THE Canary Islands is to enforce new rules which will require all arrivals to have a negative coronavirus test from November 14th.

This will apply to all nationalities, including Brits once the UK government gives the all-clear for international travel, and will include children over the age of six.

The Canary Islands, which includes Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, are currently the only place in Spain where Brits can travel without the need to go into quarantine on their return as this was lifted by the UK government as a result of the low incidence of coronavirus.

However, there is currently a halt on international holidays following Boris Johnson's announcement of the new lockdown from November 5th to December 2nd.

The Canary tourism department is to start an information campaign for clients and accommodation regarding the obligatory nature of the test so that people know what to expect when restrictions ease in the UK.

The new rule establishes that as of November 14th, all visitors staying in tourist accommodation will have to present a certificate proving a negative diagnostic test
