Travelling to and from the Bailiwick

The Bailiwick of Guernsey is currently in lockdown. For more information on what this means, please go to: https://covid19.gov.gg/guidance/business/lockdownupdate

Only essential travel into the Bailiwick should take place.

For those that are ordinarily resident in the Bailiwick, this means the only travel permitted is:

  • for a compassionate purpose, including fulfilling a legal obligation,
  • to receive medical treatment,
  • to undertake essential business that cannot be undertaken remotely,
  • to attend school, university or other further education or
  • to return home if they are currently outside the Bailiwick and left on or before 12th January 2021.

For those that are not ordinarily resident in the Bailiwick, this means the only travel permitted is:

  • for a compassionate purpose, including fulfilling a legal obligation,
  • to become a new resident, or
  • as a critical worker. 

You will need to have an approved Travel Permit before you travel. We therefore advise that you don't book your travel before this has been received. Each person travelling will need to make an application. Please submit your application at least 7 working days before you plan to travel wherever possible. 

Everyone arriving into the Bailiwick must create a Travel Tracker account, entering your travel information before you arrive. You will not be able to enter that information more than 2 calendar days before your arrival. For more information please go to: https://covid19.gov.gg/guidance/travel/traveltracker

Those travelling to Alderney and Sark from Guernsey also need to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival - read more here

You must not leave your place of self-isolation during the period that you are required to self-isolate. This is a legal requirement and failure to comply is a criminal offence.
