The complete list of Ireland travel restrictions – the rules you should be aware of.
IRELAND has eased travel restrictions in light of new information on the Omicron variant.
New regulations will make it easier to visit the country, but what do you need to know?
Ireland is one of the most recent countries to relax coronavirus travel restrictions.
Additional pre-testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers have been eliminated under new regulations, eliminating the need for PCR tests.
The complete list of new travel rules can be found here.
Following further analysis of the threat posed by Omicron, new travel restrictions have been implemented across the UK and Ireland.
Following a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, a number of changes to the current Covid restrictions were made.
New data detailing the less severe symptoms associated with the Omicron variant led to the revision of the travel rules.
According to the most recent evidence, the variant is more transmissible than previous strains of the virus, but it causes less severe illness.
Previously, regardless of vaccination status, all visitors to the country were required to take a pre-departure PCR test before entering.
Those who have been vaccinated will benefit from the new restrictions, while those who have not been vaccinated will see little change.
“We’re delighted to be able to welcome fully vaccinated visitors back to Ireland without the need for pre-departure testing,” Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain, said on this website.
“Hassle-free travel within the common travel area has been restored, and fully vaccinated visitors from the United Kingdom will be able to travel between the United Kingdom and Ireland without having to undergo testing or quarantine.”
The following are the most recent travel recommendations for visitors to Ireland:
Prior to travel, vaccinated or recovered travelers will be required to show proof of a valid digital Covid certificate or previous infection.
Visitors who have not been vaccinated will be required to show proof of a negative RT-PCR test performed within 72 hours of their arrival in Ireland.
Those who have not recently recovered from COVID-19 must also show proof of a negative RT-PCR test before traveling.
A passenger locator form is required of all visitors to Ireland.
While fully vaccinated travelers are not required to take a PCR test to enter Ireland, valid proof of vaccination or recovery from the virus is required at the time of entry.
Proof of your coronavirus status should come from a vaccination program with approved proof of certification, according to gov.uk.
