The business sector of Malaga’s Costa del Sol has received with “hope and joy” the Decision of the Government of the United Kingdom to simplify its travel management system from Monday, The president of CIT Marbella, Juan José González, highlighted this Monday.
It is, without a doubt, a “great news”, has assured the head of CIT Marbella, who hopes that those who have booked some vacation days travel to the Costa del Sol this fall.
Under the new regulations in force in the United Kingdom, se removes the old “semaphore” system, so that it only maintains a red list of countries with a higher risk of covid – the green and amber ones are eliminated – and reduces the number of tests that vaccinated travelers must provide.
Thus, it will suffice that the British get a PCR, which “greatly reduces the cost of the trip,” said González, who believes thatThe reduction of time and expenses associated with the trip will encourage the return to Spain, and specifically to the Costa del Sol, from tourists from the Saxon country.
It will go from “very slim chance of the British coming to Spain to already decide to come for him moderate cost of the antigen test “, has asserted.
The change in the system means that vaccinated travelers and travelers under 18 years of age from more than 50 countries excluded from the red list and of which the UK recognizes the vaccine, they will not have to take a test before boarding, or confine themselves, and will only have to undergo a PCR test on the second day of arrival in the UK.
On a date to be determined later this month, that PCR will be replaced by a cheaper antigen test in the region of England, indicates the statement released by the British Executive.
