The good news is Ireland is now open for international travellers who are fully vaccinated or have the EU Digital Covid Certificate (DCC). Adult travellers who arrive in Ireland with proof of vaccination or the DCC will have no travel-related testing or quarantine requirement.
This means that, whether your trip originates in the USA, Canada or elsewhere in the world, you will be able to enter Ireland as long as you can prove you are fully vaccinated or have the EU Digital Covid Certificate.Read More
When arriving into Ireland from Canada or the USA, you must carry proof that you are fully vaccinated with a full course of one of the approved vaccines.
If you don’t carry such valid proof of vaccination, or the EU Digital Covid Certificate for EU residents, you will need to enter some form of quarantine.
When you arrive in Ireland from a country to which the emergency brake hasn't been applied and don't carry proof of vaccination, you will need to:
A mandatory 14 day hotel quarantine is only required if you arrive in Ireland without proof of vaccination from a country to which the emergency brake mechanism has been applied.
The EU will apply an 'emergency brake' mechanism to countries where Covid-19 and/or variants of concern are becoming widespread.
If you arrive in Ireland from a country to which this mechanism has been applied, you will have to undergo some form of quarantine. This will be dependent on your vaccination status.
The emergency brake mechanism will be continually assessed by the EU based on the spread of variants. All relevant updates will be posted here. Confirmed 2021 guests will be notified directly of major changes.
