Canary Islands Allows Vaccinated Travellers With No Covid Test

The Canary Islands have updated its entry requirements to allow those who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to visit official tourist accommodation without taking a test.

With a UK government update this afternoon, the islands are hoping to be added to the green list.

Yesterday’s update brings the autonomous islands, which include Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, in line with the policy in mainland Spain, which does not require tests for fully-vaccinated arrivals.

Official documents stating when the vaccine was administered must be shown.

Anyone who meets this criteria and has completed a vaccine schedule within the previous eight months can enter without the need for a test.

Those who are not vaccinated must provide a negative Covid test, either PCR or antigen, carried out within a maximum period of 72 hours before arrival.
