Passport Note

Though dependent on the UK, the Isle of Man has its own set of immigration and visa rules and visitors to the island may require separate visas than those for entry to the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland. Visitors from the Common Travel Area, made up of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, the Republic of Ireland and the Channel Islands do not require passports or visas to enter the Isle of Man; there are no passport controls when travelling between areas in the Common Travel Area. However, visitors from other places will reach the UK or Republic of Ireland first and so must comply with British or Irish immigration formalities before travelling to the Isle of Man.


Entry with pets

You can bring a pet dog, cat or ferret onto the Isle of Man from a rabies-free country or a country with a low incidence of rabies if the pet has been resident there for at least six months, has been microchipped and has been vaccinated at least 21 days prior to entry. If you are coming from a country with a high incidence of rabies your pet will require a blood titer test four months prior to entering the Isle of Man or it will be subject to quarantine. Before arrival your pet must also be treated against certain tapeworms 24-48 hours prior to entering the island, using an approved treatment; any licensed vet can do this.
