There are also no post-arrival testing or quarantine requirements. Any individual that develops COVID-19 symptoms while in Ireland should follow the HSE guidance in relation to isolation and undertaking antigen or PCR testing as appropriate. The Passenger Locator Form is no longer required. If you are traveling to Northern Ireland, via Ireland ports or airports you still need to comply with UK travel requirements.
