New COVID travel rules for Spain, Canary Islands & Balearics as holiday season approaches


Canary Islands travel rules

The Canaries’ rules are similar to those of Spain, as you need to be fully vaccinated or have proof of recovery to visit.

Again, unvaccinated teens aged 12 to 17 can visit provided they have proof of a negative test taken within 72 hours before travel.

You may also be required to show proof of a negative coronavirus test for your accommodation – check with your tour operator or travel agent.

All travellers will need to fill out a pre-travel online form before visiting the Canaries.

If Britons are travelling to the islands from Spain, the Foreign Office travel advice notes: “To travel to the Canary or Balearic islands from mainland Spain, you may need to show a negative COVID test depending on the region you are travelling from.

“Check with your travel operator and the local authorities in your final destination for guidance on domestic entry requirements.”

In a recent holiday boost for Britons, the Canaries have ended their local coronavirus restrictions, which included removing capacity limits for venues such as bars and restaurants, and once again allowing dancing in nightclubs.
