CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
Please read the current travel update from The States Of Guernsey.
The Civil Contingencies Authority (CCA) has announced the travel rules that will be in place from 1 July 2021. These are slightly different to what was announced previously and are laid out below.
If you are fully vaccinated and 14 days have passed since your second vaccination, there will be no isolation or testing requirements if you are arriving from the Common Travel Area. This means you will be in the “blue channel” travel category.
If you are not fully vaccinated or if you have had both doses of vaccination but 14 days have not passed since your second dose, then country and region categories will apply as normal. More info on categories can be found at: https://covid19.gov.gg/guidance/travel/countries.
Children under 18 are assessed as the same risk as their parent/guardian/carer unless they have their own vaccination status. More info on this can be found at: https://covid19.gov.gg/guidance/travel/july Please note that we do not offer self-isolation for this period.
The Common Travel Area (CTA) includes the United Kingdom, the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the Bailiwick of Jersey, the Isle of Man and the Republic of Ireland.
If travelling into the Bailiwick from anywhere outside the CTA, the current country category isolation and testing requirements apply. If you have been outside the CTA in the 14 days before you arrive in the Bailiwick then the country category applies regardless of your vaccination status.
It is important to note that Public Health will still apply overrides to country or region listings if it has any concerns. This CAN include countries/regions within the Common Travel Area.
These are the core rules that will be in place from 1 July 2021 to keep the Bailiwick safe and able to react quickly to COVID-19, but also enables free and unrestricted travel as much as is possible.
