Only essential travel into the Bailiwick can take place. Those planning on travelling will need to apply for an Essential Travel Permit. For more information please go to:

There are still self-isolation requirements in place for those arriving into the Bailiwick which are detailed below. 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.

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. More information is available at:

From 00:01 on Wednesday 20th January the Civil Contingencies Authority has temporarily suspended the country and region categorisations. All arrivals into the Bailiwick will be classified as ‘Category 4’. For more information read the media release.

Everyone arriving from Category 4 regions and countries is now required to self-isolate until they have received a negative result from a Day 1 and a Day 13 test. If you decline a Day 1 or a Day 13 test, you will have to self-isolate for 21 days. Those who choose to self-isolate with someone who has travelled to the Bailiwick will also need to adhere to the same requirement. More information is available below.

Children under 12 will continue to only need a negative test on day 13.

Phase 5c came into effect on Wednesday 28 October. Everyone arriving into the Bailiwick, including private vessels and aircraft, will need to register their journey on the Travel Tracker.
