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 specified information and satisfactory proof of their 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 their self-isolation period.

Travellers are required to provide this information using the Travel Tracker. This applies to all travellers. More information can be found here: traveltracker.gov.gg.

In order to be eligible for the Blue arrival channel into the Bailiwick of Guernsey (no isolation), an arriving individual will be required to provide official proof of vaccination issued by the relevant public health authority, once they have fully completed a full COVID-19 vaccine course plus 14 days since completion. 

Other forms of evidence such as vaccination appointment cards and GP letters will not be accepted at this time, however, this will be kept under review. Further details about COVID Status Certificates can be found here: COVID Status Certificates (Vaccine Passports) | States of Guernsey - COVID-19 (gov.gg)
