Ireland to operate EU Digital Covid Cert from 19 July
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has announced non-essential travel will resume on 19 July as Ireland will operate the EU Digital Covid Cert.
Speaking during a national address on plans for reopening society, Mr Martin said he understood the importance of the aviation and tourism sectors.
He added that international connectivity was critical to Ireland's place in the world, with many jobs and livelihoods dependent on it.
Tonight, the Department of Health confirmed that Belgium, France, Luxembourg and the US have been removed from the Mandatory Hotel Quarantine list.
Mr Martin earlier said he understood "very clearly" the need to get international travel back in a safe and sustainable way.
He said: "This is an important time for us all. After the trauma of the last 15 months, we are finally taking definite steps toward enjoying normal times with friends and loved ones again."
