Information for Commonwealth Youth Parliament delegates

Travel and accommodation information for delegates and mentors attending the conference

​Accommodation

The Jersey branch will make all necessary accommodation arrangements for each participating Youth Parliamentarian and mentor. All conference participants will be staying at the Pomme d'Or Hotel in St Helier. The hotel is a short walk from the States Assembly.

Email Leah Stoodley if you have any questions about your accommodation.

Meals

Most meals will be provided during the programme. You must notify the conference organisers at the time of registration if you have any special dietary needs.

Transport

Return transport to and from Jersey Airport, and any necessary local transport in Jersey as part of the programme, is provided. There are several flights each day between Jersey and London Gatwick and other UK airports.

For further information on where you can fly to and from Jersey, see the Jersey Airport website.

Dress code

All Youth Parliamentarians are expected to dress in business attire or national dress for the programme. This includes a jacket, shirt and tie for men.

Weather

In late February the daytime temperature is likely to be around 12˚C or colder. Wind and rain are also possible so warm clothing, including raincoats and umbrellas, is essential.

Keep up to date with the weather forecast on gov.je.

Visa requirements

Jersey is part of the British Isles' common travel area. There are no immigration controls between the UK and Jersey. Photo ID is often required by airlines flying into Jersey.

Check visa and passport requirements for visiting Jersey on gov.je.

Check if you need a visa if you are travelling from outside the UK on gov.uk.

Insurance

Youth Parliamentarians and mentors must arrange their own medical and travel insurance. 

Jersey has health agreements with a number of different countries. These agreements provide some free health care, or health care at a lower cost, if you are taken ill while on holiday. Only urgent treatment will be provided. You are therefore strongly advised to ensure you have insurance in place.
