​If the UK leaves the EU with a deal

If the UK leaves the EU with a deal and you’re an EU citizen you’ll be able to come through the border with a national ID card or passport until 2021. You’ll also be able to live and work in Jersey during the same period.

If you want to come to Jersey and you are a Non-EU/EEA or Swiss national you must meet certain requirements which can be found in the Jersey Immigration Rules. You may need a visa depending on your nationality and the purpose of travel. The Jersey visa requirements are aligned to the UK visa requirements.

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal and you’re an EU citizen you’ll still be able to come through the border with a national ID card or passport until 2021. You’ll then be able to stay for up to 3 months, during which time you can work or study.

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the UK government is proposing to end free movement by repealing the Free Movement Directive. Once free movement has ended, EU/EEA or Swiss citizens will need to apply for European Temporary Leave to Remain (EUTLR) to stay for longer than 3 months.

If you arrive in Jersey after free movement ends you will need to apply for EU Temporary Leave to Remain within 3 months of the date of your arrival in Jersey. There will be a fee for EUTLR applications.

The exception to this requirement is if you are an Irish citizen.  If you are an Irish citizen nothing will change and you will be able to continue to enter, live and work in Jersey as now, with or without a deal.

Further information on European Temporary Leave to Remain and the application process will be published at a later date.

If you want to come to Jersey and you are a Non-EU/EEA or Swiss national you must meet certain requirements which can be found in the Jersey Immigration Rules. You may need a visa depending on your nationality and the purpose of travel. The Jersey visa requirements are aligned to the UK visa requirements.

Common travel area

Jersey is part of the common travel area (CTA) of the UK and therefore maintains the same standard of immigration control as the UK.
