Returning to the UK.

There are no restrictions upon returning to the UK or other parts of the Common Travel Area from Jersey provided you have remained within Jersey and the Common Travel Area for the 10 days prior to returning to the UK. Please check the most up to date information on the UK Government page, if you have travelled outside of Jersey and the Common Travel Area. More information here.

Contact tracing.

There is no isolation requirement for anyone identified as a direct contact, unless it is confirmed as the Omicron variant*, if they participate in Jersey’s free testing programme and do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

If you’re identified as a direct contact whilst travelling to or whilst in Jersey, you won’t need to isolate but you must be available for PCR tests at an appropriate frequency if you are still in Jersey. You are able to leave Jersey provided you have not received a positive test result.

*Direct contacts of the Omicron variant must isolate for up to 10 days and undergo enhanced testing regardless of vaccination status or age.
