Rapid test stations are currently being set up at Palma de Mallorca Airport for passengers arriving from abroad who do not have a PCR test. However, if you come to Spain without a negative PCR result, you will face hefty fines, at least 3.000 euros.

According to the regional government of the Balearic Islands, people who think they have to disregard the submission requirement must undergo a rapid antigen test. However, participation does not exempt you from being fined. If the antigen result is positive, a secretion takes place. A PCR test is then carried out for verification.

The Canaries also originally recognized antigen testing. The regional government has now been called back by the central government. Madrid made it clear that when entering the entire territory, including the Canary Islands, submission of a negative PCR result is mandatory. Otherwise horrific penalties are imminent. Antigen results are not accepted. This leads the testing strategies, among other things Fti and Tui for their customers, not only ad absurdum, but makes them completely worthless in practice, since these are not recognized as a substitute for PCR testing. Originally that would have worked out very well, but the central government overturned the Canary Islands plan.
