Jersey to ease testing and quarantine rules for fully vaccinated
09 Jul 2021by James Chapple
Jersey will ease its testing and quarantine rules for fully vaccinated arrivals next week, Visit Jersey has confirmed.
From next Tuesday (13 July), the island will abandon its traffic light system and transition to a testing and isolation policy based on vaccination status.
There will be no isolation on arrival requirement for fully vaccinated arrivals, although they will be tested on arrival.
Those not yet fully vaccinated will be required to take a free PCR test on arrival and then isolate until they get a get a same-day result.
The island’s new safer travel policy will apply from 13 July.
- Countries and regions will no longer be assessed based on a green, amber and red traffic light system; testing and isolation requirements will be based on passenger vaccination status
- Fully vaccinated arrivals will only be required to undergo one test on arrival and will not be required to isolate
- Arrivals who are not fully vaccinated will be tested on arrival and on day eight, and will need to isolate until their first negative test result (day zero)
- Children aged 11-17 will be required to be tested on arrival and on day eight, and will need to isolate until their first negative test result (day zero)
- Children aged 10 and under will not be required to complete a pre-departure registration form, undergo testing on arrival or be required to isolate
- Enhanced testing and isolation will remain in place for the very small number of passengers who have visited very high-risk countries (those subject to the UK travel ban) in the 10 days prior to arrival, regardless of their vaccination status
- All passengers travelling to Jersey aged 11 years and over will still be required to complete a pre-departure registration form 48 hours before travelling
