Required Documents to Apply
Guernsey, also known as Bailiwick of Guernsey, is a group of islands in the English Channel. It is a remnant of the medieval Dukedom of Normandy and there are plenty of medieval ruins. Get ready to drink, since the island of Alderney has the highest number of pubs per capita in the world. It is much sunnier than the compared to the UK, making it possible for you to get out and explore the islands by day. Since the population is so small, some islands grow incredibly quiet at night.
Before you start planning your trip to Guernsey, you need to make sure you don't require a visa since many nationalities must to get a travel permit. This permit is not called a 'visa', but instead is known as a ‘leave to enter’ or ‘leave to remain.’ Note that countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) enjoy freedom of movement, but the citizens of other countries do not. If you aren't from the EU or an Annex II country, you must receive a ‘leave to enter' pass.
If you want to learn more about the visa policy, you try to locate info on the Guernsey government website. However, we recommend that you try out Visa Checker Tool. iVisa designed it to help you find out whether or not you need a travel document. Simply choose your country of origin from the drag-down menu and select Guernsey as your destination. In seconds, you'll know if you need a visa. If you don't, you are free to travel. If you do, you will be given a list of the embassies you can use to apply in-person.
Unfortunately, iVisa cannot help you obtain a 'leave to enter' for Guernsey. We still like to help travelers, which is why we offer a free 24/7 support service to answer any questions about the visa process.
If you require a leave to enter, you may be able to find out more through the internet, but we recommend that you contact l the issuing authority (diplomatic mission, consulate, or embassy) itself. They will provide the most reliable information. Private websites are not always brought up to date, leading to critical mistakes.
Nevertheless, what we can tell you is that you need a passport that remains valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival in Guernsey. For further information, contact the nearest embassy of Guernsey.
We are sorry we cannot further assist you with obtaining a visa, but as soon as the ‘leave to enter’ is accessible online, iVisa will design a safe and quick application process. Until then, we hope that the information above is useful.
