Fully vaccinated travellers to Ireland will no longer need to show a negative COVID test from midnight on Thursday.

The Foreign Office has updated its travel advice for Ireland to say that the temporary requirement for a PCR or antigen test, introduced on 3 December, will be removed for those who’ve had two doses of the vaccine.

However, arrivals from Great Britain who aren’t vaccinated will have to show a negative PCR test from midnight on Thursday, unless they have proof of recovery from a recent infection. The rule applies to anyone over the age of 11.

The Irish Government also advises all travellers to undertake daily antigen tests for five consecutive days, beginning with the day of arrival.

All travellers to Ireland must fill out a Passenger Locator Form before departure.
