International travel classifications

We align our international travel classifications with the UK Joint Biosecurity Centre traffic light system, except where Jersey has direct connections with a country.

We are awaiting the latest data for international travel classifications, which will be published in due course.

For direct connections, including the Republic of Ireland, France, Madeira, Majorca and Germany, which are assessed using the Government of Jersey's own ratings, classifications are online https://www.gov.je/health/coronavirus/travel/pages/declaringtravelhistory.aspx
