Ships’ Registry

The Jersey Ships’ Registry, in conjunction with all of Ports of Jersey, is following Government of Jersey advice with respect to social distancing and other precautions during the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

Consequently, the Ships’ Registry Office is staffed at a reduced level and is closed to callers. There is a mail reception point established outside the office.

As a result it is likely it will take longer than usual to respond to communications either by post, phone or by email.

The patience and understanding of our customers is greatly appreciated.
