The Jersey government has updated its travel classifications in accordance with the UK for some countries.
The UK announced yesterday (June 26) that popular tourist destinations will be added to its green travel list. These include Malta, the Balearic Islands, several Caribbean islands and Madeira, which will be good news for a large part of the Madeiran community of Jersey.
The Jersey government has now followed suit by issuing the following travel rules alongside the UK Joint Biosecurity Center.
People arriving with a green status must undergo a PCR test on arrival (day 0) and on day 8. You must then self-isolate until you receive a negative result from your test on day 0. However, if you have been fully vaccinated in the Kingdom – United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Guernsey or Isle of Man, you will need to be tested on arrival, but you will not need to isolate yourself.
Arrivals with amber status are required to undergo a PCR test upon entering the island (day 0) on days 5 and 10 and must self-isolate until receiving a negative result from day 5. Again, if you have been vaccinated twice in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Guernsey or the Isle of Man you will need to be tested on arrival but will not need to self-isolate.
Those with a red status are required to undergo a PCR test upon your arrival on the island (day 0), day 5 and day 10. You must then self-isolate until you receive the results of your test on day 10. If you have been fully vaccinated on UK, Republic of Ireland, Guernsey or Isle of Man, you will also need to be tested on arrival and self-isolate until you get the first negative result. You must retake a test on day 8.
