It’s understood that the EU Digital Covid Certificate will be used as an indoor dining pass.

Despite the pass granting permission for those who test negative for Covid-19 to non-essential travel, only full vaccinated individuals will be allowed to use the pass for indoor dining.

It’s understood that people from the UK, Northern Ireland and the US will be permitted to dine outdoors if they present proof of vaccination.

-AD-

People under the age of 18 will also be permitted to dine indoors once they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated individual.

In order for the system to be made legal, the legislation will need to be passed by the Dáil and the Seanad before it’s signed by President Micheal D. Higgins.

According to a government spokesperson, they are committed to having a plan for the resumption of indoor hospitality by the 19th of July.
