PCR tests no longer compulsory for international travellers

Travellers will instead be required to do a lateral flow test and submit the result online

International travellers to the Island who are fully vaccinated and eligible to travel to the Isle of Man, will no longer have to take a PCR from midnight on 11 January.

Instead, they'll be required to undergo a lateral flow test within 12 hours of arrival.

They'll also have to avoid indoor public spaces until they submit a negative result online.

The change is in line with new rules imposed by the U.K. Government for international arrivals into England.

All travellers to the Isle of Man will have to fill in a landing form and sign a declaration that they will take a lateral flow test.
