Many travelers from the Canary Islands wonder if today they have to present a diagnostic test of active infection (PDIA) with a negative result in Covid-19 in the ports or airports of the Islands to enter or leave Tenerife, as demanded by the health authorities in the state of alarm.
The answer is no. In fact, the regional president himself, Ángel Víctor Torres, yesterday ruled out the perimeter closure, recalling that this measure was prohibited both by the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands and by the Supreme Court.
Therefore, it is possible to travel to or from the islands in alert level 3 without having to present the aforementioned test with a negative result or a responsible declaration.
It should be remembered that the High Court rejected the appeal filed by the Government of the Canary Islands after the position against the TSJC, which also rejected the perimeter closure of the islands at alert level 3 and 4 against the coronavirus, an extreme in which it is from this Thursday exclusively the island of Tenerife.
To travel between islands you only need your usual documentation (ID, passport or similar) and a ticket.
Despite the fact that there are no limitations for inter-island travel, both shipping companies and airlines that cover the routes in the Canary Islands recall the need to scrupulously comply with hygienic and sanitary measures to prevent the spread of the virus, such as wearing a mask, covering nose and mouth, keep a safe distance and use hydroalcoholic gel dispensers.
