Please note the following definitions/information in relation to the below FAQs:

  • “Fully vaccinated” – this is an individual who has received a full course of an approved vaccine (AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen) and 14 days have passed since their last dose.
  • “Common Travel Area” – referred to as the ‘CTA’ for short, this is Guernsey, Jersey, Isle of Man, UK or Republic of Ireland. 
  • “Blue channel traveller” – this is a term used on the Travel Tracker system that identifies travellers arriving in the Bailiwick from the CTA. All travellers from the CTA regardless of vaccination status will no longer need to test or isolate.

A test should be taken when arriving home / at your place of accommodation, and then one to be taken every other day until the pack is finished. Wherever possible the test should be done first thing in the morning. More detailed information on the LFT packs is available here.
  • “10-day travel history” – put simply, this refers to where you have been in the 10 days prior to your travel into the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
