Vaccination Exemption

The Vaccination Exemption is a one-time application that you do not need to reapply for. Please reuse these same exemption numbers in your landing cards each time you wish to visit / return to the Isle of Man.

You can apply to enter the Isle of Man if you have completed the full course of a vaccine recognised by the United Kingdom’s Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), and that the final vaccination was / will be administered 2 weeks prior to your arrival in the Isle of Man.

If you are able to evidence the above you will be exempt from all isolation requirements and PCR testing pathways. You will be required to comply with the following conditions;

  • Undertake a Lateral Flow test within 12 hours of arrival and report your result online
  • Not to enter any public buildings until you have provided the result of a negative Lateral Flow test

If you have not yet completed a full course of a qualifying vaccination, you may still be eligible to travel to the Isle of Man, but may still be required to isolate upon arrival and / or be subject to COVID-19 testing. Please refer to the Isle of Man Government COVID-19 website at https://covid19.gov.im/ for further information

A Vaccination Exemption must be completed for each individual wishing to travel to the Isle of Man on this basis. Requests for minors (children under the age of 16) should be completed on their behalf by a responsible adult.

Following your application, you will receive an email to advise if your Vaccination Exemption meets the criteria that is currently in place. If your Vaccination Exemption has been approved and you are not an Isle of Man Resident, you will automatically be issued with a Manx Entry Permit reference number. There is no need to apply for a separate Manx Entry Permit reference number. Once you have received your Vaccination Exemption, you do not need to apply again. These are your unique numbers, and are valid for all future travel.

Once you have received your approval email, you will also need to complete a Landing Card within the 48 hour period prior to your arrival in the Isle of Man. This includes a health declaration and information on the countries visited prior to your arrival in the Isle of Man. You will need to complete a new landing card each time you travel to the Isle of Man.
