From 19 July, general travel advice from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is to travel safely and in accordance with public health guidance and restrictions, and to always check the country specific advice provided on the dfa.ie website.
Also from that date, Ireland will operate the EU Digital COVID Certificate for travel originating within the European Economic Area (EEA), which includes EU Member States plus Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway (but does not include the UK). The current status the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has designated to these countries is ‘exercise a high degree of caution’.
While the Digital COVID Certificate will make it easier to travel to and from these countries, entry requirements and rules are not standardised. The government advice is to always check what measures and entry rules are in place for each destination before you travel.
If you travel to a country designated as ‘exercise a high degree of caution’ on your date of travel, then you will be covered as per the overseas benefits on your health insurance plan and our standard terms and conditions will apply.
Countries that have been designated as ‘do not travel’ or ‘avoid non-essential travel’ are excluded from cover, even if you determine travel is essential.
