Passports & Visas
Coming into Jersey is straightforward. Jersey is part of the Common Travel Area and therefore maintains the same standard of immigration control as the UK.
Arriving from with the Common Travel Area
(UK, Isle of Man, Guernsey and Ireland)
If travellers are arriving from the U.K, passports are not required, but they will need a form of photo I.D. If you are travelling from other areas, read below to find out if you need a passport, visa or just an identification card.
Traveller should always check with their airline and ferry company before travelling to confirm the identification they’ll need to carry.
Arriving from outside the Common Travel Area
Everyone arriving in Jersey directly from outside the Common Travel Area will require a valid passport, other than a few exemptions. If travellers are just visiting Jersey on holiday, they don’t need a visa if they’re an EU or EAA national.
For more information about whether they’ll need a passport or a visa, read the advice for visitors from the Government of Jersey.
There are no travel restrictions regardless of vaccination status.
