Ireland is now welcoming Canadians with valid proof of vaccination against COVID-19 and eliminating the need for them to undergo travel-related testing or quarantine measures.

Before arrival, Canadians will need to complete a, which will be checked prior to departure to Ireland by the relevant carrier. Visitors mays also be asked to provide the vaccination certificate indicated on their form. Upon arrival in Ireland, spot checks will be carried out on proof of vaccinations and negative RT-PCR tests as appropriate.
As of July 19, children between the ages of 12 and 17 must have a negative RT-PCR test to travel into Ireland, even with fully vaccinated or recovered adults. This requirement is waived for children under 12.
