Travelling to and from the Bailiwick

Through the Emergency Powers (Coronavirus) (General Provision) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) (No. 9) Regulations, 2020, the Civil Contingencies Authority has imposed a requirement on all persons to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival in the Bailiwick where they have left an infected area in the 14 days before their arrival. For the purposes of the Regulations, everywhere in the world, except the Isle of Man, is an infected area.

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.

If you are eligible for and opt into the Category 2 or Category 3 option, or have an exemption or variation, your period of self-isolation can be shortened:

-Depending on where you have spent time in the 7 days prior to your arrival in the Bailiwick, you may be eligible for the Category 2 or Category 3 options. The Travel Tracker will inform you if you are eligible for either of the options.

-You must make a separate application for an exemption or variation (for business, critical worker, medical or compassionate travel) to the relevant States of Guernsey agency. The application must be approved before it can take effect. 

To avoid unnecessary delays to your journey, you should (where possible) enter your travel information on the Travel Tracker before you arrive in the Bailiwick. You will not be able to enter that information more than 2 calendar days before your arrival.

In addition, travellers arriving in the Bailiwick must read thoroughly and complete the legal acknowledgement form to be handed in on arrival which will be given to you by carriers at check-in.
