Germany keeps the Canary Islands on their travel black list
The German authorities have updated their travel black list and have kept the Canary Islands on their list of risk destinations and advise against travelling to the islands. On the other hand, the Balearic Islands, Murcia, Valencia and Galicia are off the list and can receive tourists from Germany
The Canary Islands has been considered a risk territory by Germany since February 21st, according to the update announced by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), and any travellers returning home from the islands must quarantine and present a negative Covid test carried out at least 48 hours before their arrival in Germany.
Between January of this year and February 20th, the whole of Spain was considered a territory of high incidence for Covid-19 by Germany, but the above areas have managed to reduce contagion, and subsequently travellers only need a test when returning home, not quarantine.
Germany is the second source market for tourists to Spain, behind only the United Kingdom. The four autonomous communities that receive the most German travellers annually are the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Andalusia and Catalonia.
