This new measure includes all travel, by any means (including privately owned or chartered vessels) and includes travel between the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey, but not within the Bailiwick of Guernsey (between Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm). An exemption list for 'critical roles' travel (for reasons that are critical to the running of the Island) is detailed below.
Any person arriving in the Bailiwick from anywhere in the world (including, for the avoidance of doubt, Jersey and the United Kingdom) will be required to provide information (as specified in the Schedule) and satisfactory proof of his or her identity to any customs officer, police officer or other authorised person who requests the information. This information is required in order to enable the Medical Officer of Health to contact that person without delay during the 14-day period of self-isolation.
Where a person fails to comply with the requirement above, including where he or she is reasonably suspected to have provided false or misleading information or documents in connection with that requirement, that person may be detained until he or she complies with the requirement and any other screening requirements that the Medical Officer of Health may impose.
Guidance for Critical Travel, Compassionate Travel and Medical Travel has now been released and can be downloaded from this page.
In order to have Critical Worker Travel approved, individuals, or their employer, must contact the determining officers of the States of Guernsey set out above. Applications can be made, during office hours, either directly to these officers or through the Population Management Office via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01481 715790.
