Ireland Extends Quarantine Requirement for Travelers Coming from Great Britain

Ireland has announced that unvaccinated travelers from Great Britain to Ireland will have to quarantine for 10 days instead of 5. The increased requirements are in response to the spread of the Delta variant in Britain.

Changes for Travelers
  • Unvaccinated travelers will have to present negative COVID-19 test results and self-quarantine for 10 days.
  • After the 10-day quarantine, they will be required to take a second test.
  • The extended quarantine requirement is expected to be in place until July 19.

Ireland has maintained the most restrictive travel policies within the EU. Ireland plans to adopt the EU’s COVID-19 certificate from July 19.
