We are in the middle of the second wave. Many European countries have therefore decided to introduce compulsory testing in order to minimize the risk of "imported" Covid-19 infections. This now also includes Spain: From November 23rd, travelers from risk areas must present a negative PCR test result. According to the wording of the regulation, other test procedures are not permitted.

And this is exactly where opinions differ. Because shortly before the decision of the Spanish central government, the Canary Islands also introduced compulsory testing. This should apply from November 14th. And it is broader than the government regulation, because the Canarian solution also allows the use of rapid corona tests. In anticipation of this regulation, tour operators such as TUI or FTI would offer their customers quick tests, such as Reisevor9.de reported. This handling will probably be discontinued from November 23rd, at the latest by then travel agencies should advise Canary Islands holidaymakers to use the PCR test.
