The good news is that visitors are being welcomed to Jersey once again. The feedback we received from those who travelled before the recent UK lockdown was enormously positive and, as islands, both Jersey and Guernsey have been able to respond to Covid-19 more speedily and effectively than the mainland, with Jersey very quickly able to welcome visitors back to the island safely.

If you’ve been fully vaccinated in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Guernsey or Isle of Man you’ll need a test on arrival but won’t need to isolate while you wait for the result. Travellers from England can find out about demonstrating your vaccination status here, travellers from Wales can find information here, travellers from Scotland can find information here, and travellers from Northern Ireland can find information here.

Before travelling to Jersey you are required to complete the online form here. This should be completed no more than 48 hours in advance and each passenger must complete their own form individually (a parent or a legal guardian must complete it on behalf of children aged 11 to 15).

In common with everywhere at the moment, there is no guarantee that your travel and holiday will be free from any disruption, and it is a good idea before you travel to get in touch with your insurers to ascertain how you are covered for various eventualities.

Track & Trace is fully operational in the Channel Islands as it is on the mainland, and you may be required to submit your contact details at some venues or sites you may wish to visit. If there is cause for you to be contacted, please see the following information which tells you what your options would be under these circumstances.

Whilst any form of travel during a pandemic is not without risk, we are dedicated to keeping our much-valued clients fully aware and as up-to-date as possible. We are available at all times for any queries you may have, and for anything which we cannot answer ourselves, we know where to direct you in order to ensure that you are as informed as you can be, before, during and after your break.

We would encourage all visitors to Jersey to regularly visit the Jersey Government website, make sure that you are comfortable with the guidance in place, follow the latest advice from the World Health Organisation and don’t hesitate to seek further advice for anything you are unsure of or which you would like clarification of.

For any specific advice please call the Jersey Coronavirus helpline (freephone)
