All of Spain including the Canary Islands have been put on Germany’s ‘Risk List’ for travel.

From today the German Government has included all of Spain in its risk list for travel due to covid, putting the country on the lowest tier of its three alert levels due to the rebound in the incidence rate in the mainland and islands.

Currently, this does not pose any serious implications for German tourists who are already in Spain or the islands or have plans to travel here in the near future. 

The Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands are the two main destinations for German tourists which previously were not considered at risk due to having a low weekly incidence rate below 50 in 100,000 people, however, due to the incidence rate increasing, the islands are now considered at risk. 

For now, this change requires that German tourists take a test when returning to their country but there is no requirement to quarantine. 

Moreover, the German Governments decision to include Spain in its risk list is reflective of the current increase in incidence that has been registered across Spain in recent days. With the German Government acknowledging that it is closely following the evolution of the pandemic in the Balearic Islands.
