Hammond Tours is beyond excited to report that Ireland is now open for leisure travel! The Emerald Isle opened its borders for travel on July 19, 2021. Our trusted Ireland partners have come to us with AMAZING deals to get our clients traveling again. 

Current Guidelines: The current arrival information into Ireland for international travelers is as follows.  Starting July 19th, for those that are fully vaccinated, you will not be required to take a test, or quarantine or self-isolate– you will just need proof of vaccination.  Currently those unvaccinated will be required to take a PCR test taken 72 hours before arrival and also self-isolate and take another test on arrival.  The self-isolation can last as long as 14 days, but you can come out as soon as 5 days with another negative PCR test. 

Children: Children aged 11 or under will not require any pre- departure tests to travel to Ireland.  Children 12-17 will be required to present a pre-departure negative PCR (taken in previous 72 hours before arrival).  Children of any age, traveling with accompanying vaccinated or recovered adults will not be required to self-quarantine post arrival. 

COVID-19 PASSENGER LOCATOR FORM: All travelers entering Ireland, no matter of vaccination status, must complete the passenger locator at least 48 hours prior to arrival.  The information provided may be used to contact you in the next 14 days to verify the details given on the form.  Link to form: https://cvd19plf-prod1.powerappsportals.com/en-us?referrer=http://www.gov.ie/onlinelocatorform/

Travel to or from Northern Ireland: There will be no restrictions on travel to or from Northern Ireland. 

Please note, these are the current and initial guidelines for international travel to resume.  We expect this to be a developing process as time goes on and we are hopeful the isolation for unvaccinated travelers will be dropped.  That being said, the easiest most hassle-free way to travel to Ireland or any other country moving forward will be to be vaccinated.  For more detailed information on entry please visit https://www.rte.ie/news/2021/0719/1236010-travel-eu-explainer/

As needed, we will update these guidelines for entry
