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!
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 on arrival. Fully vaccinated travellers into the Bailiwick will be provided with lateral flow tests on arrival, due to a supply chain issue this has been delayed and is expected to start later this week (w/c 2 August). Further detail will be provided soon.
Those traveling from Jersey are currently required to provide a negative PCR or observed lateral flow test on arrival – read more.
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.
We also strongly recommend that those who are not local residents 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.
Travel update 2 August 2021
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’.
