A vaccine passport will help you get into Ibiza this summer.

Span's tourism minister, Reyes Maroto, has said that a vaccine passport will come into play as an "element of safe mobility" when the country establishes travel corridors and begins to encourage travel once lockdown eases later this year.

Majorca Daily Bulletin reports that Spain is working on a vaccine passport with the EU, with Reyes stating that the country is "leading an initiative to adopt common protocols and generate the confidence that travellers need in order to once more make safe trips".

Earlier this month Maroto said that Spain would be ready to welcome tourists from the spring and that the country's "priority in 2021 is to reactivate tourism and resume safe mobility on a global scale as soon as possible."

Tourism is a major part of Spain's economy and the country's leaders are currently being forthright in wanting to open up foreign travel as soon as possible.

Maroto said that more information about the EU vaccine passport would be forthcoming and that it "will be available to governments and the whole of the tourism sector in order to guarantee the restart of safe travel".

She mentioned the Balearics as already having "protocols" approved for tourist travel corridors, something that she says Spain is a "pioneer" of.

Last year Ibiza was open for tourism during the summer, with some socially-distanced parties taking place on the island.

It is hoped that Ibiza will enjoy a more 'normal' summer season in 2021 and bars and restaurants will be able to open their terraces from March 5.

The UK government hopes to have offered a vaccination to the whole of the adult population by July 31.
