The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has assured that the new more restrictive measures that will prevent entering or leaving the island and that will be applied in Tenerife as of midnight this Friday do not affect the arrival of foreign tourists and for which the regional decree of urgent measures for tourism will continue to apply.

The Government has clarified that the sanitary controls for COVID-19 for Tenerife, applicable from Saturday, December 19 to January 1, 2021 (incl.), does not affect the entry of tourists, who may continue to visit the entire Canary Islands and, of course, Tenerife with a PCR test, or negative equivalent to stay in regulated tourist establishments.

Torres made these comments after an online interview with tour operator TUI who have communicated that they plan to bring 100,000 tourists to the Canary Islands this month.

The Canary Islands remain interested in the European tourist demand according to the information provided this Thursday by the largest tour operator in the world, the German company, TUI, in a meeting held electronically with President Ángel Víctor Torres and the Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Yaiza Castilla.

According to the CEO of Hotels & Resorts, Cruises, Destination Experiences and Contracting of TUI, Sebastian Ebel, the forecast of tourist activity with the Canary Islands in December is to move 100,000 people, a figure that represents between 60 and 70 percent of the usual in that month for this operator in conditions without COVID-19.

Ebel based this good forecast on the rhythm of the reservations made for this last period of the year, the Presidency of the Government has indicated in a statement.

The purpose of the meeting was to monitor the situation on the islands, especially regarding the latest decisions taken that affect mobility and entry conditions to the archipelago, as well as the analysis of the international tourism situation of this tour operator of German origin.
