On 6 March 2022, the government of Ireland removed all travel requirements for international travelers entering the country.

Travelers will also not be required to complete a Passenger Locator Form for travel.  

What are the Changes? 

The government of Ireland removed all travel requirements for entering the country. The government highlighted that this decision was made as result of increased vaccination levels in Ireland and the European Union and information on the COVID-19 omicron variant.
