August 6, 2020

The governments of Austria and Denmark on Thursday issued travel warnings for Spain, excluding the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands, fearing that their citizens will choose Spanish territory as a vacation destination amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Austrian government, which has warned of an increase in coronavirus cases in Spain, has made it clear that, although measures were originally intended to be taken in relation to the autonomous communities of Catalonia, Aragon and Navarre, it has finally decided to extend the warning to the whole country with the exception of the island areas.

They have also asked their citizens to undergo a COVID-19 test within a maximum of 72 hours prior to the flight when they return to Austria from Spain, according to the newspaper “Die Presse”.
