Travel to the Isle of Man

As of 4am on Tuesday 30 November 2021 the Isle of Man will require all travellers to do an LFT or PCR test once arrived on Island.  

There are now two sets of entry pathways:

Any travellers who have only been within the Common Travel Area (British Isles, Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey) in the 10 days before arrival, will have to:

  • Manx Resident (regardless of vaccination status): No Entry Exemption or Permit required, but will need to complete a landing card. An  LFT must also be taken once on Island and the result submitted online.
  • Non-Resident (fully vaccinated/has natural immunity): Will need to apply for a Vaccination or Immunity Exemption and, if approved, complete a landing card. An LFT must also be taken once  on Island and the result submitted online.
  • Non-Resident (not fully vaccinated/no natural immunity): Will need to apply for a Manx Entry Permit and, if approved, complete a landing card. An LFT must also be taken once on Island  and the result submitted online. A PCR test must also be undertaken on Island within 48 hours of arrival – isolating until a negative result is confirmed. A day 6 follow-up test will also be required.

Until a negative LFT result is confirmed all travellers should avoid entering public buildings.

If the LFT result is positive, travellers must isolate immediately and report their result
