The Isle of Man is welcoming back fully vaccinated and natural immunity visitors, please read carefully before making any travel arrangements to ensure that you are eligible to visit.

Before you book

No isolation or testing is required for fully vaccinated (including 16-17 year olds that have received at least one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine) and natural immunity visitors (those that have tested positive for COVID-19 180 days prior to arrival to the Island).

You must also have not travelled to any countries on England’s Red Travel List in the 10 days prior to arrival to the Island and do not have COVID-19 or are displaying any symptoms.

The natural immunity exemption applies for those who have undertaken a PCR test within the 180 days prior to their arrival in the Island and the result of that test was positive; undertook that PCR test in the Common Travel Area (UK, IOM, Ireland and Channel Islands); have not travelled outside the Common Travel Area in the 10 days prior to their arrival in the Island; and at least 11 days must have passed since receiving the positive PCR test result

Visitors will be asked for evidence of their vaccination or evidence of natural immunity before entering the Isle of Man.

This evidence can be uploaded when completing the Vaccination Exemption or the Immunity Exemption Form.

Travel requirements for minors

If you are travelling with children aged 12-17 years old who have not been vaccinated and have been in the Common Travel Area in the 10 days prior to arrival they will be subject to Pathway 2 ‘Test to Release’ pathway. Each child must have a COVID-19 PCR test within 48 hours of arrival and must isolate pending a negative result.
