Which places no longer need vaccination checks for Irish tourists?

Ireland has become the latest European destination to lift all Covid travel restrictions, joining more than a dozen others.

On March 6, Ireland became the first country to remove all Covid-19-related travel restrictions, with incoming passengers no longer needed to produce confirmation of vaccination, recovery, or a negative PCR test result, as had previously been the case.

Several European countries have also relaxed the rest of their Covid-related regulations, and although they are not among the top 10 destinations for spring travelers, they may be worth considering if you are looking for the most straightforward vacation imaginable.

Covid travel restrictions continue to be in place in popular tourist destinations such as Spain, Portugal, and Italy, but the countries listed below have removed both entry requirements such as tests and proof of vaccination, as well as the majority of their rules on the ground in their respective countries (although masks can still recommended or advised in certain spaces, such as on public transport).

Switzerland and the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland) have likewise lifted all outstanding travel restrictions related to Covid.

Irish authorities said earlier this month that they had withdrawn the last of its Covid-related regulations for international visitors, including the obligation to fill out a passenger location form. Travelers entering the country, regardless of whether or not they have received a pandemic vaccine, will no longer be required to deal with pandemic-related documentation, either before they leave the country or upon their arrival. In a statement, the government said that “as of Sunday, March 6, 2022, tourists visiting Ireland would not be required to present evidence of vaccination, proof of recovery, or a negative PCR test result upon arrival.” It is not necessary for travelers to Ireland to undergo post-arrival testing or to be subjected to quarantine restrictions.”

Earlier this month, Norway became one of the first countries to remove all of its Covid limitations in one fell swoop, doing so on February 12. “You will be able to go to Norway starting on Saturday, February 12, 2022, without having to worry about anything other than having a wonderful time!” the tourism board said on its website. According to the website, “There are no procedures for testing, quarantine, or registration upon arrival in Norway.”
