International travel and Covid-19: Find the latest advice and rules here

From 19th July, new advice and rules for international travel will come into effect in Ireland.

From 19th July, new advice and rules for international travel will come into effect in Ireland. COVID-19 is still a threat, but with continued public health measures, vaccination and testing, it will be possible to travel internationally.

You will need to plan your travel carefully and there are risks, so here are four things you should consider:

Make sure you consult the international travel advice for the country you are going to.

Visit gov.ie/travel for more information.

Look before you book! If your passport is out of date, you can use Passport Online today. Don’t book your travel until you get your new passport. Remember, passports for children and first time applicants take longer.

Visit gov.ie/travel for more information.

Make sure you understand the quarantine rules and in particular whether you will have to go into a Quarantine Hotel when you return to Ireland. The situation can change quite rapidly, so be careful about where you plan to go.

Visit gov.ie/travel for more information.

Starting this month, Digital Covid Certificates will be rolled out for people who have been vaccinated, or have recovered from COVID-19 in the preceding 180 days, or have had a negative COVID test obtained privately. The Digital COVID Certificate is not a passport or a travel document, but it can be useful for travel in the EU.

And remember, while travelling, please remain patient and allow extra time as delays are expected due to the increased number of checks that have been put in place to keep us all safe.

For up-to-date information on travel during the pandemic, go to gov.ie/travel.
