Spain expects to be added to the U.K.’s Green list on June 7, and Brits are already flooding in even though Spain is currently classed as amber.
Fernando Valdes, Spain’s tourism minister has highlighted that Spain should not be on the amber list, and that he expects the country to make it onto the green list during the next review.
