Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan has said that from July 19th vaccinated people arriving from Britain will not need to quarantine if entering Ireland.
The date is the same day the EU’s Digital Covid Certificate to allow travel within the EU for vaccinated and recovered people will commence.
The UK is not using the same certificate as the nation has left the EU.
However, Eamon Ryan said the rules for those traveling from the UK will be eased on the same date.
Currently anyone arriving from the UK must undertake a 14-day quarantine at an address they specify upon entry to the country.
However, the Green Party Leader said that the rules will not change for those who are unvaccinated.
