Passengers to Ireland from Great Britain will be required to show evidence of a negative PCR test

The Irish Government has updated its rules on travel to Ireland from Great Britain and South Africa.

From 9 January 2021, all passengers arriving at Irish airports and ports whose journey originates in Great Britain or South Africa will be requested to have evidence of a negative result from a pre-departure Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) COVID-19 test (COVID-19 not detected) taken up to 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland.

These people will be advised to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival in Ireland.

Paul Baker said:

If you’re travelling to Ireland, it’s crucial that you book a PCR test before you depart. We can provide information on recommended PCR test suppliers. So business travellers intending to visit Ireland should contact their GTM Account Manager for advice.

Scott Pawley said:

An increasing number of countries are mandating negative PCR tests for travel, and the list of countries demanding this is changing almost daily. So, at GTM, we are recommending that anyone making international trips from the UK should take a PCR test prior to departure.
