We have worked intensely to ensure that you can visit us in top conditions of safety, hygiene and quality. If you are visiting our islands soon, here is some information that will be of interest to you.
1. I am resident in Canaries. Do I need to submit a negative test certificate to stay in tourist accommodation in Canaries?
No, you only need to prove you are a resident of Canaries and make a responsible declaration that you have not left Canary Islands during the 15 days before you arrive at the accommodation and have not experienced symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 during that period. We provide you with the responsible declaration reference here.
2. I am going to be in the islands for a long time. Must I have a test every time I change accommodation?
No, you only need to show that you had a test within the 72 hours prior to arrival in the Canary Islands. If you have spent more than 15 days in the Canary Islands, you will need to sign a sworn declaration stating that you have not shown any symptoms of COVID-19.
3. Must I have a test before I leave the Canary Islands?
No, but you may be asked for one when you reach your destination. We recommend you always check the requirements and recommendations in your country of origin.
4. Will I be able to have a test in the islands before I leave?
Of course. There are top-level health facilities in the Canary Islands. Your accommodation will tell you the nearest place where you can get a certified diagnostic test. In any case, we will provide a list of the approved centres in the Canary Islands where you can take the test.
5. What measures will I find at the airport and/or on board the aircraft?
Remember that you must wear a mask and comply with all the safety measures imposed by the airline and the airport authorities while you are at the airport and throughout the flight.
Whenever possible, we recommend that you check in online to avoid unnecessary formalities at the airport. Remember that many airlines do not allow cabin bags other than a bag for personal use that fits underneath your seat.
6. Can I move freely between the islands?
Of course. One of the great advantages of visiting Canary Islands is that you can discover several islands on the same trip. The islands are all very different from each other, which makes the trip all the more interesting and enriching.
Movement between the islands is fully reinstated at the moment, with daily connections that allow you to easily get from one island to any other, either by plane or by boat. You can travel between the islands with airlines Binter and Canaryfly or shipping lines Fred Olsen, Armas, Biosfera Express and Líneas Romero.
7. What should I do if I get symptoms during my stay in the Canary Islands? COVID-19 medical insurance.
If you experience symptoms such as a cough, a temperature, shortness of breath or feeling generally unwell, self-isolate at your accommodation and call 900 112 061 for instructions and to be put in touch with the appropriate medical centre.
Remember that you must wear a mask if you go to any medical centre in the islands and avoid touching anything with your hands.
As what is most important is your health and well-being, if you do not have medical insurance, we will provide you with an AXA policy free of charge in Canary Islands to cover all expenses relating to COVID-19. See everything that it covers here.
