IRELAND HAS REMOVED all Covid-19-related travel restrictions, allowing visitors to come to the country without any testing or quarantine measures in place.

Travelers to Ireland are now no longer required to show proof of vaccination, proof of recovery, or proof of a negative test to enter, and the country has no post-arrival testing or quarantine measures in place, according to the government. The new rules went into effect last week.

Additionally, travelers will not be required to fill out a passenger locator form, which became very common for travel throughout the world during the pandemic.

“I’ve just signed the regulations removing the Covid requirements for incoming international passengers,” Stephen Donnelly, Ireland’s minister for health, tweeted. “These were the last remaining Covid regs… Another step forward in our Covid efforts.”

When in Ireland, face masks are not required to be worn, but they are recommended on public transportation, according to the government.

While Ireland has removed all Covid-era restrictions, travelers who wish to cross into Northern Ireland for a day trip or short stay are told they “should take a rapid lateral flow device test” before traveling, according to the government website for people living in Northern Ireland.

Ireland isn’t alone in lifting Covid-19-related travel restrictions. Last month, Iceland eliminated all Covid-19 restrictions, including all border-related travel rules, welcoming both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers.

The Maldives is now allowing vaccinated visitors to enter the country without proof of a negative PCR test. Additionally, France is waiving all pre-departure testing for fully vaccinated travelers and Israel started welcoming unvaccinated travelers this month, but requires them to get tested before coming and after arrival.

In the United States, several cities have also started to lift pandemic-era restrictions, like New York City, which lifted its vaccine mandate for bars, restaurants, and other indoor spaces.
