Travel requirements and Covid-19 tests by country

Here’s what you’ll need to know for our winter destinations

The following testing requirements apply to our winter destinations, which are to travel corridor locations for departures before 22nd March 2021. Note that the advice on this page applies to travellers who have not left the UK within 14 days of departure. Always check official government guidelines just in case rules change. 

 

Canary Islands (Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife)

  • You will have to complete the Spanish government's health form within 48 hours of departure. Once complete, you will receive a QR code which you must present at the border
  • When checking into your accommodation, you must present a negative Covid-19 test, taken no more than 72 hours earlier 
  • You must download and use the RADAR Covid Notification app during your stay and for 15 days after your return date
  • These rules apply to all travellers aged 7 and over
  • Always check local government guidelines and FCDO advice before travelling
  • While airlines are still flying out to the Canary Islands, UK government rules say that travellers should self isolate for 10 days on return. 

 

 

 

Madeira

  • You must take a Covid-19 test within 72 hours before departure - the negative result can either be uploaded onto your questionnaire or shown at the airport
  • You will have to submit a traveller questionnaire 12-48 hours before departure and present a QR code on arrival, which will be sent via email
  • If you do not have proof of a test, you will be able to take one at the airport and self-isolate at your accommodation until the results are known. If you test positive on arrival, you’ll have to repeat the test each week and remain in confinement until you get a negative test result
  • Always check local government guidelines before travelling

 

Greece (for Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Zakynthos and Kos)

  • There is currently no need to get tested before travelling, though you may be tested at the airport. Results will take around 24 hours and during this time, you will likely be asked to undergo quarantine until you get a negative result. There may be other extenuating circumstances which will require you to quarantine. 
  • You (and everyone you’re travelling with) will need to complete a PLF form 24 hours before you travel. Failure to do so may result in a 500 euro fine or refusal to enter. After completing the form, you’ll receive a QR code at midnight the day before you depart. If you're travelling as a household, you may complete one form with all adults and children included
  • Always check local government guidelines before travelling
