Level 3 border details announced

Changes to come into force on Saturday

Travellers coming into the Isle of Man who've been in the UK, Jersey or Guernsey for two weeks prior to travel will only need to isolate for one week from Saturday.

It's as the Island's border policy will move from Level 4, to Level 3 of the Exit Framework.

The reduced isolation time is subject to a negative Covid test on arrival and on day six, while those who choose not to be tested will need to isolate for three weeks.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle says there will still be restrictions in place between days seven and ten for those who leave isolation:

Shared household isolation will also be permitted, and only those travelling will be required to take the tests.

The cost of tests is also reducing from £50 each for three tests to £30 each for two.

Meanwhile, family members, property owners, and employees with a three-month work permit can apply for an exemption certificate to come to the Isle of Man from noon tomorrow.

Travellers will need to declare their family relationship as part of their application and those with property on the Island will need to provide evidence of ownership.

Applications can be made online at gov.im or in writing - details of who can qualify is available at gov.im/covid-19
