Jersey

Global Sourcebook | Index | Properties

Jersey is a British Crown Dependency and therefore is not part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Except in matters of foreign affairs and defence, it is effectively an independent nation, and its inhabitants are fiercely proud of their status. The words ‘United Kingdom’, ‘Great Britain’ or ‘England’ should not be used in addresses; it is better to use ‘Channel Islands’.
