Just wanted to verify that the CDC vaccination card that is issued in the USA will be recognized by Irish hospitality venues when proof of vaccination is required. Also, will a photo of my card suffice or will I need to carry around my original? TIA!

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the question!

There is a lot of positivity regarding changes to the current travel and public health guidelines.  To keep up to date as you try to make plans, we'd suggest keeping an eye on our own Traveler's Health Page for all official resources. 

Regarding indoor dining and pubs, the government website on reopening of hospitality advises that non-EU DCC visitors will require physical proof of their vaccination status, so this will be the actual CDC vaccination card with the relevant information. A photo will not be adequate, you will also need proof of US residency such as your passport or driving license.

I hope this helps, where are you planning on visiting during your time with us?

Thanks for the prompt and clear response. I’ve been searching for clear guidance on proof of vax in restaurants for days and could only find information on landing in Ireland. I’d have to say I had already read the referred documents but no clear cut answer to my question… so thanks again!

I’m actually visiting my family for the first time in a couple of years. My dad passed away last year and my mother postponed the internment of his ashes until I could travel again. I started to worry that I would not be allowed join the post-ceremony dinner at a nearby hotel if they didn’t accept my CDC issued POV.

Cheers

Martin

Hello Martin,

I'm truly sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I hope you will find some peace after the ceremony. 

As the government website and Martin said, the original proof of vaccination along will an official photo ID will be sufficient to enter the venue. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you here on the island!

Best,
Antoine
