Approval Process

Once we receive your application dossier, Locate Jersey will carry out due diligence on your application. We then pass this on to the Comptroller of Taxes who will also review your application.

The final decision is then taken by the Government of Jersey’s Housing and Work Advisory Group (HAWAG).

If no further detail is required at either stage, the decision is communicated back to Locate Jersey.



Locate Jersey will then send you a confirmation letter of the decision.
