IBIZA TRAVEL GUIDE

Traveling to Ibiza from the UK next Summer
IT’S STARTING TO LOOK A LOT LESS CONFUSING AND STRESSFUL!
For our UK guests you may have seen in the news recently that the government is finally scrapping the dreaded traffic light system! From the 4th October 2021 there will be no green and amber listed countries, just a single red list of countries and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world, Ibiza currently sitting in the latter!
So what do you need to do exactly in order to travel to and from Ibiza as of the 4th October? Well simply you need:
☑️ Passenger locator forms
☑️ Test two days after you get home
Not yet fully vaccinated?
☑️ Passenger locator forms
☑️ Test before you leave the UK
☑️ Test before you fly home from Ibiza
☑️ Test two days and eight days after you get home
☑️ Quarantine for ten days or five if part of the ‘test to release’ scheme
Here’s our Ibiza travel guide to what you need to do in order to holiday with us on the White Isle right now. Please note this may change between now and the start of next summer and we will continue to keep this page updated with the latest travel restrictions.
STEP 1: BEFORE YOU LEAVE
Fill in a Spanish Passenger Locator Form
Whether you are vaccinated fully or not everyone needs to complete a Spanish Passenger Locator Form. The form is free and must be completed within 48 hours before your flight. When you complete it you'll be emailed a QR code.
Book tests if you're fully vaccinated
If you are fully vaccinated (i.e. had both injections of any covid vaccine) you need to book a lateral flow test to take 2 days after you get home. Providers for these tests can be found here.
You will be asked to show your proof of full vaccination UK side before you board the plane. You can do this with a paper certificate or the NHS app (App Store | Google Play Store) so download and sign up before you go.
Book tests if you're not fully vaccinated
If you have not been fully vaccinated you will need to book a PCR test for both 2 days and also 8 days after you get home. We would also advise registering for the government 'test to release' scheme which you can use to end your quarantine early.
On top of booking your tests for when you get home you will also need one to board the plane. This can be a PCR or Rapid Antigen test taken within 72 hours before you fly. You will be asked to show proof of a negative test result UK side before you can fly.
STEP 2: ARRIVING IN IBIZA
Scan your locator form
At passport control you will be asked to scan your completed Spanish Passenger Locator Form QR code from your email. (make sure your phone is charged!)
You do not need to quarantine on arrival in Ibiza
STEP 3: BEFORE YOU FLY HOME
When you're in Ibiza there are a few extra things you need to sort before you can return home.
Fill in a UK Passenger Locator Form
Before you catch your flight you'll need to complete a UK Passenger Locator Form. The form is free and must be completed within 48 hours before your flight. The form requires the booking reference of your Day 2 test.
When you complete it you'll be emailed a PDF and you will have the option of either adding it to your online boarding pass or presenting it on check-in.
Get a negative antigen test result if you are not vaccinated
Those who are not fully vaccinated will need to show a negative test result taken within 3 days before you fly home. These tests typically cost between €30 and €40 and the results sent to your email. More information on how you can get your antigen test will be confirmed closer to our 2022 open date.
STEP 4: FLYING BACK TO THE UK
Show your locator form and test result
At the airport in Ibiza you will be asked to show your completed UK Passenger Locator form at the boarding gate along with your negative test result or proof of vaccination. Without these you won't be able to board the flight.
STEP 5: FULLY VACCINATED & BACK IN THE UK
Take your lateral flow test 2 days after you get back
Upon arriving home just take your Day 2 lateral flow test which you have already arranged before your holiday.
Being fully vaccinated you are not required to quarantine when you get home unless your test result comes back positive or the NHS Track & Trace app informs you that you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive.
STEP 5: NOT FULLY VACCINATED & BACK IN THE UK
Quarantine at home for 10 days
Flying into the UK from an amber listed country means that you are required to quarantine for 10 days if you are not yet fully vaccinated.
Take your PCR test 2 days and 8 days after you get back
Upon arriving home take your day 2 and day 8 PCR tests which you already arranged before your holiday.
Test to release scheme
You may be able to end quarantine early on day 5 if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme.
