Are the Balearic Islands on the green list?

The Balearics are no longer on the green list.

The Spanish Islands were added to the UK’s green list on June 30, meaning the British could visit the islands without having to quarantine themselves afterwards.

However, they have since been moved to the Amber List after a spike in cases.

Currently, Britons who have received two doses of the vaccine, the second at least 14 days before travel, can skip the 10-day quarantine if returning from Amber countries.

However, countries on the Amber List Plus would not be included in this list.

This means that even fully vaccinated Britons still have to quarantine themselves for 10 days at home upon returning from the countries on the list.

They must also have a pre-arrival Covid test and a completed passenger locator form, as well as two pre-booked tests on the second and eighth day.


The face covering remains compulsory for anyone over six years old on all public transport in Spain and in many other indoor and outdoor public spaces.

The public is advised to always wear a face mask and to be prepared to wear it when traveling in high traffic areas.

The new, updated rules come as all four islands have seen a significant increase in the beta variant, which experts say is more transmissible.

Menorca and Ibiza

Authorities in Ibiza and Mallorca are cracking down on social gatherings, banning all events involving mixing between households.

Restaurants, bars and cafes must close at 1 a.m., and the number of diners per table will drop from six to four indoors and from 12 to eight outdoors.

The beaches will also be closed to the public at 10 p.m. each evening.

Can I go on vacation to the Balearic Islands?

Spain introduced new rules earlier this month, which means all arrivals must be fully vaccinated or have a negative Covid test.

This is applied throughout Spain, including the Balearic Islands.

Travel restrictions are also in place on the islands, including a curfew from midnight to 6 a.m., when only eight people can meet outdoors or six indoors.
