Requirements for travelling to NI from a green list country

Before you travel to Northern Ireland from a green country you must:

  • provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken up to three days before departure
  • book and pay for a day two COVID-19 PCR test
  • complete a UK passenger locator form 48 hours before departure

Pre-departure testing

All those aged 11 years and over must take a COVID-19 test, in the three days before you start your journey to Northern Ireland, even if you’re normally a resident in Northern Ireland.

For example, if you travel on Friday, you must take a test on the Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

You will need to present valid proof of your negative test before you board to travel to Northern Ireland. If you don’t, you may not be allowed to board.

If you arrive in Northern Ireland without proof of a negative test result, you could be fined £500, as this is a criminal offence. You can also be fined if the test doesn’t meet the required standards or contain all of the necessary information.

You can choose to take a test:

  • in the place where you start your journey
  • in another country on your way to Northern Ireland

If you plan to take a test on your way to Northern Ireland, you must make sure that this is possible before you set out.
