Manx residents can travel off-Island from today

Anyone returning must apply for a Manx Entry Permit

Manx residents can travel off-Island to the UK and beyond from today (20 July), as government's border policy moves from stage five to four.

Anyone wishing to go away and return to the Isle of Man must however apply for a permit.

Anyone is free to leave the Island at any time, however if you want to return then you must apply for a Manx Entry Permit.

You also have to complete a Landing Form 48 hours before arriving back, at which point you have to self-isolate for 14 days.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle has said any members of your household that haven't travelled don't have to quarantine with you.

He says the Covid-19 response team in government will however be carrying out random spot checks to make sure people stick to the rules.
