Ireland is now accessible to vaccinated British

Ireland has been Europe's first country to have full-blown UK citizens visiting or from the country without the requirement to carry through Covid 19 testing.

If completely vaccinated from Monday there is also no need to self-isolate.

"We are happy to report that change in terms of agreements to welcome British tourists to Ireland from the 19th July. Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Ireland, said.

"The Covid 19 epidemic was hard on everybody, and these improvements will allow many individuals to reconnect with family and friends in ways that were no longer feasible.

"The tourist sector in Ireland has established a safety charter for both our customers and hospitality staff to be well-being. We hope a safe and pleasant journey to Ireland to all our British friends."

British tourists need to submit an online passenger tracking form before landing in Ireland and it is reviewed by the air or sea carrier before departing.

Proof of immunization might also be requested for passengers.

Upon arrival in Ireland, British tourists require confirmation of complete immunization, such as an NHS App Covid Pass, a letter of status, or an NHS paper vaccine card.

A negative RT-PCR test result will be required in 72 hours before the arrival in Irland for passengers without proof of immunization; a quarantine must be held for 14 days, or at least five days, if the second PCR-test provided in Ireland by the Health Service Executive on Day Fives proves negative.

From Monday, no PCR tests will be necessary for children under the age of 12 before their trip to Ireland.

However, even when traveling with fully vaccinated adults minors aged 12 to 17 years old, will have to produce negative RT-PCR test results on arrival in Ireland.

Indoor accommodation is expected to resume in Ireland on 26 July.

Only individuals who are fully vaccinated or have Covid-19 evidence of recovery in the last six months have indoor hospitality accessible.

Those who stay in hotels are allowed to make use of indoor accommodation from Monday in the hotel.
