A 'traffic light' system has launched in Jersey to highlight the risk of travelling to certain destinations.

It will categorise countries into red, amber and green according to the risk of contracting Covid-19.

The information page on the Government of Jersey website will also include passenger requirements for each specific location.

  • For destinations categorised as red, inbound passengers must take a test on arrival into Jersey and self isolate for 14 days.

  • For destinations categorised as amber, inbound passengers must take a test on arrival into Jersey and self isolate until day five, when they will have to take another test. If this returns a negative result, they will be able to leave self-isolation.

  • For destinations categorised as green, inbound passengers must take a test on arrival into Jersey but will not be required to self isolate.

The health and wellbeing of Islanders is our top priority and all arriving passengers must either undergo a test or self-isolate. Some countries have higher rates of Covid than others and so some passengers will be required to self-isolate regardless of their test result. These countries will be kept under regular review.
