COVID-19 Updates

Travel to Ireland 

The Government of Ireland continues to advise against all non-essential international travel, including to the United States. The US government also advises against most non-essential international travel currently, including to Ireland. 

If you are travelling to Ireland from abroad you must fill out a Passenger Locator Form before departure.

As of 19 July if you:

  • have valid proof of vaccination, no travel-related testing or quarantine will be necessary.
  • have valid proof of recovery from COVID in the past 180 days, no travel-related testing or quarantine will be necessary.

If you do have valid proof of vaccination or recovery, you will need to:

  • present evidence of a negative result from a RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the country
  • self-quarantine for 14 days
  • if you receive a negative result from a RT-PCR test taken from day 5 onwards after arrival into Ireland, you will be able to leave quarantine

For the purposes of travel, you are considered vaccinated if you have been vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency with recommended number of days after the final dose.

Children between the ages of 12 and 17 will be required to have a negative RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival to travel into the country, unless they have valid proof of vaccination or recovery.

Children of any age, travelling with accompanying vaccinated or recovered adults will not be required to self-quarantine post arrival. However, where one accompanying adult needs to self-quarantine, then all children must also self-quarantine.

 

Travel to Ireland from specific designated States is also subject to mandatory hotel quarantine. As of 28 May, the United States is no longer a designated state. As such, passengers arriving into Ireland from the US are no longer required to complete Mandatory Hotel Quarantine.
