Temporary travel measures for Jersey arrivals to end on Monday 23 August

The Civil Contingencies Authority has agreed that temporary rules putting additional pre-travel testing requirements on arrivals from Jersey into the Bailiwick of Guernsey will not be required from Monday 23 August.

20 August 2021

Jersey arrivals will now need to observe the same travel requirements for other travellers from the Common Travel Area.  This means those who arrive with a recognised proof of vaccination (as described at will be treated as ‘blue channel’ travellers.  This means they will not need to self-isolate when they arrive but they will be required to complete a course of five Lateral Flow Tests.

Separately, the CCA has also agreed that from Monday 23 August it will no longer consider transit through Southampton Airport, Portsmouth and Poole ports as exceptions to the wider travel rules.  These three ports were treated as special cases when there were lower levels of travel and few international journeys coming through these ports.  Given that there are now fewer restrictions for travel generally, it is no longer necessary or appropriate to treat these ports differently from any other port.
