Tenerife COVID-19 Regulations Update

In light of the introduction of measures to restrict mobility on the Island of Tenerife, decreed by the Canary Islands Government, between December 18th and January 2nd it is important to note that:

  • These measures do not affect the national and international tourists who have planned to come to the Island of Tenerife.
  • These tourists can benefit from the regulations contemplated in Decree-Law 17/2020 of extraordinary measures in tourism matters approved by the Canary Islands Government on October 29th, 2020.

In order for tourists over the age of six to access accommodation on the Canary Islands they must complete an active infection diagnostic test certified by the health authorities within a maximum period of 72 hours prior to their arrival which establishes that the individual does not carry the virus which spreads COVID-19.

During their stay at the Island of Tenerife, tourists must respect the night mobility limitations established in this new measure that limits the circulation of persons at night-time from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day.

General recommendations for international travellers before the trip:

  • Consult the boarding conditions and requirements established by your airline before arriving at the departure airport.
  • Properly complete the active infection diagnostic test certified by the Spanish health authorities within a maximum period of 72 hours prior to arrival at the Tenerife airport.
  • Have enough copies to prove the negative result of the diagnostic test both at the airport as well as the accommodation place.
  • Keep informed through the Tourism of the Canary Islands’ channels: www.hellocanaryislands.com and its social networks.

The above regulations do not affect the rest of the Canary Islands, which as of today remain with cumulative incidence below 50 cases per 100.000 inhabitants in the last 14 days.
