  1. Hiya, thanks for this wonderful site. I so miss going to Gran Canaria. It’s always felt like my second home. I was wondering if you knew what countries it is accepting visitors from? Or if you have a link that would keep me on top of it, will you please re-direct me? Kind Regards, Martina.

    1. You also need to bring a negative COVID test for a booking on Gran Canaria.
      Privatz hospitals do quick test for 30euros.

  2. Banging my head against brick wall, supposed to be coming over 26/02, easyjet say flight still on, UK Gov says we can’t fly?? Do i swap dates or hang on??

    1. Hi Paul. The Spanish council of ministers approved this Tuesday a new extension of the restrictions on flights from the United Kingdom, South Africa and Brazil until the 04th of March 1600 hours.

  3. where to register to ensure receiving the SMS for covd vaccination?
    I want to ensure to be in the database
    Also where are the vaccination clinics, nowhere to be found?

  4. Yet again no info on vaccinations. These are THE most important figures as it drives everything else, falling cases, falling hospitalisations, falling deaths, getting on the UK green list. Why don;t you talk about this subject?

    1. I do give vaccine info in the post. The new cases falling are combined with vaccines rolled out, and I do mention that at times. I don’t want the report to get overloaded with info as it does take time to put together. Thanks for the feedback.

  5. Hi Pat,

    What COVID19 levels are all the islands on at present?
    Is their a review imminent?


    1. Hi Kieran. Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote are on Level 2. Fuerteventura, La Palma, La Gomera are on Level 1. They review every Thursday. I update this on my website.

  6. COVID vaccination?? Well I’m 60 year old UK ex-pat resident here in Las Palmas and I am STILL waiting for the SMS on my phone to start the process. Meanwhile the people getting their second dose are getting younger and younger and quitting their masks. Each time I call 012 number they tell me “este tranquil y espere, le van a contactar” That’s how they treat you when you’re a non-working non-tourist you live here and speak with an english accent.

    1. Hi Marc. Sorry to hear that. I have a friend also living in Las Palmas. He was waiting for an SMS and was told to wait when he contacted the 012 number. Eventually, he walked into his local medical centre. It turns out his phone number was incorrect in the system. He is an over 70 ex-pat and has had 2 shots now. I hope it works out for you.

  7. Hi what’s the latest entry requirements to tenerife from the UK?

    My hotel doesnt require anything from me.

    Kind regards
