  • Holidaymakers who had not returned from Spain and its islands by midnight Saturday are forced to quarantine for 14 days

The UK has removed Spain from its list of countries from which those arriving are exempt from two-week-long quarantine after entering the country. "In epidemiological terms, it would be safer to be in these destinations than in the UK", Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said.

Data up to 19 July suggested there were lower rates of infection in the Balearic and Canary Islands than in mainland Spain.

He added that the Spanish Government was now in discussions with Britain to see if changes could be made to the new quarantine rules.

It comes after holidaymakers also called on the British Government to take a more "targeted" approach to the quarantine rules.

Downing Street warned "no travel is risk-free" after a coronavirus quarantine requirement for people arriving in the United Kingdom from Spain was reintroduced.

The UK is now advising against all non-essential travel to the Balearic and Canary Islands after Spain recorded a rise in coronavirus cases.

"The error, in my judgement, and hence the lack of alignment of the United Kingdom's response, is based on considering the cumulative incidence of (the virus in) the entire country", Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said in an interview with Telecinco television on Monday.

A Foreign Office spokesman said the decision to change advice for travelling to Spain and its islands considered "the impact of the requirement to self-isolate on return to the UK".

He said: "Unfortunately no travel is risk-free during this pandemic and disruption is possible and so anyone travelling overseas should be aware that our travel advice and exemption list is under constant review as we monitor the global situation".

Airlines TUI and Jet2 announced they were cancelling all flights and holidays to Balearic Islands and Canary Islands after the FCO's updated its travel advice.
