Spain awarded as “Top Muslim-Friendly Emerging Destination” at Halal in Travel Awards


Spain has been considered as this year’s “Top Muslim-Friendly Emerging Destination” at the Halal in Travel Awards 2022.

The “Halal in Travel Awards” celebrates the travel industry players’ efforts that profoundly impacted the Muslim lifestyle as well as travel segments, as per the reports.


The award acknowledges the authorities’ efforts in Spain in enhancing awareness levels and thus leading to a surge in halal-friendly services, as reported by International Quran News Agency.

The award was received by the Ambassador of Spain to Singapore, Santiago Miralles, as well as Spain’s Tourism Board’s Director for Southeast Asia, New Zealand, and Australia, Monica Sanchez.

During his speech, Ambassador Miralles stressed that the Muslim-friendly services offered in Spain continued to increase due to the close collaboration between the public and private sectors. Miralles said that a large number of hotels, restaurants as well as establishments in Spain adapt to meet the needs of Muslim travellers.

Several products and services also have the Halal Certification awarded by the Halal Institute, which ensures that they meet the needed requirements under Islamic law. The list of places with halal options in Spain is extensive; besides food, the country is also known for its mosques as well as rich Islamic heritage.

However, even though it has won the Halal in Travel award, Spain’s economic sector has been highly affected by the spread of COVID-19 and its new variants.

Authorities in Spain are continuously attempting to help the country’s travel and tourism industry and welcome a large number of internationals after this industry has been among the most affected by the spread of the Coronavirus and its new variants.


Recently, it was reported that Spain recovered 85.4 per cent of international tourists in April, after opening its doors to 6.1 million international visitors who spent a total of 6,901 million euros on their trips, which means that the figures were close to pre-pandemic figures.
