Updated guidance on children’s travel

This means that these regions will turn Red at the effective time.

No further emergency brake updates will be made before Tuesday, 29 June. All existing emergency brake areas will remain in place until Tuesday, 29 June at 00:01 when the emergency brake system will not currently be required with England being Red.  

Stage 7 Reconnection Roadmap delay

  • Ministers have agreed to delay Jersey’s Reconnection Roadmap for a further two weeks until Monday, 5 July at the earliest. Until that time, nightclubs will remain closed, except when operating as food and drink premises, stand-up drinking cannot resume and a maximum limit of 20 people in homes and gardens remains in place, except for weddings. Ministers will announce any revised guidance on Thursday, 1 July. 

Testing, travel history and vaccination status (unchanged) 

UK passengers arriving with a Green travel history who have Green Light status (fully vaccinated + two weeks) are required to undertake a test on the day of their arrival (day 0), with no isolation.

All other passengers arriving from the UK with a Green status are required to undertake a PCR test on arrival (day 0) and day 8, and must isolate until they receive a negative result from their day 0 test. 

UK passengers arriving with a Red travel history who are fully vaccinated (two doses + two weeks) are required to undertake a PCR test on arrival (day 0) and day 8, and must isolate until they receive a negative result from their day 0 test. 

All other passengers arriving from the UK with a Red status are required to undertake a PCR test on arrival (day 0), day 5 and day 10, and must isolate until they receive a negative result from their day 10 test. 

International travel classifications (unchanged)

We align our international travel classifications with the UK Joint Biosecurity Centre traffic light system, except where Jersey has direct connections with a country. 

The latest data for international travel classifications are attached.

International passengers arriving with a Green or Amber travel history who have Green Light status (fully vaccinated + two weeks) are required to undertake a test on the day of their arrival (day 0), with no isolation.

All other international passengers arriving with a Green status are required to undertake a PCR test on arrival (day 0) and day 8, and must isolate until they receive a negative result from their day 0 test.

International passengers arriving with a Red travel history who are fully vaccinated (two doses + two weeks) are required to undertake a PCR test on arrival (day 0) and day 8, and must isolate until they receive a negative result from their day 0 test.
