Ireland to Open to Vaccinated British Citizens from July 19

Ireland becomes the first European country to allow fully vaccinated British citizens to visit the country without the need for any COVID-19 tests into or out of the country.

The visitors who are fully vaccinated do not require to be isolated.

Niall Gibbons, chief executive of Tourism Ireland, said: “We are pleased to confirm this change in arrangements to welcome British visitors to Ireland from July 19th.

“The Covid-19 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, visitors need to fill out an online Passenger Locator Form that will be checked by their air or sea carrier before departure.

Passengers should also carry their vaccinations certificate, as the proof of vaccination could also be asked.

British tourists will need confirmation of full vaccination upon arrival in Ireland, such as their NHS App COVID Pass, a vaccination status letter, or their NHS vaccine paper card.

Passengers who arrive in Ireland without proof of vaccination will be required to show proof of a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours of arrival and will be quarantined for 14 days, or a minimum of five days if they prove negative with a second PCR test provided by the Health Service Executive on day five.

As of July 19, children under the age of 12 will not be required to take a PCR test prior to traveling.

On the other hand, those of age group 12 to 17, who are not fully vaccinated, will need to show negative RT-PCR test results on arrival in Ireland.

From Monday, hotel guests will be able to take advantage of indoor hospitality at the O’Driscoll’s Hotel in Dublin. Indoor hospitality is expected to resume on July 26th after a six-month break from indoor hospitality in Ireland.
