British Expats on Spain’s Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca angry at the news Nationals could be deported for disobeying UK quarantine rules

British Expats could face deportation if they disobey the UK`s quarantine law

Foreigners entering the UK could be deported if they disobey quarantine rules

UNDER new restrictions laid out by ministers, anyone entering the UK not included in the exemption list could be deported back to their country of origin if they flaunt the 14-day quarantine period.

The rules, due to be set out by Home Secretary Priti Patel on Wednesday, have caused unease in the Tory ranks and been condemned by businesses, especially the airlines who have repeatedly warned the plans would wreck the industry.

A defiant Priti Patel insisted the 14-day quarantine for UK arrivals is required to prevent more deaths – as a poll found two-thirds of UK residents back the move.

The new law, coming into force on June 8, will see people arriving in the UK told to isolate for 14 days to prevent coronavirus cases being introduced from overseas, British expats are angry because Spain has the best record in Europe over the handling of the coronavirus and many think it should be waived for them

The Home Office said removal from the country would be considered “as a last resort” for foreign nationals who refuse to comply with the order to stay at a single residence. Boris Johnson is also working with ministers to create so-called ‘Air Bridges’ that would allow easier travel between countries with low Covid-19 rates.

      According to worldometers, Spain and the UK have the same rate of deaths per million and Spain has a higher rate of cases per million. So logic says there is no reason for Spain to have greater restrictions on UK visitors. And the UK restrictions in visitors from Spain is valid.

        Spain have worked hard to bring it under control, and have been very hard on people in a serve lockdown. As for us, well we did buger all and the idiots are doing this type of stunt just to save face

      To me, Spain, Greece, Portugal reigniting CV-19 by importing drunken Brits for a few quick euros is madness.

      That’s fair to me, after all Spain is rightly very harsh with tourists who break the laws whilst in Spain, and the fact that they are ex Pat’s make no difference at all, if we have to self isolate when we return home, it should be so when they come to the UK too unless there are recipicle procedures in place.
      My teachings tell me to respect the laws of any country where I may find myself, it is simply good manners

      What absolute idiots they are, as 2 ranked corona hot spot why do you think tourists are more of a danger than the Million+ brits who where out at the weekend…. It would make more sense to deport them
