On-arrival testing 'working smoothly'

Thursday 29 October 2020

The first day of Phase 5C has been branded a ‘success’ by the organisations responsible for processing travellers arriving in the Bailiwick through Guernsey Airport.

The first flight of the day arrived from Southampton with six passengers on board, most of whom were processed within 30 minutes. Some chose not to take the test, and instead went straight into self-isolation.

Passengers who had pre-registered their journey through the online ‘Travel Tracker’ service were processed in the shortest amount of time.


Managing Director of Ports Colin Le Ray said the smaller number of passengers provided an opportunity to ‘review and refine’ the already ‘smooth’ process:

“A number of States of Guernsey and private sector organisations have worked hard in getting the facilities operational ahead of the deadline,” he said. “It is a useful reminder that all arriving passengers should endeavour, whenever possible, to pre-register in advance of their arrival using the States’ ‘Travel Tracker’ service.

“This will speed up processing time for passengers at the ports testing facilities. Self-service kiosks will also be available for passengers to process their information.”
