Logotipo We protect you protect us

We protect you protect us’, under this name we make known our commitment to
new reality marked by COVID-19. It is time to reinforce our responsibility to
customers, employees and society because we feel that, together, we form a triple
heart and a single beat.

New situation with the same peace of mind.

In order to guarantee a stay with the maximum conditions of safety and quality, and to preserve the low epidemiological incidence of the islands, we inform you of the new entry requirements to official tourist accommodation for all those users over twelve years of age coming from outside the Canary Islands.
You need at least one of the following:

  • Test negative for active COVID-19 infection in the 72 hours prior to arrival in the Canary Islands. Compulsory . The tests that are allowed are PCR (RT-PCR for COVID-19), Transcription Mediated Amplification (TMA), and Antigen tests.
  • Have an official accredited document that shows that you have been fully vaccinated in the eight months prior to your trip or have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorised by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) within the past four months and at least 15 days prior to your trip.
  • You can prove with an official medical certificate or public document that you have had and recovered from the disease within the past 6 months.

The following are excluded:

  • Children under 12 years.
  • People who can prove they are a resident of Canaries and make a responsible declaration that you have not left Canary Islands during the 15 days before you arrive at the accommodation and have not experienced symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 during that period.
  • Persons, regardless of their place of residence, who can prove that they have been outside the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands for a period of less than 72 hours prior to arrival, having remained in its territory during the 15 days prior to the aforementioned period of absence of less than 72 hours, and who also declare under their responsibility that during this period they have not had symptoms compatible with COVID-19.

Anyway, everyone who comes on holiday to the Canary Islands must go through a health inspection. This inspection varies depending on your exact circumstances. If you’re having a holiday in the islands soon, here is some information that will be of interest to you.

The Canary Islands offers travel assistance insurance to all tourists travelling to the Islands

The Government of the Canary Islands, through Promotur Turismo de Canarias, signs an agreement with the company AXA Seguros to respond to incidents related to COVID-19, among which is the need to extend stays due to quarantine.

The Canary Islands is the first Spanish Autonomous Community in which tourists will have travel assistance coverage with guarantees of medical expenses, health repatriation and extension of stays due to quarantine related to COVID-19, to comply with an obligatory confinement due to a positive result. All this, as long as it is not known before the trip, as set out in the conditions of the insurance policy.

The protection of tourists, both Spanish (including insular) and foreign, through this insurance is effective from this week and will initially be valid for 12 months. Excluded from it, are cases where the circumstances were known before the start of the trip, in accordance with the conditions of the policy.

With the subscription of this policy, the Canary Islands advance even more in their responsibility to consolidate and increase the safety and tranquillity of tourists. In addition, this travel assistance insurance reinforces the commitment to the “new normal” of GF Hoteles, another attraction of the destination, which already stands out for its health security.
