Spain: Entry requirements from 23rd November 2020

Please read the information below, as these are legal requirements and failure to comply may result in penalties.

You should refer to the UK Government’s Travel Advice page or the Spanish Embassy in your country for further advice.

Testing and Screening

From 23 November, all passengers (including children) travelling to Spanish airports and ports from ‘risk’ countries (as determined by the European Centre for Disease Prevention & Control) will be required to present a negative PCR (swab) test taken within no more than 72 hours prior to arrival, in order to enter the country.

The UK is currently on the ‘risk’ countries list which is updated every 15 days. Passengers arriving from the UK, regardless of length of stay, are subject to this requirement.


You can provide this information on the Spain Travel Health website or downloadable app.

You will be issued a personal and non-transferable QR code which you must show (electronically or hardcopy) at airport health controls on arrival. Anyone who has not completed this form electronically via the Spain Travel Health website or app, may submit it in paper format prior to boarding.

On arrival, you will also:

Anyone who presents symptoms or fails to meet one of the above requirements will be required to undergo a test on arrival and will be obliged to observe the COVID-19 protocols in place as determined by the local authorities in Spain.

Fines may be issued to anyone who arrives in Spanish airports and ports from ‘risk’ countries without adequate evidence of a negative PCR (swab) test.

Travellers may also be contacted and required to undertake a PCR (swab) test at any point up to 48 hours after their arrival in Spain.


Canary Islands

From November 14th, until further notice, if you’re travelling to the Canary Islands and staying in tourist accommodation (this includes CLC World resorts), you have to:

These measures apply to all guests aged 6 years and over, unless they have proof of travel confirming their uninterrupted presence on the islands for the previous 15 days. For further information, refer to guidance from the Canarian tourist board or contact CLC World Member Services.


Movement within Spain

Inter-regional travel is permitted, as long as your point of origin and destination do not fall within a confined area where entry and exit restrictions are in place.

Transiting confined areas to reach your final destination is permitted, however you should be prepared to show evidence of your onward journey such as train or flight tickets to your final destination.

If travelling with people who are not from the same household, all passengers must wear a face mask covering the nose and mouth. Penalties may be imposed if you do not comply.

Introducing Lumley Castle – Your latest UK Club Resort

Lumley Castle’s elegant and luxurious accommodation is available from January 2021 and is ideal for a couple’s break away.  So don’t delay and book your Lumley Castle stay, today.



At Lumley Castle, you’ll have time just for you – whether that’s relaxing in the Library Bar taking in the sumptuous surroundings or strolling through the grounds. If you  like adventure, the Escape Room experience may be just the thing – especially if you have teenagers in tow – as you investigate a haunting and solve the mystery.

The Taste Durham board recognises Lumley Castle for the quality of their food and championing local produce. Enjoy light meals, snacks and Afternoon Tea in the Library Bar, a la carte dining in the Knights Restaurant, or perhaps even private dining in one of their exclusive dining rooms.

Lumley Castle Hotel collaborates with the historic Chester Le Street Golf Course offering luxury golf experiences for hotel guests, with morning tee times. A great way to start the day after your Full English breakfast.



Lumley Castle, surrounded by parklands overlooking the river Wear, rises majestically from the County Durham landscape. Transport yourself back to the age of chivalry in this 600+ year old castle, equipped with all the modern comforts you deserve. Within easy reach of both historic Durham and vibrant Newcastle, it is the perfect base from which to explore the north east of England.

If you enjoy hiking, the Durham Dales with Derwent Reservoir is only a 30 minutes’ drive and opens up a world of fresh air and glorious nature. Alternatively, head east and walk the Durham Heritage Coast, whose coastal path leads you through a mosaic of natural, historical and geological interest with dramatic views along the coastline.

For a dash of culture, you’re spoiled for choice. View the contemporary Angel of the North up-close, or head to the 13th century fortress of Barnard Castle. Along the river Wear from Lumley Castle is Finchale Priory while only 6 miles away is Washington Old Hall, the ancestral home of America’s first president George Washington.

Club La Costa announces discontinuation of new timeshare sales

After a particularly challenging year, several weeks ago we advised all CLC members, staff and other stakeholders of the planned closure of our timeshare sales operations. The decision was then taken to place those timeshare sales companies and affected companies including Club La Costa (UK) Plc, into a controlled administration process; as when trading entities become unviable for an extended period of time the Directors have specific responsibilities that cannot be avoided and this was advised to be the most appropriate course of action. The closure of Club La Costa’s timeshare sales companies has no impact whatsoever on CLC World’s members, Real Estate owners, or their resorts, all of which continue as usual.

Despite COVID and the extreme travel restrictions it brought – our dedicated teams have navigated around openings, temporary closures and re-openings and CLC World has still managed to deliver over 100,000 holidays for members and guests worldwide in 2020 and has even added additional Club Resorts into regions where member demand suddenly peaked due to “Staycations”. For over 35 years, CLC World has been developing mixed use resorts in the UK, Spain, Austria, Turkey and the United States and this process of development and expansion will continue for many years to come, as will CLC World’s steadfast management of those resorts.
