In Fuerteventura the State of Alarm came to an end on Sunday May 9th 2021 but apart from tourists from the UK still not being welcome there's still a lot of confusion as usual. The Canarian Government has attempted to extend the overnight curfew that had expired but as far as we are aware were unsuccessful.

Even though the UK currently will ease travel restrictions from May 17th UK citizens cannot travel to Spain until May 31st, however there is a possibility that this will change between now and then.

Before departing to Fuerteventura be aware that there's an EU digital green certificate in the pipeline, this is an EU initiative, but talks are on-going with countries outside the EU, including the UK, to encourage them to adopt the system. This could take many months to become reality, details are here.

Current entry requirements can be found here, passengers travelling by air or sea must complete and sign an online Health Control Form no more than 48 hours prior to travel declaring any known history of exposure to COVID-19 and giving contact details. You must provide a negative Covid test certificate for a test taken within 72 hours of arrival which you may need to produce at the airport and or at your accommodation.

The UK governments “traffic light” travel system comes into effect from May 17th and It currently applies to England only. The UK has not considered The Canaries seperately from Spain so currently Fuerteventura is Amber so before returning you will need to;
Complete a passenger locator form 48 hours before leaving Fuerteventura.
Get an antigen (rapid flow) test in Fuerteventura within 3 days of travelling home
Get a PCR test on days two and eight after returning to England.
Self isolate for 10 days after you get home, or test to release on day five.

So visiting Fuerteventura is still quite a challenge but the beaches are open and very quiet, many of the hotels are still closed as are many bars and restaurants but the supermarkets are open and you can still find places to eat out as there are not as many tourists as usual.
