If you have visited any countries on the red lists for England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland in the previous 10 days you will need to follow the rules on Managed Hotel Quarantine in England, Scotland or Northern Ireland (if this is your first port of entry into the CTA) before you travel to Ireland. There are separate restrictions in place in Wales. Please see rules for travel and transit in EnglandScotlandWales and Northern Ireland.

If you’re using a passport to enter Ireland, it should be valid and in date. You should also check your air or sea carrier’s terms and conditions of travel. For journeys on the island of Ireland, British and Irish citizens do not require any travel documents when crossing the land border.

A Schengen visa or UK visa is not valid for travel to Ireland.


If you are a British or Irish citizen, find more information on travelling between the UK, Isle of Man, Guernsey, Jersey or Ireland under the Common Travel Area arrangements.
