I’ll make a point if reporting how they perform after we get home.
Just for reference having made the trip a number of times I actually go to a clinic to get my tests because there is a small chance that you can if not careful get a bad test when taking them yourself which can lead to delays .This is more crucial for the fit to fly parts .
The down side its more expensive PCR where i go is £150 the upside a health care professional is taking your test and sending it to the lab 24 hour later you get an email
I also opt for the PCR test when going from here to UK that way you get a recognized fit to fly certificate so no problems bordering or entering \UK Have been cases here on the Island already of Antagin tests being faked be careful do not spoil the ship for a hapeth of tar as they say
PCR test in Alcudia from Dr Mallorca 75 Euro emailed results in 24 hours

Do you now recommend Dr Mallorca rather than Muro Hospital for PCR?

I have used Dr Mallorca in Alcudia several times now and it is a very efficient service, the results always come through within 24 hours and it is very easy and quick from PP.

We still plan to come out next week (against UK Government advice but fully vaccinated) but the logistics with quarantine and testing etc. are a nightmare!!

I only hope the the PP bars, hotels, restaurants and the dependent economy can survive yet another setback
Not sure where MDB get their information from but the daily figure for the island is more like 38,000. Also, it’s probable that Mallorca is ahead of UK in giving the second dose of vaccine.

Sorry Sunnyboy, and it’s not a competition, but over 51% of the uk population have received their second vaccine but according to MDB this is under 20% for Mallorca.

We all want the Balearics and Spain as a whole to get the green ticket and get the Tourist € back into the economy

Just wondering from the forum members that have travelled over the last few days - which terminal are they using at Palma for us from the U.K.- are there any significant queues for passport checks and QR check for the locator forms? Coming out on Tuesday - quick change of plan yesterday as BA cancelled our outbound flight for next Sunday. Now busy getting ready to come away.

We also would be grateful for any information regarding what the procedures
are for coming out to Pollensa at the moment. Which forms you need to complete and what type of test you need to fly home.

All information will be on the airline website you have booked with - usually with links.
But simply - locator forms into Spain and into U.K. As to testing this is also on the airline or U.K. govt website.

Rules and regulations are changing frequently, so what is needed now might be different in a week or months time. If i were travelling i would wait until closer to my dates to be sure.

I agree! Just completed all the paperwork then discovered had to download to Airline website before printing boarding pass out - seems more difficult this year! Roll on Tuesday!
