Canary Islands confirm details of Covid test for tourists

Visitors to the Canary Islands will need to provide a negative Covid-19 test, effective 14 November.

The new rule applies to all tourists over six years of age and the test can be a 'Covid-19 PCR or antigen test, certified by health authorities within a maximum period of 72 hours prior to their arrival'.

A statement confirming the new rule says: "The test must certify that the individual has tested negative and is not a transmitter of Covid-19 in order to access tourist accommodation.

"Tourist accommodation providers have the responsibility under this new regulation to verify the test certificates provided by tourist accommodation users.

"They also have the obligation to provide information to tourists regarding the locations in which diagnostic tests can be performed in the event that a particular tourist arrives without sufficient documentation.

"Under this law, tourist accommodation providers must deny access to any tourist who arrives to their establishment without a negative test for Covid-19."
