If you're hoping to make a European escape sometime soon, good news.

Spain’s president Pedro Sánchez has declared the country will resume admitting foreign tourists on July 1, meaning Ibiza will be open for business.

“Spain receives more than 80 million visitors a year," Sánchez said.

"I am announcing that from July [on], Spain will reopen for foreign tourism in conditions of safety. Foreign tourists can also start planning their holidays in our country.

"Spain needs tourism, and tourism needs safety in both origin and destination. We will guarantee that tourists will not run any risks, nor will they bring any risk to our country”.

Sánchez said Spain’s governments have been busy preparing for the return tourists. The tourism industry reportedly makes up for nearly 75% of the island’s income.
