Written answers (Question to Health)

The requirements for travel are kept under regular review based on the evolving international epidemiological situation. At present, and as part of our response to the emergence of the Omicron variant, passengers travelling to Ireland require a valid test result (subject to limited exemptions). A person travelling from Great Britain, who is vaccinated and who does not have a recent travel history to a scheduled state, is required to present evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours or arrival or a negative antigen test taken within 48 hours of arrival. Passengers are also required to complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator form. Full details on international travel policy and the types of tests accepted are published at
