Coming into Jersey is pretty straight forward. Jersey is part of the Common Travel Area and therefore maintains the same standard of immigration control as the UK. If you are arriving from the U.K, passports are not required, but you will need a form of photo I.D.  If you are travelling from other areas, read below to find out if you need a passport, visa or just an identification card. We can’t wait to welcome you to our shores.

 

Welcome to Jersey.

There are no formal immigration controls when travelling within the Common Travel Area. You don’t need to carry your passport or identity card for immigration purposes; however, customs and immigration officers may ask to see your photo ID and evidence of your UK immigration permissions.

Always check with your airline and ferry company before travelling to confirm the identification you’ll need to carry. Explore ways to travel to Jersey.
