Customs and Immigration

The Customs and Immigration Service is a government department. It has two main responsibilities:

  • controlling immigration on entry at Jersey harbours and airport
  • monitoring the importation of goods, involving the collection of customs and excise revenues and making sure attempts to smuggle prohibited or restricted goods, such as illegal drugs, are prevented.

For immigrants to Jersey, the service provides controls both before and after entry.

This work includes issuing Work Permits and considering requests for British Citizenship.

The service, which is part of the Home Affairs department, works with other agencies to investigate drug trafficking and money laundering offences.
