Vaccinated travellers entering from UK will not have to self-isolate from Monday

Fully vaccinated travellers from the UK will not have to self-isolate when they arrive in Ireland from Monday.

They will not be required to have a pre-departure PCR test either, as had been within the previous rules.


However, they will be required to carry proof of vaccination, an NHS Covid pass or a letter of proof of vaccination.

People who are not fully vaccinated will be required to have a pre-departure PCR test and will be required to quarantine at home for 14 days.

These rules will not apply to children under 12-years-old.


Likewise, travellers coming from the US will not be required to self-isolate on arrival if they are fully vaccinated.
