Do I need a booster to go to Lanzarote?
It is being reported in newspapers that Spain (including Lanzarote) will only admit travellers with vaccination certificates indicating they have been fully vaccinated against the virus within the previous 270 days.(Circa 9 months) effective Feb 1
This is yet to appear on Government websites
This means if you had your 2nd jab on May 1 you will need to have had a booster to enter after Feb 1
The booster jab must also have been administered at least 14 days before travel and evidence of the third dose must be contained on the NHS app (which usually appears after 48 hours), or document used for entry.
To summarise, if you have had your booster on Feb 1 you are good to go, at least until Nov 1
Just need to complete a Spanish locator form and evidence of your vaccination status
For 3 weeks now Lanzarote has been on Level 3 with cases now slowly reducing and fortunately the number is hospital minimal compared to the last wave
For visitors the primary difference is face masks -they must be worn outside and indoors while walking( not in the countryside)
75% capacity on terraces / 40% capacity indoors in restaurants / bars and they close at 1am
Covid passes required to enter (not being fully enforced)
Keep safe everyone
