Spain may be opening up for foreign tourists from July 1, but at the moment that doesn’t include the UK.

Discussions for setting up so called ‘travel corridors’ for British holidaymakers have yet to be scheduled according to the Spanish Foreign Ministry.

The bombshell for Brits came as officials said that they were planning on opening up resorts on the Balearic Islands to nearly 11,000 German tourists, a fortnight before the official reopening of the Spain’s borders.

According to official plans, border restrictions in Spain will end on July 1. A pilot scheme for German visitors, however, will begin on Monday.

With British tourists making up the vast majority of visitors to Marbella, this threatens to be a huge blow to the town ahead of an already difficult summer season.
