People who have been fully vaccinated in the EU or the US will not need to isolate when coming to Northern Ireland from Monday August 2.
Northern Ireland has relaxed its travel rules in line with the rest of the UK.
From Monday August 2, visitors from the EU or the US will not have to quarantine when they arrive in Northern Ireland – provided they have received double vaccinations from an approved distributor.
Travellers will still need to take either a lateral flow or PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test pre-departure and a PCR test on the second day after they arrive.
Under-18s will be exempt from isolation and some will not have to test, depending on their age.
Ministers also agreed to allow international cruises to restart from July 31.
There was also agreement that Villarreal fans coming to Belfast for next month’s UEFA Super Cup final against Chelsea will not have to self isolate.
The one-metre rule social distancing regulation will be universal in indoor settings.
Function rooms and community halls are also allowed to host live music however plans to reopen conferences and exhibitions have been delayed. This will be reconsidered in August.
