Business and employee travel

The Isle of Man Government has introduced strict measures relating to all people coming to the Isle of Man. This includes tourists, returning residents, students, and business travel.

 

The Isle of Man has now closed its borders to all passengers (from 6am Friday 27 March 2020).  This measure will be in place for an initial period of 21 days. 

Anyone arriving on the Isle of Man will be required to self-isolate for at least 14 days.

This restriction is in place until further notice and is legally enforceable.

 

All businesses should review their travel policies to ensure that this requirement is accounted for appropriately. Businesses may wish to explore the use of video-conferencing and remote meeting tools as an alternative to business travel.

International travel

Foreign & Commonwealth Office travel advice is constantly under review, so that it reflects the latest assessment of risks to British people.

In response to coronavirus measures FCO are advising against all but essential travel to some countries, cities and regions. You must check the travel advice which covers the country you are travelling to.

FCO may update travel advice several times a day in a developing crisis.

The National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) has also produced general advice on preparing for foreign travel and how everyone can reduce the spread of respiratory viruses. https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/news/499/novel-coronavirus-covid-19-general-advice-for-travellers

You should ensure that your organisation has a business travel policy in place and is kept up to date to reflect latest FCO guidance. Latest guidance can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
