Covid test required on entry to Ireland

Posted in News on 14th January 2021

All passengers arriving into Ireland will have to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to departure from this Saturday, 16th January.

The negative test must be taken within 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland.

People arriving from Britain and South Africa will still be required to self-isolate for 14 days, even if they take a second test after arrival.

Arrivals from red and grey list countries, as defined by the EU traffic light system, and all other locations outside of Europe must restrict their movements for 14 days.

However, this may be lifted if the person receives a negative/not detected result to a test taken no less than five days after arriving in Ireland.

People arriving from green and orange list countries will not be required to restrict their movements on arrival, but must adhere to the local public health guidance.

Please note that country specific travel requirements are continuously changing and restrictions can be found on any of the following:
