IMPORTANT: The information provided below is only a quick guide, but it may be subject to change due to permanent changes in the health situation. Therefore, always corroborate the information with the official entities and the airline with which you intend to travel to and also check if at the time of your trip, the country you are coming from is not within the list of High Risk Countries.

Covid-19: Regulations for travel to Republic of Ireland

International travel to Ireland is allowed. You need to meet the requirements to ensure entry is allowed.

Open with conditions

If another country has been visited in the previous 14 days which is considered a 'scheduled state', travelers will not be allowed to enter. There are exemptions for Irish residents, EU citizens and UK citizens who will undergo further testing and quarantine requirements regardless of vaccination status. Full details can be found HERE

Vaccinations and travel rules for vaccinated people

Travelers presenting a valid international certificate of complete vaccination against COVID-19, using an approved vaccine, must present proof of a negative antigen test, taken within 48 hours of arrival. This would replace the requirement to provide a PCR test. The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days prior to departure. Full details and approved vaccine list can be found HERE

EU COVID digital certificate

Travelers can provide their EU digital certificate on paper or digitally as proof of vaccination, negative test result or prior recovery. Health documents provided in this way will not require additional verification on arrival. Full details on the EU digital certificate, including how EU residents can access their certificate, can be found HERE

It is mandatory to submit medical certificate / proof

Upon arrival, proof of a negative RT-PCR test, taken within the previous 72 hours, must be presented. This may also be necessary before boarding the flight. Alternatively, vaccinated travelers or those who have recently recovered from COVID-19 may have a negative antigen test instead, taken within 48 hours of arrival. Recovered travelers must present their negative antigen test along with proof of a positive PCR test, taken at least 11 days prior to arrival and no more than 180 days.

Additional documents required

An online 'Public Health Passenger Locator Form' must also be completed prior to arrival.

World situation. General considerations
Due to the advancement of vaccination worldwide, documentation and testing restrictions have been eliminated in many countries. In fact, in some countries, by presenting the complete vaccination certificate against Coronavirus, RT-PCR or antigen test results are no longer required, nor is a health affidavit form.

However, we insist once again, that in the situation of constant changes, it is always important to consult and finalize details with the airline and, if necessary, with the airport as well as, in the case of international flights, with the embassy or consulate near the final destination, and also with the countries involved for connecting flights, if any.
In this sense, it is useful to review the International Map of the current restrictions of each country.
