As of today, May 15th, the Canary Islands (Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro) and the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Formentera, Mallorca and Menorca) have ‘Yellow’ travel advice. This means people can travel there again, but there are still risks.

The negative test and the quarantine obligation ends

You do not need to present a negative test upon returning from these areas. You also do not need to be quarantined when you arrive in the Netherlands.

Keep in mind that travelers to the Canary Islands and Balearic Islands still have PCR testing requirements from the Spanish authorities. This still applies throughout Spain to all adults and also to children from 6 years of age. The test can be taken 72 hours before arrival. On most of the islands, local measures are being taken to prevent the spread of the virus. Keep this in mind and inquire before leaving. Procedures may also change during your stay.

Since the announcement earlier this week that the countries will turn yellow, the number of reservations for the Greek and Spanish islands has increased, among other things. According to Health Care Minister De Jonge, more and more countries are expected to end up yellow because the situation is improving rapidly thanks to vaccines.

Soon no more PRC testing for Spain

Spain’s Minister of State for Tourism, Fernando Valdes, announced Friday that Spain plans to accept people from European Union countries with low HIV cases without a PCR test or proof of vaccination starting May 20. This is to stimulate the flow of travelers to Spain.

The British are welcome in Spain again

Spain also wants to allow British citizens who want to travel to Spain to enter without a PCR test. Due to the advancement of vaccinations and the decrease in infections, the UK’s infection rate has decreased to such an extent that Spain does not consider the country to be a danger zone. Now the British have to wait for the European Union to open its external borders to non-essential travel, which is expected to happen on May 20, according to Spanish Tourism Minister Reyes Maruto.
