Covid-19 Restrictions on Cruising: Ireland


Status Summary

Travelling to Ireland

If you are travelling to Ireland from abroad you must fill out a Passenger Locator Form before departure.

You also have to have appropriate valid proof of vaccination or recovery, or to present evidence of a negative RT-PCR result from a test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the country.

See Demonstrate your COVID vaccination status.

Travelling with children

Children between the ages of 12 and 17 will be required to have a negative RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival to travel into the country, unless they have valid proof of vaccination or recovery.

Children of any age, travelling with accompanying vaccinated or recovered adults will not be required to self-quarantine post arrival. However, where one accompanying adult needs to self-quarantine, then all children must also self-quarantine.

Note: An 'emergency brake' mechanism will be coordinated at EU level to react swiftly to the emergence of a variant of concern or variant of interest. The Irish Governement regards the UK as any other non-EU/EFTA country and as such if such an emergency brake was applied to the UK further restrictions would be imposed including the requirement for a pre arrval PCR test and self-isolation or mandatory hotel quarantine
