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.

Day return inter-island flights
Responding to the recent ‘Business Tunnels’ initiative, Blue Islands has announced the restart of its inter-island services to support businesses needing to travel between the islands.
Blue Islands will initially operate a day return service on Thursdays from 6 August for day return business travel enabled by the scheme. With additional frequencies being added as demand requires.
There are a number of requirements surrounding the Business Tunnels. Travellers will have to notify the States of Guernsey at least seven days prior to travel using the dedicated Business Tunnels Form. For entry into Jersey, a pre-departure registration form must be completed before your you arrive. Further details can be found below.
Commenting on the limited resumption of inter-island flights, Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said, “We are delighted to be back in the skies connecting Jersey and Guernsey. This initial programme is clearly just a small step back to a regular schedule. However, we are very happy to support the Guernsey Business Tunnel initiative and the consequent economic benefits it should bring to both economies. And we stand ready to resume serving our regular inter-island operations from September. We also welcome the new arrival protocols established by the Government of Jersey earlier this month. It is making a big difference in safely reopening the visitor economy.”
The Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport & Culture, Senator Lyndon Farnham, said, “I would like to thank Blue Islands for their proactive approach to restoring this route. The rigorous testing programme at Jersey’s ports has been a key factor in making this possible and I look forward to the resumption of inter-island links.”
Matt Thomas, Group CEO for Ports of Jersey added, “We are very pleased to see the shortest but one of our most travelled routes back in the schedule. Blue Islands will increase the frequencies as soon as conditions allow, but for now it's great to see Guernsey back on our departure boards."
Deputy Charles Parkinson, President of the Committee for Economic Development commented, "The Committee is pleased to see Blue Islands take the opportunity afforded by the States to operate Air Tunnels between the islands, enabling travel subject of course to the appropriate controls being in place. The launch of this new service enables our local businesses to maintain their business relationships in Jersey."
