Ireland welcomes fully vaccinated Brits from today

Ireland will be the first country in Europe to open to fully-jabbed British citizens from today.

They can visit without the need for any COVID tests into or out of the country. There will also be no requirement to self-isolate if fully-vaccinated. 

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “We are pleased to confirm this change in arrangements to welcome British visitors to Ireland from July 19. The COVID pandemic has been tough on everyone and these changes will afford many people an opportunity to reconnect with family and friends in a way that hasn’t been possible for a long time. Ireland’s tourism industry has adopted a safety charter to ensure the wellbeing of both our guests and hospitality workers. We wish all our British friends a safe and enjoyable visit to Ireland.”  

Before arriving in Ireland, Brits will complete an online Passenger Locator Form, to be checked by their air or sea carrier before departure. Passengers may also be asked for proof of vaccination. On arrival in Ireland, they will need to have proof of full vaccination, for example, showing their NHS App COVID Pass, a vaccination status letter or their NHS vaccine paper card. 

Visitors without vaccination proof will require evidence of a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland and will have to quarantine for 14 days or a minimum of five days if they prove negative with a second PCR test provided by the Health Service Executive in Ireland on day five. Children under the age of 12 need not have to take a PCR test prior to travelling to Ireland. However, children aged 12 - 17, who are not fully-vaccinated, will need to show a negative RT-PCR test result on arrival in Ireland, even when travelling with fully vaccinated adults. 

The indoor hospitality is likely to recommence from July 26 in Ireland. It will only be available to fully vaccinated visitors or people with proof of recovery from COVID-19 in the past six months.
