Discover that Island Feeling!

Welcome to the Islands of Guernsey.

We know many of you love our Islands and have been looking forward to returning. We have been looking forward to seeing you! 

Current Travel requirements

Currently, if you are travelling from the Common Travel Area (UK, the Isle of Man and the Republic of Ireland) and have had both doses of your vaccine, with the second dose being at least 14 days prior to travel, you will be able to arrive with no self-isolation requirements. Fully vaccinated travellers into the Bailiwick will be charged £25 for a pack of five lateral flow tests when they complete the Travel Tracker.

From Monday 16th August any fully vaccinated adult who had their vaccination administered in the Common Travel Area (Guernsey, Jersey, Isle of Man, UK or Republic of Ireland), EU or EFTA (Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland), will be classified as Category 2 if they have travelled anywhere outside of the Common Travel Area in the previous 14 days– as long as they have not spent any time in a country on the UK’s ‘red list’.

Travel update 21 September 2021

From this Thursday (23 Sept) visitors providing proof they have received a full course of an approved Covid-19 vaccine (AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, Jannsen), regardless of where they received their vaccine doses, will have reduced restrictions on arrival into the Bailiwick.

From Monday 4 October, there will be significant changes to the rules for travel to the Bailiwick.

All travel from the Common Travel Area (UK, Isle of Man and the Republic of Ireland), regardless of vaccination status will be treated as a ‘blue’ arrival. These travellers will need to purchase and complete a course of lateral flow tests (£25 for a pack of five), when they complete the Travel Tracker but there will be no other restrictions for these travellers. 

The highest level of restrictions to arrivals will be those who are coming directly from countries on the UK’s red-list without passing through the UK.  They will need to carry out a self-swab PCR test on arrival and self-isolate until they take a second PCR test on Day 9 and receive a negative result. 

For all other countries, fully vaccinated non-CTA arrivals will only be required to take a self-swab PCR test on arrival but will not be required to self-isolate. Unvaccinated non-CTA arrivals will need to take a self-swab PCR test on arrival, and self-isolate until a negative results of a second PCR test on Day 8.

We have produced a handy guide to help you navigate through our most recent travel changes, so please take a look before booking.

In under an hour you could feel free in the Islands of Guernsey. It’s time to unpause your life!

We also strongly recommend that visitors arrange to take a pre-travel test (either PCR or lateral flow). Read more here.

If you have not had both your vaccines, or you are travelling via the UK to Guernsey from other destinations around the world, you will have to continue to follow the Categories system we have in place. See which category you are under here.

Before you travel please fill out your Travel Tracker. This can be completed from 48 hours prior to travel. You must also have proof of vaccination. We would recommend downloading the NHS app prior to arriving and also strongly advise people bring the hard copy of their vaccination certificate as well.
