All passengers coming into Ireland to require negative test result

COVID-19: People arriving in England need negative tests to enter country from Friday New test rule for UK arrivals from Friday

The United States will reportedly require those traveling to the US from global flights to provide proof of a negative coronavirus test prior to boarding, according to a Tuesday report from the Wall Street Journal. However, they must adhere to the local public health guidance.

The new rules apply to nearly every country in the world, including those on England's travel corridor list, and further compliance checks are due to be conducted by Border Force staff.

According to the UK' s Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, "inbound passengers arriving by boat, plane or train will have to take a test up to 72 hours before departing the country they are in, to help protect against the new strains of coronavirus such as those seen in Denmark and South Africa".

The new requirement will come into effect from Saturday, January 16, and the PCR test in question will need to be taken within 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland.

The move further bolsters existing protective measures which helped to safely enable global travel previous year, with self-isolation for new arrivals and travel corridors remaining critical in reducing the risk of imported cases from high-risk countries. The new measures are created to try to prevent travellers from bringing in newer forms of the virus that scientists say can spread more easily.

In preparation for travel, passengers will need to find a testing provider which meets the standards set out on by the UK Government, the majority of which will be Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests.

It requires travelers to be tested within three days before leaving for the US and to provide written documentation of a negative result. The scheme requires a test to be taken on or after the fifth full day since leaving a country not on the travel corridor list.

Canada said December 30 that it would require air travelers entering the country to obtain a negative test.

There are issues with testing availability and capacity, so some countries will initially be exempt.

New arrivals who flout the rules will face a minimum £500 fine, while the operator who transported them will also be fined.

This was previously the case with those coming into the country from the United Kingdom and South Africa, but it has now been extended to all foreign countries.

Those who travel indirectly from South Africa must self-isolate for 10 days.

Passengers from Antigua and Barbuda, St Lucia and Barbados will be exempt until 4am on January 21, again due to lack of testing infrastructure in those countries.
