Hello, good morning,

We are 2 Spaniards (with full COVID19 vaccination) who are going to travel by plane to the Republic of Ireland on August 14 and we are going to stay on the island for 15 days.

Our idea is to visit Northern Ireland during the trip

We would like to know if anyone can help us about the restrictions that apply to enter NI by road (from Republic of Ireland).

Are these restrictions different if it has been 10 days since my arrival in the CTA (Common Travel Area)?

If we have not misunderstood:
   1) If I travel to NI before 10 days the amber list rules apply.
   2) If I travel to NI after 10 days the CTA rules apply.

Is this the case?

Thank you very much for your help.

I hope to enjoy the trip very much!

Antonio

Hello Antonio,

Welcome to our Community forum.

The regulations about traveling have recently changed so that there are new rules in place right now. 

From August the 2nd, if you’re coming to Northern Ireland from an amber list country (like Spain) and have been fully vaccinated in the USA or Europe you will not have to quarantine or take a day eight test on arrival. However, passengers are still required to: 

-provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken up to three days before departure
-book and pay for a day two COVID-19 PCR test
-complete a UK passenger locator form within  48 hours of departure

You can find more information about these new regulation on this page dedicated to travelling to Northern Ireland and on our article about travel health, where you can also find useful information about the Republic of Ireland and the current travel situation.

Remember that we also have a dedicated Spanish channel, so you can write us in Spanish if you wish to do so! 

I hope this helps! 😊

Valentina

Buenos días, gracias por la respuesta Valentina.

Aun así, nos gustaría saber más sobre lo que se indica en la web  https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control, dónde dice: “Las pruebas de detección del coronavirus (COVID-19) y las reglas de cuarentena que debe seguir dependen de dónde haya estado en los 10 días antes de su llegada”; derivando posteriormente a un link de Irlanda del Norte.

En nuestro caso, estaremos en la República de Irlanda los 10 días antes de la llegada a Irlanda del Norte, por lo tanto, entiendo que debo tener en cuenta las normas que se aplican dentro de la CTA (Common Travel Area) (web: https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/coronavirus-covid-19-travelling-within-common-travel-area); y no la de mi país de origen (en mi caso España). ¿Es esto cierto?

Gracias.

Antonio

Hola Antonio:

Esa normativa, así como la encuentras en el sitio web oficial, sí está en vigor a fecha de hoy, 3 de agosto y es aplicable a tu situación. Sin embargo, te recomendamos que vuelvas a consultar esas páginas cuando se acerque la fecha de tu viaje y que estés preparado para adaptar tu plan en el caso en que la normativa tuviese que cambiar. 

Saludos, 

Valentina
