Just a few weeks after it moved the whole of the UK to its Green List, Jersey has brought back restrictions at the UK local authority level.
What is worse is that the list is being revised twice per week. This makes it impossible to say with any certainty whether you will allowed into Jersey without the need for lengthy quarantine. Changes will come into effect 48 hours after being announced.
If you live in a ‘Green’ area you can still fly to Jersey with minimal restrictions.
If you are double vaccinated you need to take a test on arrival but can do what you like whilst waiting for the result. If you are not double vaccinated, you need to remain in your hotel for 6-12 hours until the test result comes in, and take a second test on Day 8 if you are still in Jersey at that point.
If you live in an ‘Amber’ area and are fully vaccinated then the same rules apply.
If you live in an ‘Amber’ or ‘Red’ area and are not fully vaccinated then you will need to quarantine for 5 or 10 days which clearly makes a holiday out of the question.
All of London is currently ‘Green’ except Hounslow which is ‘Red’, which shows the arbitrary nature of the system.
