Bringing a caravan or motorhome

The importation and use of caravans, motorhomes, campervans, folding campers and trailer tents in Jersey is controlled and specific conditions must be met by visitors and residents. All travellers are required to obtain a relevant permit or a letter of authority from Jersey’s Department of the Environment prior to travelling on Condor Ferries.

The following conditions are adhered to:

  • visitors must stay on a registered campsite
  • the maximum stay on the Island is 31 days
  • the maximum permissible width of a caravan, motorhome, campervan, folding camper or trailer tent, including the towing vehicle, is 2.3m (this includes any fitting on or attached to the vehicle, but excludes mirrors and indicators)
  • the permit must be displayed in the window of the caravan, motorhome or towing vehicle for the duration of the visit
