IMPACT – MEDIUM
Under a change that took effect Jan. 16, all passengers arriving into Ireland are required to have a negative/“not detected” result from a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test carried out no more than 72 hours before arrival in Ireland.
Arrivals from Great Britain and South Africa will continue to require a negative/“not detected” result from a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test and must continue to isolate for 14 days in Ireland, even if they take a second test after arrival.
Analysis & Comments: The Irish government has made this decision as part of their efforts to mitigate the spread of the new variant of COVID-19. Employers should consider that this change may cause delays to intended start dates of their potential employees, if the employment cannot be carried out from home. All travelers arriving to Ireland must also continue to complete a Passenger Locator Form prior to arriving at port of entry in Ireland. If you have employees or potential new hires who may be impacted by the changes described, please contact the Deloitte immigration team to assist.
