Most remaining COVID measures on the Canary Islands are expected to be dropped from today.

The islands’ Regional Parliament is discussing the move today, a spokesperson for the Spanish Tourist Office confirmed to Travel Gossip.

The changes mean indoor and outdoor venues can operate at full capacity and dancing will be allowed again in clubs and discos.

However, face masks must still be worn indoors.

President Angel Victor Torres said on Tuesday most measures were expected to be dropped this week, but said rules could be reinstated if COVID levels rise.

Travel rules remain in place. Currently, fully vaccinated British travellers can enter the islands, as can unvaccinated visitors who have proof of COVID recovery.

Unvaccinated teens aged 12-17 can visit provided they have a negative PCR test result and are travelling with vaccinated adults.

All travellers will also need to fill out a pre-travel form and obtain a QR code to show at border control.
