FAQs and matters of interest

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. Is a mask mandatory in the Canary Islands?


As in the rest of Spain, the use of masks is not mandatory in the archipelago. Each individual can responsibly decide whether to use one.

2. 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.

3. 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. 

4. What measures will I find at the airport and/or on board the aircraft?


Use of masks is no longer mandatory in the airport or during the flight.

Whenever possible, we recommend that you check in online to avoid unnecessary formalities at the airport. 

5. 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.

At the moment, daily connections 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.

The European Union has set up a website and a mobile app that provides all the information you need to travel to each European Union member state, the requirements at each destination and other information required by tourists. The site is called "Re-open EU" and provides travellers with the procedures to follow before travelling to each destination.
