The pilots of all private aircraft either entering or leaving the Bailiwick of Guernsey must complete a General Aviation report (GAR) for their arrival and departure.
The Pilot / Commander of an aircraft entering or leaving the Bailiwick must fully complete a General Aviation Report (GAR), a downloadable copy of which is available in the download section on this page. Alternatively copies can be obtained in Guernsey from Guernsey Air Traffic Control, Aiglle Aviation, ASG Ltd and in Alderney from the Airport Fire station.
You can submit your GAR forms electronically as long as the forms are electronically signed. The email addresses for each Island are as follows;
Guernsey - Detectionbranch@gba.gov.gg
Alderney - Alderney@gba.gov.gg
It is a security requirement that any electronic GAR's that have been submitted in Alderney must be available on an electronic device and presented to a security officer to have access to the airfield and be required for purchasing any duty free goods. Two copies will also be required if you are using the downloadable form from this page for access to the airfield and for duty free goods.
(Note:- GARs are not required for flights between the Islands of Guernsey and Alderney)
If any person aboard the aircraft has goods to declare, such as tobacco or alcohol in excess of their Personal Allowance, or other goods for permanent importation valued in excess of £270, they must attend a Customs Office or Customs red point to utilise the online declaration via the Passenger Payment Portals. For more information on what must be declared on import or export and specific rules or regulations about immigration matters visit: gov.gg/gba
Animals from outside the UK, Jersey, Isle of Man and Republic of Ireland cannot be landed by private aircraft, even if they have a valid Pet Passport or Animal Health Certificate*. Should a person attempt to do so, the animal may be removed from the aircraft and quarantined at the owners' expense.
*Unless the aircraft and owner/operator are registered under the Approved Carrier Scheme
