Borders framework

Level 5 - Essential only
  • Allows for gradual return of residents who left before the border was closed
  • Theoretically limits the risk to the Island to a very low level - based on management of travellers each week from the UK
  • Residents return and risk is monitored and assessed
  • Legal requirement to self-isolate for 14 days

 

Level 4 - Non-essential resident travel
  • Allows all residents to be able to choose to visit the UK and beyond if they are prepared to self-isolate on their return
  • Numbers of travellers remain contained based on the legal requirement to self-isolate for 14 days on returning to the Island
  • Self-isolation by the individuals that have travelled off Island is the main defence against community transmission from any importation, as well as self-declaration of health status and landing details, including where self-isolation will take place, for contact tracing purposes.

 

Level 3 - Non-essential resident and hosted travel with self-isolation
  • Self-isolation by the individuals that have travelled off Island continues to be the main defence against community transmission from any importation
  • Enables residents to host close family and friends to visit them. Also provides for some tourism accommodation to be used for such visitors
  • Allows Isle of Man businesses, such as construction firms, to bring in workers with specialist skills under their sponsorship. Workers will still need to remain isolated from the community in accommodation, with the only exception being supervised activity at the workplace, away from other workers
  • Travel to and from the workplace will be tightly controlled
  • Self-declaration of health and landing details, including where self-isolation will take place, for contact tracing purposes

 

Level 2 - Resident and hosted travel
  • Major change to allow more freedom of movement by removing requirement to self-isolate upon arrival
  • Requirement for Isle of Man residents and businesses to sponsor visits will remain in place – including knowing the individuals and being able to account for their movements while on-Island
  • Self-declaration of health and landing details maintained for contact tracing purposes

 

Level 1 - Unrestricted travel: Borders open
  • All travel to and from the Isle of Man to recommence
  • Visitors who have no connection to the Isle of Man able to visit
  • Self-declaration of health and landing details maintained for contact tracing purposes

 

Level 0 - No restrictions
