Travelers into Ireland will no longer need a Covid-19 test if they are fully vaccinated against or have recovered from Covid-19, said the Irish government on Wednesday.

The decision will take effect from Thursday.

From Thursday, fully vaccinated or recovered travelers into Ireland are only required to present evidence of a valid Digital COVID Certificate or other acceptable proof showing vaccination or recovery status, said the statement.

Prior to this, travelers into Ireland had to provide valid proof of a negative antigen test result taken within 48 hours or a PCR test taken within 72 hours before arrival in response to the emergence of the Omicron variant, Xinhua reported.

To date, there have been a total of 5,952 deaths related to COVID-19 in Ireland, including 40 deaths reported in the past week, said the department in a statement.
