We are operating our ‘Travel Safe’ programme to ensure the safety and comfort of both passengers and crew on all our services. In accordance with public health guidelines, it is recommended to wear face coverings while onboard our ships for the safety of all. In French and Irish ports and when in French waters, the wearing of face coverings is mandatory. See what we are doing here.
What you need to do before traveling to IRELAND FROM FRANCE:
Please go to www.gov.ie , for the latest information on travel requirements to Ireland. The requirements for arrivals from France into Ireland are as follows:
You must complete an online Passenger Locator Form (PLF) in advance of travel. Passengers who cannot produce a receipt for a passenger locator form will be denied boarding. Children should be included in the PLF of their accompanying adult. Only international transport workers in possession of an Annex 3 certificate, drivers of HGVs in the course of their duties and diplomats are exempt from the requirement to complete the passenger locator form. Further information and the form are available here – www.gov.ie/locatorform .
In addition to a completed passenger locator form, all passengers (except those exempt) must have one of the following:
1. Evidence of having been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency. If you have valid proof of vaccination (see above), no travel-related testing or quarantine will be necessary.
2. Certification as having recovered from COVID-19 in the previous 180 days
3. If you do not have valid proof of vaccination or recovery, you will need to:
• present evidence of a negative result from a RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the country
If you receive a negative result from a RT-PCR test taken from day 5 onwards after arrival into Ireland, you will be able to leave quarantine.
Children aged 11 and under are not required to have a RT-PCR for travel. Children aged 12 to 17 must have a RT-PCR Test, vaccination or recovery certificate to travel.
Ireland is now a part of the EU Digital COVID Certificate for travel originating within the EU/EEA. The Digital COVID Certificate will make it easier to travel to and from these countries and will be accepted as proof of vaccination, recovery or negative test.
Visa requirements for citizens of non-EU/CTA countries may change. You may now require a Visa or Transit Visa. See here for more details.
