1. Borders

We have already closed our borders to any non-residents. We will now move to extend this to all arrivals.

There will be no commercial flights or light aircraft permitted to land at Ronaldsway Airport beyond the last scheduled flight tomorrow.  The only exceptions will be for emergency medical transportation and the mail flight.

We will also stop all passenger arrivals by boat. This will come into force from the arrival of the Thursday night Ben-My-Chree sailing that is scheduled to arrive at 6am on Friday morning.


We had already indicated that this was imminent and we hope all those who were planning to come home to the Island will have done so.

The only exceptions to these travel restrictions will be a very limited group of people who are necessary for our critical national infrastructure or for the preservation of human life. These people will need prior written approval before they are allowed to travel.

This measure will be in place for an initial period of twenty one days. We will keep this under review in light of the spread of infection on the Island and the situation across in the UK.

Freight will of course continue to come in as normal.
