Will the Canary Islands be on the green list for summer holidays?
The Canary Islands remain on on the UK's amber list, along with mainland 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, double vaxxed Brits can skip the quarantine but will still need to have negative Covid tests pre-arrival and on day two, with the new rules in place from July 19.
The Balearic islands were added to the green list, meaning sun-starved Brits can jet off to Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca.
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, Spain, including the Canaries, now requires Brits to be fully vaccinated to to have a negative Covid test to enter.
Spain lifted their lockdown rules last month although some curfews remain in place across the islands.
Tenerife has the strictest rules, with just 50 per cent capacity inside restaurants and bars, as long as 10 per cent are vaccinated.
Bars and restaurants must close at midnight, and can only have four non-vaccinated guests at a table, or six if all vaccinated.
Similar rules are in place for Lanzarote, while Gran Canaria can serve until 2am, with 75 per cent capacity inside.
