The islands of Guernsey (including Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm) are preparing to remove all testing and isolation requirements for UK and British Isle visitors from 1 July 2021. Changes to the islands’ travel restrictions have been made after swift progress on the vaccine rollout has continued across the islands as well as across the UK.

All of Guernsey’s adult population is expected to have received their first dose of vaccination by 1 July, with the most vulnerable completely vaccinated by this date.

A traffic light system will be introduced, with international visitors and destinations ranking on different levels in terms of restrictions. Restrictions will be published as and when the travel resumes and certain restrictions come into place. Visitors form the UK or elsewhere within the Common Travel Area will have no testing, self-isolation or vaccination requirements.

Ant Ford-Parker, founder/owner of Outdoor Guernsey and chair of the Guernsey Tourism Partnership, said: “This is great news for everyone involved in the tourism and hospitality industries in the Islands.  We are thankful to all those making the decisions and most especially the community, who have been so supportive, for getting us to this moment.  We now look forward with excitement to welcoming UK visitors, family and friends again. To rebuilding and revitalising our businesses and working to make the most of the new opportunities as people look for safe, welcoming and uniquely different destinations in a changed world.”
