COVID TESTING; As the pandemic forces change upon us, in the Canary Islands we work intensely every day to ensure you can visit us in maximum conditions of safety, hygiene and quality.
In order to maintain Lanzarote’s low incident rate for the pandemic and at the same time guarantee the sustainability of our tourist activity, all visitors over the age of six who are not arriving from Canary Islands must present a certificate that is officially recognised by the healthcare authorities to show that they have tested negative for active COVID-19 infection in the past 72 hours.
This certificate will be required to check in all tourist accommodation in the island.
You may show a digital or hard copy of it and it must contain:
- Date and time the test was taken.
- Identity of the individual taking it.
- The laboratory responsible for verification.
- The nature of the laboratory, and the negative result.
- This test needs to be a PCR if you are entering Spain.
This certificate will not be required for non-residents who show proof (in the form of a travel document) that they have been in Canary Islands territory for the 15 days prior to the date they are checking into this tourist accommodation, and that they have not had any symptoms of COVID-19 during that time.
Our tourist accommodation will deny entry to anyone who does not comply with the above conditions.
Canary Islands residents must show proof that they are such and declare, under their own responsibility, that they have not left Canary Islands in the 15 days prior to arriving at this establishment and that they have not had any symptoms of COVID-19 during that time.
All visitors staying in regulated accommodation on the islands benefit from special Covid insurance. This insurance will cover the cost of treatment and extended stays for quarantine, if they contract the virus while on the islands.
As anywhere else in the world, Lanzarote has its specific measures. We have added them all up to give you a general view on what your holiday would look like.
