Foreign Carrier Permits


Operators and charterers of aircraft registered in a foreign country require a Foreign Carrier Permit in order to undertake commercial air transport to, from and within the Isle of Man. Only aircraft operating under the privileges of an Air Operators Certificate issued by the UK Civil Aviation Authority are exempt from this requirement; aircraft from all other States, including EU Member States, require a Foreign Carrier Permit.


The administration of Foreign Carrier Permits is conducted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority on our behalf. Applications should be made directly to the UK Civil Aviation Authority following the UK processes. The application is subject to the normal UK charges.
