IOM Covid removing restrictions

Told last night that it may be relaxation of travel restrictions and a new airway corridor.

It wouldn't be bad if the government releases some statistics about inbound/outbound migration; thus we know who is leaving and who is coming to live here.

Will ID cards for border controls be a thought for the future.

Well at last Howie has seen sense and as predicted gone to 7 days with test , so cost if £50 for 6 days off seems reasonable.

Isn't this what should have been done a long time ago...

7 days with restrictions, and then its a gamble.

If you come back with COVID but are one of the many who never know about it and elect to pay your £50, you now end up having to do 22 days

Self-isolating reduced from 14 to 7 days now.

Not really accurate that though is it?  Lots of people still can't go to work even if they test negative.  No-one who tests negative is able to go to the gym, pub, restaurant etc for 14 days still

Can’t work if in health etc but wouldn’t be bothered about gym, pub etc it’s going out for walks , seeing family, shopping etc

Actually no changes, they’ve always had to do that as they have various colour coded countries/ regions 

That's not quite right.  While they have always had a list of Green/Amber/Red countries, what Jersey have now done is to regionalise (indeed localise ) it, at least for the UK, France and Ireland[1].  So if you come from Cheshire, you can go out after your negative test on arrival, but from Liverpool you have to isolate for five days and then have a second test.  Though that presumably also means if you travel from Cheshire via Liverpool Airport you automatically become Amber.  Because the UK was all Green before, what they are actually doing is tightening things up.

 

[1]  Some other European Islands (eg in the Canaries) are also separated out. They did have a few regional variations before (mainly for France), but this is the first time they have been so specific.

Talking about possibly allowing family over from UK as next step. However most people I know are already getting them over as returning residents even though not been here for 5 years

Our Manx-born daughter (living in UK for last 8 years), husband and 6 month old grandchild (who we saw very briefly in February) have been told it's unlikely they will get permission to visit until the next review. So how are people circumnavigating the system?

It could be worse!!!

Leaving Australia | COVID-19 and the border

If you are an Australian citizen or a permanent resident you cannot leave Australia due to COVID-19 restrictions unless you have an exemption. You can apply online but you must meet at least one of the following: your travel is as part of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak, including the provision of aid.

A friend of mine hasn't lived here for a good 8 or 9 years but was allowed to come back a month or so go. As far as I'm aware he just filled in the paperwork.

 

Just to add his parent lives here

@Major Rushen Yes, there's a lot of Far East and SE Asia countries slamming the doors shut, and on each other too. Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines all imposing restrictions on movement between their jurisdictions.
