The Isle of Man borders continue to remain closed since 27 March 2020.
Non-Isle of Man residents who were seeking to enter the Isle of Man for travel reasons will be unable to do so at the moment.
For Non-Isle of Man residents who were seeking to permanently move to the Isle of Man to live or work prior to closing of its borders, it is now possible to apply for an exemption.

Please be aware that if you are granted exemption and provided that you are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 you will need to travel to the Island via specially designated transport.
