In accordance with the latest advice from the States of Guernsey and Government of Jersey if you are flying to Guernsey or Jersey, please read the following pre-departure information.
Regions within the UK are now categorised into three bands (Green, Amber, Red) with different testing and isolation requirements when arriving into Jersey. This is part of the Jersey Government’s Safer Travel Policy. For any arrivals from the Green category, the requirement remains a free test on arrival at Jersey Airport. However, passengers from Green areas are now also required to self-isolate at their home, hotel or holiday accommodation until the first test result is available. The aim is to process the first test in around 6 to 12 hours, although this is not guaranteed and could sometimes take longer.
The three-band system also applies to countries and regions outside of the UK. An updated list by region can be found here: countries and regions are risk assessed.
Passengers are required to disclose their travel history for the 14 days prior to arrival in Jersey, including country of departure, and any other countries or regions visited or will have visited in this 14-day period.
Everyone planning to travel to Jersey is required to complete an online registration form within 48 hours before departure.
If using same day return business travel enabled by the Business Tunnels scheme you are required to notify the States of Guernsey at least seven days prior to travel.
Notification must be given to the States of Guernsey Population Management Office by:

Blue Islands invites business community to express interest in direct Jersey-Guernsey-Luxembourg route
Blue Islands has developed a survey to appraise the appetite within the Channel Island business community for a direct service to Luxembourg, with initial input from Aztec and PWC, both of which have regular requirements for travel to this key business location.
Unlike other European destinations that are easily accessible through a hub airport such as Southampton, travel from the Channel Islands to Luxembourg often involves costly airport transfers and long travel times including overnight stopovers in the UK. With this in mind, the locally-owned airline is currently assessing the viability of a twice weekly direct service designed to provide a convenient and cost-effective travel option. The proposed service would depart Jersey mid-morning and route to Luxembourg via Guernsey, with a flight time of 1hr40 from Guernsey.
Tom Barrasin, Blue Islands Chief Commercial Officer commented:
Thanks to discussions and feedback from multiple corporate service users, Blue Islands has an initial understanding of the corporate community travel requirements to Luxembourg from the Islands. Now we are reaching out to the broader business community to get more granular feedback on beliefs and opinions around the route usage, schedule, seasonality, current travel experience and other service requirements to see if this could be a viable, sustainable route. At Blue Islands, we continually seek new route opportunities to better serve the Channel Islands. We would like to encourage corporates and business travellers to complete the survey, so that we might learn more about our customers and shape the best service solutions to meet their needs and ultimately determine if that service can be delivered in a commercially viable way.
Rob Jones, Aztec Director added
Aztec welcomes Blue Islands’ initiative to ascertain the potential demand for direct flights to Luxembourg from the Channel Islands. Anecdotally we understand there is a requirement for this service, therefore we urge all potential users to complete the survey and provide Blue Islands with the information they need to appraise the new route fully.
The survey will be open until Friday 31 August...
