Covid: Pre-departure travel tests to be scrapped

Happy New Year! We are happy to inform you that he rules on testing are to be eased for people travelling to England, the government has announced. Under the new rules:

  • From 04:00 GMT on Friday 7 January, people who are fully vaccinated and those aged under-18 will no longer need to take a test two days before travelling to England from countries outside the UK and the Common Travel Area. On arrival, they will have to take a PCR test but they will no longer have to self-isolate while awaiting the result
  • From 04:00 GMT on Sunday 9 January they will only have to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test on day two. But this test must be bought from a private test provider – free NHS tests are not allowed
  • Unvaccinated passengers will need to continue to take a pre-departure test, PCR tests on day two and day eight, and self-isolate for 10 days

And will provide you with updated information that is needed – depending on where you come from – for you to travel to the Canary Islands.

Looking forward to welcome you!
