INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL 

The rules for travelling to Northern Ireland depends on your vaccination status and the countries you’re travelling from or passing through.

The return of a red list in Northern Ireland means that the system is separated into two sets of rules for international travel.  They follow a system of ‘red list countries’ and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world, referred to as ‘non-red list countries’.

The status of international countries is reviewed every three weeks and is subject to change if cases suddenly rise in any particular country.
