Students returning to the Isle of Man

The Isle of Man has moved from Level 5 to Level 4 in the Isle of Man Borders Framework.

This means that Isle of Man residents can register to enable non-essential return travel to the Isle of Man, if they are prepared to self-isolate for 14 days on their return.

Manx Students wishing to return must complete a travel registration form ahead of travelling back to the Island.  See further details on the COVID-19 website

The department has received an update that UK ministers have made a commitment that all students will be allowed to return home for Christmas.

The Manx Students' Union’s Operation Fairy Bridge aims to breakdown what people 'need to know' on repatriation and the processes to go through. You can find more details by following this link.

Self-isolation guidance and a list of Accommodation providers for students looking to self-isolate can be found at the COVID-19 website.

For more information regarding Accommodation financial support for Returning Students please also visit the COVID-19 website.
