Dreaming of relocating to the Isle of Man? Now’s the time

If you are considering making a move and you’d like to explore the amazing work and life opportunities the Isle of Man has to offer, you will be delighted to know our borders are now open to visitors.

Now’s the time to come and experience all that our wonderful Island has to offer!

Here’s what you need to know:

If you have been in the UK, Ireland or the Channel Islands for 10 days prior to travel and are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (meaning you have had both doses and two weeks have passed since the final dose) we are so excited to welcome you back.

At this stage those who have had two doses of the Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine administered in the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man will be able to visit the Isle of Man without testing or quarantine on arrival. In addition, 14 days must have elapsed since receiving the second dose.

For visitors who have not had any doses of the vaccine, had one dose, or their second dose was not 14 days prior to travel, restrictions apply as per the Isle of Man Borders Framework. The border framework can be found HERE and will be updated accordingly.

There is no legal requirement to wear face coverings, socially distance or to limit the numbers of people gathering indoors or outdoors. Our hospitality sector is fully open and ready to go. There are no 'bubbles' and you may meet with members of other households. Everyone is advised to think about Hands, Face, Space and Fresh Air to reduce the risk of any potential transmission.

Be aware of the restrictions:

Visitors must not enter health and social care settings (including GPs, Dentists, Opticians, Care Homes) until 10 days after arrival; unless prior approval has been sought. If you are required to seek emergency treatment within the 10 days please call ahead.

For more information Visit Isle of Man have created a great guide which includes everything you need to know from a visitor checklist to detailed FAQs. You can find it HERE.

If you any questions regarding relocation whether it be related to border restrictions or not, please get in touch with the Locate team via We are excited to welcome you!
