Most visitors bringing their caravans, motorhomes, campervans and trailer tents to Jersey will
no longer need to apply for and display a Caravan-Motorhome permit.
Changes to Jersey’s planning laws - made this week by the Minister for the Environment,
Deputy Jonathan Renouf - mean that those visitors staying for 31 days or fewer will be
granted the permission automatically, by default.
The Minister for the Environment, Deputy Jonathan Renouf, said: “The existing system seemed
overly burdensome for those valued visitors wanting to enjoy a short visit to Jersey without
getting caught up in red tape.
“There are still criteria in place around the size of vehicles, where they’re stationed overnight
and how long they can stay here without a permit, but we hope that removing the pre-holiday
administration will make things more straight forward for the holidaymakers and for our
Existing rules which stipulate that caravans, motorhomes and campervans must not be used by
visitors as overnight accommodation, unless stationed at a designated campsite, remain in
place. Caravans, specifically, also continue to be banned from public roads in Jersey, unless
travelling from the harbour to a campsite.
Visitors intending to keep their caravan, campervan or motorhome in Jersey for longer than 31
days still need to apply for permission.
The changes to the law apply from 31 May 2023. Full information about the conditions can be
