We arrived from the UK last weekend. We were tested to be sure we did not have the virus as we didn't want to bring it to the island. We completed the forms before we left and had the QR code on our phones. We were concerned about seating on the plane but we had the row to ourselves which was a relief and everyone wore masks throughout. Upon arrival the process was normal up to passport control but once through here you then had to either present your QR code or fill in the form. From there we were guided through towards the carousels via a couple of ladies who took our temperature. Then everything was as normal. Masks are obligatory  throughout the airport and on any form of public transport.

During your stay if you go into a shop you will need to wear your mask and the shops provide disposable gloves which must be worn too.

Make sure you have a mask with you at all times just in case you are stopped by the police! Not sure how likely this will be.

This all may seem like it could spoil a holiday but apart from the shops you are able to walk around without a mask, go to the beach, have a meal/drink out and just enjoy the beautiful weather! 

Hope this has helped?

Hi. Lanzarote itself is safer than the UK,  Of course, entertainment, hospitality industry, restaurants, bars are not much open. Everyone wears a mask everywhere and you always have to have one on you.  Lanzarote takes safety from covid very seriously.  More than the UK does!

Hi, we came in on 14th July, no problems at airport as long as the necessary health clearance forms are completed. Temperature check done at airport. Face covering essential in taxis or public transport. Some bars and restaurants are already open, most of the others plan to open on 1st August.
