On 27th July 2020 The UK Government advised against all "non-essential" travel to Spain and a 14 day quarantine for anyone returning to the UK from Spain

As we understand it the UK Government advice is that - advice - and that there is nothing to stop you travelling if you wish to, however it is likely that your travel insurance is not valid so we recommend checking with your insurance provider regarding any impact to your policy.

If you do not live in the UK then please check with your respective Government advice and guidance

In October the Balearic Government (so including Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) issued a curfew between the hours of 22:00 to 06:00

 

Current rules when in Ibiza
- UK tourists will NOT need to quarantine on arrival in Ibiza
- Most restaurants, bars and shops are already open
- You will need to make reservations for restaurants in advance of your arrival
- The current social distancing requirements are to keep 1.5m distance at all times and must be observed at all times
- Face masks are obligatory on public transport and in public spaces where it is not possible to maintain social distancing of 1.5 metres

Please ensure you bring sufficient face masks for your trip as they may be in short supply on the island

The number of COVID-19 cases in Ibiza has been very low and not comparable to levels experienced in Madrid & Barcelona
