Update on entry requirements

Update on entry requirements
Blog Charco del Palo
After the Canary Government initially requested a negative test from November 14th on in order to move into an accommodation in the Canary Islands, it is now fundamentally necessary to present a negative PCR test for entry from a "risk area" to Spain!
  • The obligation to present a negative corona test now applies from the age of 6 years on
  • It has to be a PCR test or a TMA test (TMA tests are only available in Spain at the moment), not older than 72 hours
  • The test must be in Spanish, English, German or French
  • The test result must contain the following information: name of the traveler, passport or identity card number (this number must be identical to the passport / identity card number that was used in the electronic entry form), date of test acceptance, contact details of the laboratory, test procedure used, negative test result
  • This obligation does not apply to entry by land.
  • Holiday guests from mainland Spain now also need a negative test, either a PCR test, a TMA test, or a rapid test (antigen test). Also not older than 72 hours.
It is also mandatory to download the free Radar Covid app on your smartphone for the duration of your stay in the Canary Islands, including 2 weeks afterwards.

It is also necessary since early summer to fill in an online form, from 48 hours before arrival. You will then receive a QR code that you can either download to your smartphone or print out for presentation on entry at the airport. The Spanish Ministry of Health has provided the following link where you can fill in the form online: (the language can be selected at the top right)
