Ireland (07 March 2022) – Covid-related travel requirements to be lifted in Ireland


What is the change?

The Irish government has announced that travellers to Ireland no longer require proof of vaccination, proof of recovery or a negative PCR test result upon arrival. Additionally, travellers to Ireland will no longer be required to complete a Covid-19 Passenger Locator Form. Finally, there are no post-arrival testing or quarantine requirements for travellers to Ireland.

Key points:

  • Implementation time frame: This change was implemented on 6 March 2022.
    Who is affected: Anyone who is planning to travel to Ireland.
  • Next steps: Anyone travelling to Ireland should still ensure that they have all other relevant permission and documentation before travelling to Ireland.
  • Anyone who will transit through another country before arriving in Ireland should be sure to check the relevant entry requirements in the country of transit.

Analysis & Comments:

The lifting of these Covid-19 travel regulations will make travelling to Ireland easier, with less pre-departure requirements. This will also aid those in parts of the world where Covid-19 testing is not readily available.

Travellers to Ireland still need to comply with all relevant immigration policies. Travellers to Ireland should also be sure to check travel requirements in any countries that they may transit through on their way to Ireland.
