Spain is far past the smittegrænse, as the Ministry of foreign affairs has laid down, when to discourage non-necessary trips abroad.
Spain could potentially be closed to the danes, when the Ministry of foreign affairs Thursday update rejsevejledningen.
But some areas in Spain exceeds the isolation threshold.
for example, It is the popular tourist destination of Mallorca and The Canary Islands.
The Danish leisure travel, which again can be hit hard if Spain is closed, is convinced, therefore, that the Ministry of foreign affairs to find a solution.
It tells Henrik Specht, director of tour Operators in Denmark (RID).
- We expect that the foreign Ministry will amend the existing country-specific travel advice for a regionsvis breakdown for Spain. We expect it, because that's how it should be.
- From the authorities ' side, you are very busy of objective criteria for when to open and close, and we can only support. So when you combine rejsevejledningen with the regional regions, so we think it should be like that, he says.
in Order to rejsevejledningen can be strengthened in the country, there must be 30 people infected per 100,000 inhabitants in a week and Spain has right now 39 infected per 100,000 inhabitants.
The two trade associations, tour Operators in Denmark and the Danish Travel agency Association (DRF) has pointed out the problem to the Ministry of foreign affairs.
Being the whole of Spain closed for the Danish tourists, it will be another hard blow for the Danish leisure travel. The danes had just got see how they love me back, tell Henrik Specht.
- We have a leisure travel, which already is on its knees. The peak smoke. And if you do not recommend travel to Spain after having opened, and after that see how they love me have come back, it will have serious consequences for the travel industry, he says.
Danish travelers, who are currently in Spain, will not be affected, if the Danish authorities decide to discourage non-necessary travel to Spain. They can continue the journey.
the Danes, who have booked a journey, and soon to Spain, gets canceled their trip.
- It will be shame if once again, we must cancel the travel. Not least, when it happens to the destinations, where smittetallet is significantly lower than the national average, says Henrik Specht.
advice to travelers are only recommendations. It is therefore not illegal, if you do not follow them.
in addition to the number of infected looking to the Danish authorities, also at the test level, and how big a percentage of the tested, which is positive. A maximum of five percent of the tested do test positive.
advice to travelers will be updated on Thursday at 16: 00.
