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.
