JERSEY is welcoming tourists back from today, without quarantine restrictions – depending on where you live in the UK.

Eight parts of Britain must still self-isolate for 10 days, while more than 100 others regions must quarantine for five days.

The five-mile island has opened their border, but have reinstated their traffic light system for UK regions.

Parts of the UK who are listed as red must have a negative PCR test on arrival, as well as day five and 10, along with a mandatory 10-day quarantine.

This includes:

  • Barnsley
  • Boston
  • Doncaster
  • Kirklees
  • Leicester
  • Luton
  • Rotherham
  • Slough

Clackmannanshire in Scotland and parts of Ireland are also in the red list.

More than 100 regions in England are on the amber list which requires the same restrictions, but with a five-day mandatory quarantine instead.

This includes Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and parts of London.

Only green list regions can avoid the mandatory quarantine restrictions, of which the rest of England is included such as Blackpool, Bristol, Cornwall, Liverpool, York and parts of London.

Green region arrivals still must have a negative PCR test before arrival, as well as on day five and 10.


The traffic light system, which can be found here in full, is based on cases over the past 14 days, and only places with less than 50 new cases per 100,000 are green.

However, those lucky enough to be on the green list can head to Jersey without restrictions.

Jersey also has more than 30 beaches, which making it a popular holiday destinations for Brits.

Since the borders reopened, Condor Ferries, which connects Jersey, has seen a 22 per cent increase of website traffic, while accommodation requests soared 400 percent after the border announcement back in March.

Amanda Burns, Chief Executive Officer of Visit Jersey, said: "We know British holidaymakers have been longing for a well-deserved getaway and we can’t wait to offer something different after a difficult year of restrictions."

Brits heading to the island do not need to fill in a travel declaration form as Jersey is part of the Common Travel Area.

Summer holidays abroad, which hope to resume from May 17, are at risk with "green" countries still being blocked by the Foreign Office.
