Under the Covid testing rules, there is an allowance “under exceptional” circumstances, for visitors to get a covid test in Lanzarote. Read the full details about the Covid testing requirements here in Lanzarote: Covid Testing.
Our advice is to have your test before travelling. It’s much safer for everyone travelling, if the whole aircraft has been tested, and you don’t risk arriving and having to quarantine here for your holiday because you tested positive on arrival.
Currently, many airports in Europe are gearing up to offer while you wait testing to passengers. Heathrow has this available now through the Sofitel Hotel on a “test and fly” overnight package and Gatwick will do so soon. We’re sure other airports will follow suit.
If you arrive without a test:
- Your accommodation provider may not allow you to check-in – if they do allow you to do so, you will be quarantined in your room until you have a result – this can be up to 72 hours
- If your test is positive, you will be moved to a government quarantine accommodation
