Government advising of change coming in today
People travelling to the Isle of Man, through England, from amber list countries won't have to book a private Covid test in the UK.
The change has come into effect today (29 June).
Isolation rules remain the same for anyone coming to the Island who's travelled outside of the UK, Guernsey, Jersey or Ireland 10 days before heading to Manx shores.
They will either have to isolate for 21 days or for seven days if they agree to testing on arrival and on day six.
The Isle of Man Government says passengers should be prepared to show evidence of their onward journey to Manx shores.
When filling out the passenger locator form, people are being told to:
- Select 'Stay in the UK' under the 'Your Travel Plans' section
- Then, reply 'I will be travelling for an exemption reason' to the question about whether you're required to self-isolate on arrival
- Select the exemption options, and then select 'Transit Exemption'
