Travelling to Ireland during the COVID-19 Pandemic | Dublin Port

Effective from the 16th of January 2021, all passengers arriving into Ireland via Ports & Airports (except those arriving from Northern Ireland) are required to have a negative or ‘not detected’ result from a pre-departure COVID-19 RT-PCR test that was carried out no more than 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland for presenting to Customs officials.

This is a mandatory requirement. Passengers will be asked to present evidence of their negative/‘not detected’ result before boarding their airplane or ferry and will be denied boarding if they cannot produce such evidence.

Passengers who arrive in an Irish sea port or airport without evidence of a negative/‘not detected’ test result, or a valid exemption, commit an offence and may be subject to prosecution, punishable by a fine not exceeding €2,500 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or both.

International Transport Workers, including workers in aviation, maritime, and road haulage sectors are exempt from this requirement where they are travelling in the course of performing their duties.

Children aged 6 and under are also exempt from the testing requirement, although they are advised to restrict movements for 14 days. The responsible adult travelling with children aged 7 or older must ensure that those children have a negative/’not detected’ test result.


There are currently no Covid testing facilities within Dublin Port. Please see the HSE website for further information on Covid testing in Ireland HERE
