With staycations still a key part of UK travellers’ holiday plans, the government of Jersey has announced key changes to its Safer Travel Policy.

The island will now move to the European benchmark of 50 cases per 100,000 as the green to amber threshold.

Visitors and returning islanders from a Green area will be tested on arrival and on day five (if still in Jersey), although there is currently no requirement to self-isolate between tests.

Amber arrivals will be subject to the same as Green but will need to self-isolate until a second negative test result. Those arriving from a Red area will be tested on arrival and then have to self-isolate for a mandatory 14-day period.

Travellers will still be able to have a verified PCR test up to 72 hours before travelling to Jersey.

The government of Jersey has updated its website. Full details can be found here.
