Sark's Seigneur has backed efforts to establish a customs post in the island, which he says would encourage tourists to travel directly from France.
Earlier, Sark Estate Management announced it was re-opening a hotel and restaurant this summer. It said it was likely the post - which would allow direct travel to the island - would be established.
Maj Christopher Beaumont, who inherited the Seigneur position from his father, said he was aware island politicians were discussing the matter with Guernsey authorities.
He said: "I personally support the move - I think it can be done. I don't think it has to be too expensive.
"We can after all see France quite clearly to the East. It would seem churlish not to find operators who wish to use Sark as a destination from the French mainland."
The Seigneur is the titular head of Sark, and has had many ancient rights and duties revoked, including having the sole right to keep pigeons on the island.
