Travellers arriving from Britain into Ireland from July 19th will not longer have to quarantine.
That is if they are fully vaccinated says the Minister of Transport, Eamon Ryan.
The implementation of the EU’s Digital Covid Certificate also falls on this date which allows visitors who are fully vaccinated, have recovered from Covid-19 within six months or have produced a negative covid test result to travel within in the EU.
However, with the UK no longer members of the EU, they will not be eligible to use this certificate, however, Mr Ryan has stated that those travelling to Britain from the 19th will be able to do so freely.
Currently, those travelling from the UK into Ireland must quarantine on arrival for 14 days at the address produced on a passenger locator form they must fill out; This would continue with visitors who are not fully vaccinated again Coronavirus Mr Ryan has stated, as “[Ireland] did strengthen regulations in recent weeks because of concern about the Delta variant. Because that’s here now as well as in the UK’. He also added how “That was done to try and delay and hold back the arrival of the Delta variant here. So I think travel with the UK will become much easier particular for those who are vaccinated from the 19th”.
He also stated how he was “confident” that the EU Certificate Scheme would be in place by this date and “working well”.
