The Balearic Islands welcome domestic tourists without PCR testing.

THE Balearic Islands welcome national tourists from Spain without PCR testing under certain conditions.

Domestic tourists who have already been vaccinated with at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine will not need a PCR test to enter the islands.

In other good news, Spanish travelers who have not yet received the vaccine will only have to provide a negative antigen test after Sunday as well.

Your home country in Spain may also influence entry requirements to the islands as holidaymakers from Autonomous Communities where the cumulative incidence over 14 days is less than 60 cases per 100,000 population will also not need to take a test. This is limited because currently only the Valencian community has a cumulative incidence rate over 14 days low enough to meet these requirements, as reported La Vanguardia.

Tourists from elsewhere in the world will have to present a PCR test either at the airport or in the ports of the islands.

The announcement was made by the President of the Government of the Balearic Islands, Francina Armengol, at the Fitur tourism fair in Madrid. He commented: “We guarantee health security, we guarantee to keep the cumulative incidence low at the same time as we increase the vaccination rate in the islands.”

The islands focus on claiming to be the safest destination for vacationers in the Mediterranean.

Armengol pointed out that the islands are a safe tourist destination for those coming from Germany, the Netherlands and also the Nordic countries. These countries do not require PCR testing or quarantine when people return from the islands. Which is great news for island tourism.

Armengol commented that: “The Balearics are open thanks to the work of the whole of society and having opted for a slow but rigorous de-escalation.”
