L'înformâtion et les sèrvices publyis pouor I'Île dé Jèrri


1. Introduction

Issued by the Jersey Customs and Immigration Service 

The anticipated departure of the UK from the European Union (Brexit) in January 2020, and the UK’s recently published policy intent have provided a basis for how the UK’s Future Border & Immigration System (FBIS) may look. The UK Government are now in the process of engaging with businesses to shape their final FBIS policy. 

Due to our membership of the Common Travel Area (CTA) - which permits Passport-free travel between the Crown Dependencies, the UK and Republic or Ireland - Jersey’s Future Immigration System will need to be aligned to the UK’s. 

Jersey Customs & Immigration Service (JCIS) are engaging with Island businesses and introducing the UK’s policy intent to ensure that local immigration policies are adapted to meet the needs of the Jersey business community; while simultaneously maintaining the Islands CTA obligations and security.

JCIS invites constructive and reasoned feedback on the UK’s proposals.  This will be compiled and submitted to the Government of Jersey to enable the formation of Jersey’s own immigration policy and system
