Fantastic news for anybody travelling to Tenerife - from Saturday 26th March 2022 all local COVID restrictions are being removed! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 This means we'll finally be able to go out dancing again... woohoo!
This marks a watershed moment for the Canary Islands as it's the first time we've had a complete lifting of restrictions since the pandemic began. It's hoped that as we learn to live with COVID, the easing of restrictions will help tourism return to it's pre-pandemic levels.
There are still restrictions in place for entering Tenerife (and Spain as a whole) as these are set at the national level, including entry restrictions on passengers from the UK / non-EU counties, and the need for every passenger to be logged on a Spanish Passenger Locator Form.
Here is the list of things that haven't changed:
- Entry requirements are still in place. If your visiting from the UK (or any other non-EU / Schengen country) and are 18 or older you'll still need to be either fully vaccinated or have a proof of recovery. See our Tenerife Entry Requirements guide for more info.
- Every passenger still needs to have their details logged on a Spanish Passenger Locator Form when enterting from any country outside of Spain
- Masks must still be worn indoors and in places where 1.5 meter distance cannot be maintained
We have updated our COVID Restrictions guide to reflect the new changes, and it makes for a pleasantly short read!
These changes come into effect at midnight on Friday 25th March 2022.
