Travel is now allowed between islands in level 3 or 4 with a negative test
The Canary Islands Government has decided to allow entry to or exit from islands that are level 3 and 4 by presenting a negative test result carried out within 72 hours prior to arrival at the destination. This is stated in a resolution by the director of the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS), Conrado Domínguez, made public today, Thursday, which determines the conditions and requirements that will regulate inter-island travel.
The resolution refers to both air and sea travel that affect the islands in alert level 3 or 4, and will be in force from 00:00h on April 30th for as long as level 3 or 4 are active in the archipelago, but means that residents of these islands can now travel to the rest of the archipelago for leisure and holidays without needing a justified reason.
According to the resolution of the director of the SCS, the PDIA will not be required for children under the age of 6, and the diagnostic tests of active infection permitted are PCR, antigen and TMA. The supporting documentation for the test must be the original, written in Spanish, and will be valid both in paper and electronic format.
The document will contain, at least, the following information:
- Name and surname of the traveller.
- DNI/NIE/TIE number
- Date of the test,
- Identification and contact information of the health centre that performed the test.
- Technique used.
- Negative result of the test.
In the case of antigen tests, it must also reflect the homologated specificity and sensitivity.
