COVID testing for passengers flying into Ireland delayed
The Government has delayed the introduction of mandatory COVID tests for international passengers arriving into the country.
The measure was supposed to come into effect today but has been delayed by 48 hours.
It requires all arrivals into the country to produce proof of a negative antigen test taken within the previous 48 hours.
Alternatively, a negative PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours can also be used.
The Justice Minister says the delay relates to the signing of regulations and was not intentional.
