Will the Canary Islands be on the green list for summer holidays?

The Spanish islands remain on on the UK's amber list, along with the rest of Spain.

This means Brits will need the following when returning to the UK:

  • A negative test taken pre-arrival
  • A mandatory ten-day quarantine at home
  • Two Covid tests, taken on day two and day eight

However, while travelling to amber list destinations is not banned, the UK government warn against it.

Boris Johnson previously said: "It is not somewhere you should be going on holiday, let me be very clear about that."

Benidorm mayor warned that Brits are unlikely to return to Spain before the end of July.

Toni Perez said "Our hope is that we can begin to receive British tourists at the end of July and start of August in the run-up to an autumn we hope will take place with the maximum normality possible."

What are the Canary Islands travel rules?

Spain lifted all restrictions for British travellers last month, meaning arrivals do not need a negative test or to quarantine.

However, the Canaries still enforce a negative Covid test on non-vaccinated arrivals.

Spain lifted their lockdown rules last month although curfews remain in place across the islands.

Restaurants and bars must close at midnight with a maximum of six people per table outside, or four inside.

Here is the full list of countries on the green list, amber list and red list right now.

Portugal has also been added to the amber list, despite only being included on the green list weeks ago.
