Since 27th March 2020, 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’s border policy is at Level 5, which means there are only a very limited number of reasons you are able to travel to the Isle of Man. It is also strongly advised that you do not leave the Island due to the high level of transmission in neighbouring countries and possible further border restrictions.
Anyone arriving in the Isle of Man will be required to self-isolate for at least 14 days.
Anyone returning to the Island from 00.01am on Thursday 7th January 2021 will be required to take three tests: on day 1, 6/7 and on day 13.
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.
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
