Requirement for a pre-departure COVID-19 Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test

  • If you are arriving into Ireland from overseas or are transiting through an Irish port or airport the current advice is you must have a negative/‘not detected’ result from a pre-departure COVID-19 Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test carried out no more than 72 hours prior to your arrival in Ireland. Antigen or other test types do not meet the requirements.
  • You will be asked to show evidence of this negative or 'not detected' result before boarding the airplane or ferry from the country you are travelling from and will be denied boarding if you cannot produce such evidence. Once you arrive in Ireland - you have to provide this evidence to Irish immigration officers.
  • You should retain the written confirmation of your test result for at least 14 days.

If you arrive without evidence of a negative or 'not detected' RT-PCR test or a valid exemption, this is an offence

  • You must enter and pay for mandatory quarantine in a hotel until either you receive a negative or ‘not detected’ RT-PCR test result or you have quarantined in the hotel for 10 days

If you arrive into Ireland from overseas and enter via Northern Ireland

  • You must have a negative or 'not detected' RT-PCR test result taken within 72 hours of arrival at the point of entry and retain this test result for 14 days after arrival. It must be shown upon request to a member of An Garda Síochána (the Irish police force).

Post-arrival quarantine requirements for all passengers arriving in Ireland

  • Mandatory quarantine requirements apply to all persons who have been overseas in the 14-days prior to entering Ireland. Arrivals from designated States are subject to mandatory hotel quarantine.

For all others arriving in Ireland from non-designated states:-

  • A 14-day quarantine period must be undertaken at the address specified on the Passenger Locator Form
  • Passengers who travel from another country to Ireland, and arrive via Northern Ireland, must also observe the mandatory quarantine regime
  • You may only leave your place of residence during the quarantine period for unavoidable reasons of an emergency nature to protect a person’s health or welfare, or to leave the State
  • You can end your period of quarantine if you receive written confirmation of a negative or ‘not detected’ RT-PCR test result taken no less than 5 days after arrival. You must retain the written confirmation of your test result for at least 14 days

If you do not fulfil the legal requirement for mandatory quarantine you are committing an offence.
