Reminder to passengers bringing goods to the Bailiwick from the EU

Share this page

Tuesday 18 May 2021

Passengers looking to travel once COVID-related border restrictions are eased are asked to take note of the new customs requirements when importing goods from the EU as well as which agri-food products (food, animals and plant material) can be brought between France (and the rest of the EU) and the Bailiwick.

Customs requirements

Agri-food products (food, animals and plant material)

This information will apply to passengers looking to use the ferry once it recommences as well as those travelling directly to Guernsey from the EU via aircraft when these routes recommence in future.

Officers are working with the travel operators to remind passengers of these rules prior to their trip but signs and bins will also be provided at the ports so that plants and plant material that fall within these definitions that are not accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate can be voluntarily disposed of.  If designated plants / plant material are not accompanied by the relevant certificate and are not voluntarily disposed of then they will be subject to seizure and destruction and must be declared to Customs at the time of arrival into the Bailiwick.

The types and volumes of agri-food products that can be imported to Guernsey from the EU are subject to change but media updates and information on the States of Guernsey website will be provided so that passengers are pre-warned and prepared.
