Both Jersey and Guernsey developed systems to categorise passengers arriving into the Bailiwicks, which determine whether or not they need to isolate.


JERSEY

Everyone arriving into Jersey must complete an online travel form in the 48 hours before their trip.

  • Children: Those aged 11 to 17 will be required to be tested upon arrival and will need to isolate until their negative test result. Under 10s will not be required to complete a pre-departure registration form, undergo testing on arrival or be required to isolate.

  • Vaccinated passengers:​ If you have had both doses of the coronavirus vaccine at least two weeks before travelling, you will be tested on arrival but will not need to isolate while waiting for your result.

  • Non-vaccinated passengers: If you are not fully vaccinated, you will be tested on arrival and must isolate until your test returns a negative result. Results usually take around 8-12 hours.

  • England's international Restricted List: If you are coming from a country that is on England's international Restricted List, you must be tested on arrival, as well as days five and ten, and isolate for ten days. You can leave your isolation for up to two hours a day for fresh air and exercise, but must not meet anyone else or enter any indoor areas.

GUERNSEY

Everyone arriving into the Bailiwick must create a Travel Tracker account, entering your travel information before you arrive. You will not be able to enter that information more than 48 hours before your arrival.

  • From Monday 4 October 2021: All arrivals who have been only in the Common Travel Area (CTA) in the previous 10 days to use the ‘blue’ channel, regardless of vaccination status, meaning no PCR test or self-isolation requirement. Blue arrivals will be required to undergo self-administered LFT testing. Travel history period is shortened from 14 days to 10 days for arriving passengers.

  • From Wednesday 20 October 2021: It will no longer be a requirement for those travelling into the Bailiwick from the Common Travel Area as ‘blue’ arrivals to purchase and complete a course of lateral flow tests.
