Travel to Canary Islands still requires quarantine on return?

Hi,
Germany and the UK have added the Canary Islands to their safe travel list, so people returning to Germany or the UK from the islands are not required to quarantine.

As far as I can see from the online information Switzerland is still lumping the whole of Spain together including all the Spanish Islands. So, I can't go on holiday there atm.
Anyone have any better information?

As long as it is not explicitly taken off the list, you need to quarantine upon return.

The other question is: Do the Canary Islanders let the Swiss in?

AFAIK they're desperate for the money and not preventing Swiss citizens/residents from visiting. Though maybe they should be!

I'm gutted the Swiss haven't updated the list - there are hardly any cases there now, and far less than in Switzerland.
By their own stupid rules (ie there are lots of cases in Geneva) I should put myself in quarantine just from going to the shops!

Infections in canary Islands

Spain declared a nationwide state of emergency last night, with the exception of the Canary Islands.

Personally, the Brits are on their 2nd week of school half term and piling over to the Canaries and Greek islands. I really don't fancy going over after they've been.

Switzerland is pretty much as bad now.

Yes, people from EU + Schengen can travel to Spain. https://www.spain.info/en/discover-s...-travel-spain/

Weird detail: people can travel from the Canary Islands to Liechtenstein without 10 day quarantine. Sometimes they're together with CH, not this time.

I was about to ask if there's an airport in Liechtenstein!

Zürich Kloten


So, if you have residence on LE, you can fly to Zürich and then take the train home, no quarantine needed.
