Formentera unveils online portal and Covid travel test hotline

cartell 2021 infocovidThe president’s office of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce a new corner of the Consell de Formentera website dedicated to information on local testing options for travellers. “The island’s tourism sector brought it to our attention that many visitors and businesspeople lacked a source of information about Covid-19 testing for travellers on their way back to their countries and places of origin”, explained Ferrer, who is also Formentera’s tourism chief, before confiding, “It’s an information gap we were eager to fill.”

Included among the changes is a new sub-section in the Covid-19 section of www.cif.cat. “Infocovid: Testing for Travellers” not only highlights local establishments that have attested competence administering Covid-19 testing, it offers insight into a host of other topics like fees, services, appointment scheduling and more. To maximise the campaign’s reach, materials will also be translated into multiple languages on the Formentera Office of Tourism website.

A new information hotline at 871 556 619 gives callers answers to some of the most frequently asked questions from visitors and islanders preparing to start or end their holidays. Additional licensed test sites may also call if they wish to be added to the list.

Ferrer insisted that the hotline, which she described as a “one-stop info shop”, would both “enhance the service Formentera provides its visitors” and “act as a guardrail for considerations like quality and logistics”.
