Important Information to Read before you Travel

In advance of your upcoming holiday, we have put together some important information for you to review.


Travelling overseas from Ireland

Please refer to the official website of the Department of Foreign Affairs for travel information, requirements and restrictions, here.

While travel requirements in relation to COVID-19 to enter Ireland have been removed, other EU and non-EU countries may still require travellers to hold either:

  • proof of vaccination
  • proof of recovery, or
  • a negative test result


Please ensure you complete all required documentation in advance of arriving at the airport for your departing flight. Failure to comply with your destination country’s requirements may result in you being refused entry, fines and return transport at your expense.


Each and every traveller must hold a current valid passport, including infants. Many countries (outside the EU) have an immigration requirement for a passport to remain valid for a minimum period (usually six months) beyond the period of your stay. There are no visa requirements for holders of EU passports to any of the EU destinations we feature; however, other nationalities must check with their respective Embassy or Consulate if a visa is required. Visas are required for various long haul destinations worldwide.   

You will find information regarding passport, visa and vaccination requirements for different destinations on the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website, here.  We strongly recommend that all travellers take time to read the information and note the advices offered.

Information submitted through the IATA website is not used to personally identify you, and is only used to provide personalised travel documentation information.

The IATA website also gives access to information on customs import and export regulations, airport departure taxes, and currency import and export restrictions.

Passengers are responsible for ensuring all required travel documents are complete and valid.



Travel to the USA

For the most up to date information please refer to the Department of Foreign Affairs website here

As of May 12th it will no longer be a requirement for international travellers entering the United States to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Until then the current requirements remain.

All passengers to the United States are required to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Only limited exceptions apply to this requirement.

Children under 18 are excepted from the vaccination requirement for Foreign National travellers.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is also issuing a Contract Tracing order requiring all airlines to track contact information that will allow public health officials to follow up with inbound air travellers who have potentially been infected or exposed to an infected individual.

It is mandatory for all travellers into the USA to have completed the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before boarding an aircraft or sea carrier to the United States.   Further details on the entry requirements can be found here.  Application process for an ESTA can be found here.
