The Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a new recommendation that prevents unnecessary trips to the Spanish regions of Aragon, Catalonia and Navarre due to the recent increase in coronavirus infections, according to the newspaper ‘Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung’.
Germany’s recommendation comes after the British government has advised against non-essential travel to Spain and has decided to impose a period of forty-four days on all travelers arriving from Spanish territory. Last Friday, France advised its citizens not to travel to Catalonia.
The recommendation issued by the German Foreign Ministry not to undertake any non-essential trips concerns Catalonia due to the situation in Barcelona and on the Costa Brava as well as in Aragon and Navarra.
The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs excludes the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands from its recommendation not to undertake any non-essential trips. The department headed by Heiko Maas has decided to update its recommendations on Spain due to “high infection rates”.
