“The Spain Tourism Board recognizes the importance of the luxury segment and its very high potential to travel first, as outbound travel slowly starts to resume. We aim to connect with the segment and supply them with what’s new in Spain in terms of products and safety protocols”, stated Spain Tourism Board Director for Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand Monica Sanchez.
Spain began its summer tourism season on 7 June by welcoming vaccinated tourists regardless of the country of residence or flight departure. The improvement of the epidemiological situation in Spain and the developing progress in the vaccination roll-out, both in Spain and in many countries around the world, made it possible to ease the measures for entry into Spain for tourists.
