German second home owners will be allowed to travel to the island from Monday as part of a test scheme as the Balearic tourist industry starts to re-open.

The move was announced this morning by the Balearic President, Francina Armengol, who said that 10,000 German tourists would start to arrive from next week. In the case of the tourists they will be spending a minimum of five days in island hotels and apartment complexes.

Armengol said that Germany and the Balearics had a similar level of the coronavirus with the number of cases dropping substantially in the last few weeks.

German holiday home owners had asked the Balearic government for permission to travel to the island two months ago but their appeal was rejected on health and safety grounds.

Listen to you guys, jets and yachts! I own a bike and a dog AND I also have residency here. Which means I would be allowed to re-enter Spain, if I had left. If you’ve not got residency then you will probably be turned back. If you were allowed in then a 14 day quarantine applies.

I own a property in Mallorca so I should be allowed to go to it I pay a Spanish mortgage so if I can’t go to it I’ll stop paying and that will be another problem for the Spanish economy

Re.: Balearics pilot tourisme plan

We own a yacht , moored at the RCNP (Real Club Nautico Palma). We would stay on our boat. Is that also considered as a second home ? We fly Eurowings from Dusseldorf, but have Belgian passports. Could we fly over next week without expecting problems on arrival in Palma ???
