Written answers (Question to Health)

The EU Digital COVID Certificate regulation lays down the framework for the issuance, verification and acceptance of interoperable COVID-19 vaccination, test and recovery certificates to facilitate free movement during the COVID-19 pandemic. How each individual Member State incorporates the EU Digital COVID Certificate as part of their international travel measures is a national decision.

The requirements for international travel into Ireland are kept under regular review based on the evolving international epidemiological situation.
