Jersey welcomes the vaccinated

By | Category: Travel destinations

From today – 13 July, Jersey has updated its Safer Travel Policy meaning that those who have received their full course of vaccine jabs can travel more easily to and from the island.

Jersey will now allow fully vaccinated arrivals to travel to the island without requiring isolation, as well as no quarantine regulations in place when returning home. Those not fully vaccinated will only be required to take a free PCR test on arrival.

After taking the test, visitors will have to isolate until the results come through but that is very likely to be the same day unless you travel on one of the later flights in which case you should know pretty much first thing in the morning.

After that you can explore the island at your leisure and with no other restrictions or any requirement to take any tests again. At least in Jersey.

Until we know the rules on returning to the home nations, there may still be testing required.   

In addition the traffic light system of countries will cease and all requirements to test and isolate will be solely based on whether you have been fully vaccinated or not.

For those staying on the island longer than seven days, those who haven’t been fully vaccinated will need to take another test on day eight.

All passengers travelling to Jersey aged 11 years and over will still be required to complete a pre-departure registration form 48 hours before travelling.

Children aged 10 and under will not be required to complete the pre-departure registration form nor undergo testing on arrival or be required to isolate.

If you have visited one of the UK’s red list countries in the fortnight before travelling to Jersey then you should expected tighter testing restrictions so check with the tourist or health board first before booking.

Getting to any of the Channel Islands now should be a lot easier for most of us than it has been in the last few months.
