Jersey to scrap entry PCR test requirement next month

Jersey is to relax testing requirements for travellers arriving on the island who meet certain criteria.

From November 2, passengers who are double-jabbed with a government-approved vaccine; can prove that they have had Covid-19 within the last 90 days or present a negative pre-departure PCR test result will not need to take an additional test or isolate.

The pre-departure PCR test must be taken within 72 hours of arrival in Jersey and the result must be declared on the pre-travel registration form.

People who do not meet any of three conditions will be required to take a PCR test on arrival and isolate until a negative result is received.

The Safer Travel Policy rules currently state that passengers – either fully vaccinated or not – must take a PCR test on arrival and isolate until a negative test result is returned.
