DUBLIN, Ireland: As Ireland opens up the country to tourism again, it has announced that vaccinated tourists from India will be granted 90-day visas.

The Embassy of Ireland in India has released a statement noting that travelers from India will be admitted after producing proof of vaccination, recovery from COVID-19, or a negative PCR test to Immigration Control at their port of entry.

Also, all remaining COVID-19 restrictions on entry visa and pre-clearance processing, which were brought in as a necessary interim measure to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, have now been lifted, the statement said.

The Embassy also requested that Indian tourists be aware of the current visa processing times, as it is not possible to expedite times for processing visas.

Times required for processing visas include 25 days to issue a visit visa, 20 days for a study visa, and 10 days for a business visa.

According to the new policy, fully vaccinated Indian travelers will not be required to submit to mandatory hotel quarantine for 14 days after Ireland removed India from the list of Designated States for Mandatory Hotel Quarantine in late August.

Indian travelers will be required to display a negative RT-PCR result from a test taken within 72 hours, prior to arrival in the country.

Additionally, requirements will allow Indian travelers to enter Ireland 15 days after receiving their final dose of the vaccine.
