International Travel into Ireland
At Everest Language School, we are delighted to announce that we are now accepting international students to our school in Dublin again! All temporary covid-19 visa restrictions have been removed by the Irish government.
If you have booked or are planning to book a course with us there are still some important things you need to know before travelling to Ireland.
Please see a list of frequently asked questions below
Is there any documentation I need to complete before travelling?
Yes, all passengers travelling into Ireland must complete a passenger locator form before travelling.
I’m travelling from a country on the list of designated countries, what should I do?
If you are travelling from a ‘designated country’, we strongly advise that you travel with proof of a recognised vaccine (listed below).
Before you travel to Ireland, you need to also have a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours before you arrive. This is the law.
You should also have a 2nd PCR test 5 to 7 days after you arrive.
You can book your test online from 2 days before you arrive and up to 4 days after you arrive.
You can book your test here.
You must continue to quarantine while you await the results of your test or for 14 days after travel. You may only end your period of quarantine if you receive written confirmation of a negative or ‘not detected’ RT-PCR test result taken no less than 5 days after arrival.
You must retain the written confirmation of your test result for at least 14 days.
Once you’ve received your negative result you can start studying with us!
Please note that as you may have to wait between 1 and 2 weeks, the first week or two (depending on how long you are required to self quarantine) will need to be taken as holiday weeks for your study visa.
I’m travelling from a designated country with an unrecognised vaccine, what should I do?
We do not advise travelling with an unrecognised vaccine as you may be obliged to enter Mandatory Hotel Quarantine at your own expense.
I’m travelling from a designated country and I’m not vaccinated, what should I do?
We do not advise travelling to Ireland unvaccinated until your country is taken off the list of designated countries.
I’m travelling from a country that’s not on the designated list or countries, do I need to quarantine?
It depends - if you have proof of a registered vaccination, there is no further quarantining or testing required.
If you do not have proof of a registered vaccination, you will need to also have a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours before you arrive, have a 2nd PCR test 5 to 7 days after you arrive, and self quarantine until you receive a negative result.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you to Everest, and if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate ask.
