Business Travel

As of Friday 23 April 2021, business tunnels have been reinstated.

This page was last updated on 24 April at 14.30hrs.

Guernsey’s economy will benefit from special measures permitting on-island business meetings to be held, subject to strict Public Health guidance and legal requirements, in situations where the physical presence of off-island representatives is necessary.

Notification must be given to Critical Travel either by emailing critical.travel@gov.gg by completing the designated online form which can be found on the gov.gg website www.gov.gg/covid19businesstunnel, or by telephoning 01481 747578 and speaking to a member of the team.

Travel in a business tunnel is strictly limited to same day return travel only.

From Friday 23 April 2021, business tunnel travel can be facilitated without the need for mandatory self-isolation provided it is carried out in a controlled environment.

  • Travel to and from the airport hangars or terminal building must not be on public transport.
  • Social distancing of one metre must be maintained at all times.
  • Contacts must be recorded for tracing purposes and should be minimised.
  • Passengers must wear facemasks as they pass through the airport and in the transport to their meeting location.
  • Business meetings must be held in well ventilated offices and not in public places such as restaurants or bars.

It is for those applying for business tunnel travel to organise an appropriate venue for their meeting. 

IMPORTANT: All businesses looking to benefit from the business tunnels initiative will need to notify the States of Guernsey providing the relevant information for review to ensure that all legal requirements for use of the business tunnels are met against a set of criteria, similar to the critical workers exemption programme. Further details on the form and criteria can be found below.
