In an announcement to come today, Thursday the 24th of March, the Canaries are set to remove Covid requirements for most local measures, according to the president, Angel Victor Torres.
On Tuesday the 22nd of March, Canaries president, Angel Victor Torres reportedly confirmed that most local Covid requirements in the Canaries will be removed from the 24th. This was announced with the caution that measures may be put back in place if the Covid rates change. It is still viewed as the next big step for the Canaries to return to normal.
It was stated that the Canaries will remove Covid requirements including removing curbs on closing, restaurant and bar capacity, and the size of groups allowed in outdoor and indoor spaces. Indoor and outdoor venues are expected to be allowed to host full capacity again, with dancing allowed in nightclubs and discos. Face masks will still be required indoors.
Though the travel requirements will remain the same, this could make a huge difference for travellers looking to go to the Canaries in the spring and summer, with local restrictions much simpler and easier to follow. This could also boost consumer confidence once these updates have gone live on the Foreign Travel Advice page.
The current travel rules for entering the Canaries are as follows:
- Travellers 18+ must be fully vaccinated or have evidence of a full recovery from Covid.
- Travellers 12-17 who are unvaccinated can enter as long as they are accompanied by a vaccinated adult and have proof of a negative PCR test taken pre-departure.
- All travellers must fill out a pre-departure form.
This is excellent news for upcoming holidays as the spring and summer seasons approach and more destinations are doing the same as the Canaries remove Covid requirements. Consumer confidence is getting a great boost approaching the summer.
