Hi, we are three friends planning to go to Dublin from the 10th of December to the 13th of December. We are aware of all the requirements for entering the Republic of Ireland but we saw today that from the 3rd of December, it is compulsory to carry a non-detected COVID-19 test within 48 hours before arrival.  As we are from Spain, we have our Covid Certificate from the UE, which shows that we are vaccinated. Is it still necessary to make a COVID test even though we have our UE COVID Certificate? Thank you!

Hello Juan,

It is great to know you and your friends are thinking of traveling to Ireland. 

The new rules indeed state that even if you are vaccinated, you need to have a negative result from a PCR test taken a maximum of 72 hours before arriving in Ireland or an antigen test taken maximum 48 hours before. This means that when you arrive in Ireland you will need to present your Digital Covid Certificate and the negative test result. You can read more about this new restriction on the Traveler's Health page and the Ireland Government's website. 

Wishing you safe travels,

David
