As of 14th March, the Royal Decree declaring a State of Alarm across Spain has come into affect.
On Lanzarote you are not able to go outside unless it is for a necessary reason. Such as going to work, seek medical assistance, buy food, medicine or essential items or to take care of people who are dependent on you. Taking care of financial or insurance matters, or walking a dog briefly, is acceptable.

Only shops selling food, pharmacies, cigarettes, IT equipment and other essential supplies are open.

All bars and restaurants are closed, and in public you are required to maintain a distance of 1 metre from other people.

Fines of €500 to €2000 can be given to people found outside without good reason.

Spanish Citizens are able to return to Spain, otherwise leisure travel to Lanzarote and other parts of Spain is not advised.

If you are an LGBT+ traveller or resident and completely stuck, use the contact us form and we will put you in touch with someone who can help or advise.
