Canary Islands – amber but ‘safe’

Despite being on the UK’s amber travel list, the FCO still considers the Canary Islands a safe destination. This is due to its low incidence rate. As with all Spain, there is no need to provide a negative covid test on arrival at the Canary Islands. However, if staying in tourist accommodation, travellers must present the accommodation with a negative covid test certificate. 

President of the Canary Islands government, Angel Victor Torres, said yesterday he is expecting the UK to announce the Canary Islands as on the green list of travel from June 7th.
