So are Brits banned from Tenerife?

Playa de las Américas from the air

You can't have missed the headlines on some of the tabloids in Britain this week screaming that Brits have been banned from Spain. But is this so? In the Spanish press, the language has [mostly] been more diplomatic and euphemistic.

Discussing the idea of establishing "reciprocity" agreements between autonomous communities or countries and establishing "green corridors" (or air bridges) between territories that have the same epidemiological characteristics, the Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce of the Government of the Canary Islands, Yaiza Castilla, has made it plain that the United Kingdom, the principle foreign tourist market for the archipelago, is developing the "most backward" response to the pandemic and is also no longer [an EU] community territory after 'Brexit', which forces other types of negotiations.

So, whilst the word 'banned' has not actually been used, it is certainly true that, currently, British tourists will not be allowed to visit Spain and the Canary Islands when the country reopens to tourism, until the coronavirus situation improves in the UK.

And it's still impossible to predict when or how this situation will change.

Top holiday destinations for Brits - will they let you in?

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
