Two levels of Covid testing requirements are currently in effect for visiting Fuerteventura prior to arrival.

One is mandated by the Spanish Government and relates to international travellers arriving from high risk countries. If you are an international traveller coming from a high risk country, designated in red by the EU at the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control the Spanish law applies to you. If you are also travelling from a high risk country or area you must provide a negative PCR test, carried out within 72 hours prior to your arrival in Fuerteventura.

The other by The Canarian Government applies to everyone checking into tourist accommodation including those arriving from low risk countries, other Canary Islands and mainland Spain. 

You must provide results of a test to diagnose active COVID-19 infection with a negative result carried out within 72 hours prior to arrival. PCR, seriological tests and antigen tests, provided they come with a medical certificate and are approved by your health authorities, are valid. The rapid antigen tests with no certificate are not acceptable.This must be submitted when you check into your tourist accommodation. There is no requirement for children under 6 years to present a negative diagnostic test. The test must be approved by the healthcare authorities of your own country or of the European Union.

If you are travelling from outside Spain you still need to complete the Health control form before you travel to Fuerteventura and get a QR code which you must present when you arrive. All passengers regardless of age must complete a form and obtain a QR code. You can complete the Health Control Form in English on the Travel Health portal by clicking here

In any case, it is extremely important you check your operator or airline's conditions before travelling and receive the most up to date information.
