Safer Travel Policy Suspended from Monday

Feb 04, 2022

From 00.01 on Monday 7 February, all the current requirements under Jersey’s Safer Travel policy will be suspended, with a return to unrestricted, pre-pandemic inbound travel arrangements, including:

  • removal of all testing and isolation requirements for all arriving passengers
  • removal of the requirement to complete a pre-departure travel form before arriving in Jersey for all passengers

This change is one of a number of measures announced by Competent Authority Ministers relating to the de-escalation of Jersey’s COVID-19 measures. The changes follow advice from Public Health in consultation with the Scientific and Technical Advisory Cell (STAC).

People travelling outbound from Jersey should continue to check the travel requirements of the country they are travelling to. If required, Islanders can access their COVID Status Certificate and QR codes demonstrating their vaccination status through the portal on If Islanders are under the age of 16 or unable to access the portal, they should ring the Coronavirus Helpline.

Deputy Chief Minister, Senator Lyndon Farnham, said: “Ministers have agreed to suspend all border restrictions from Monday 7 February, which means that people arriving into Jersey no longer need to complete pre-departure forms or be tested on arrival.

“This decision aligns with the de-escalation of COVID-19 measures and is a big move in the right direction as we begin to live with COVID-19. The suspension of measures is in line with the latest advice from STAC and our Public Health officials and is proportionate to the much lower levels of risk in Jersey.

“I know many families have travel plans booked for over the half-term break and will immediately benefit from this suspension. Additionally, it will make it much easier for those students returning home from university.

“I would like to thank all of the staff who worked so hard over the past two years to design, manage and operate our border policies and testing; our Safer Travel Policy received international recognition and was only possible thanks to the commitment from staff and cooperation from Islanders.”
