When travelling to the Bailiwick, whether arriving from a Category 1, 2, 3 or 4 country or region, you will need to create a Travel Tracker account BEFORE arrival in the Bailiwick. This includes travellers who have been given an exemption. The link to the Travel Tracker and associated information can be found here:

Private boat owners who are travelling to Alderney must also complete a ‘recreational vessel – booking form’ at least 48 hours prior to arrival. The form is available here:

Anyone aged 18 and over, and children aged between 12 and 17 who are travelling unaccompanied, must create their own account.

Children aged 17 and under who are travelling with an adult, should be included within their account.

If you are travelling as a family or group, children can only be registered on one adult’s account.

Once you have an account, you will be able to register your journey(s) and your self-administered test(s) on arrival. A journey cannot be registered until 2 calendar days before you are due to arrive in the Bailiwick.

As announced on 30th April, the Guernsey Civil Contingencies Authority intends to continue to reduce border restrictions and introduce procedures for testing and self-isolation for travellers from category 2 regions with effect from 14th May 2021.

The guidance below is intended to clarify how this will effect both visiting vessels and those boatowners based in the Bailiwick who have returned from a Category 2 region.

Please note that, regardless of your point of departure, if any crew member has visited a category 3 or 4 region within the last 14 days before arrival in the Bailiwick, the procedures and restrictions for the higher category will apply to all crew members on your vessel.  For the latest information regarding regional category classifications please visit
