Being able to maximise your days and reset the internal clock is priceless.

Digital Jersey will connect you with investors, expert support and no shortage of resources to remove the barriers to your growth and success, with a ‘make it easy’ attitude in our world-class well-regulated environment.

Thanks to our leading test, track and trace initiative, Jersey has not been subject to the same strict local restrictions recently imposed across the UK and Europe. Supported by our dedicated contact tracing team and the Jersey COVID Alert app, work continues to contain outbreaks, enabling life in Jersey to continue relatively normally – giving you added peace of mind in launching your start-up in Jersey.
Our Safer Travel Policy has been successful in enabling Jersey to keep its borders open, allowing travellers to enter the island with a simple pre-departure registration form submitted 48-hours before you travel, with free COVID testing on arrival, as well as a reasonable isolation period to ensure the safety of both travellers and local islanders. Isolation periods differ depending on where you are travelling from. Search for your location here to find out more.
