People have 12 months to pay back repatriation fees – 3FM

Those returning back to the Isle of Man will have a year to pay back their repatriation fees.

It comes following the confirmation those stranded overseas returning home will have to pay for their own travel and accommodation. 

The DHSC Minister David Ashford said funds will be capped at £1,000 and will cover repatriation, accommodation, travel and food.

The process is done via an application process – and the first small group of people are returning back to Manx shores tomorrow.

All people coming back to the Island will have to self-isolate for 14 days and won’t be going back to their homes – they will be staying at the Comis hotel in Santon, which will be monitored by security 24 hours a day.
