It's really because the site is now unusable 😂
Flew in last night from Gatwick to Shannon. You need to upload your digital covid pass or your pcr test result
Ideal thank you.
I got vaxxed in UK so I've uploaded the doc from the nhs app to say I'm fully vaxxed. Hopefully that'll be enough.
Hi, planning on heading to Valencia at the start of August. My wife and I will be fully vaccinated by then so will have the DCC. Both kids (14 & 12) will need tests to get into Spain and back into Ireland. Have Randox booked for the way out so happy enough there. My question is for the way back. There's plenty of labs doing PCR tests in Valencia and will email the results. So far I haven't found one that's issuing a QR code on the PDF. Does that mean you can't use the results as a DCC or does it matter? I can't find a clear answer on how you get a DCC from a negative test in Spain if you're not resident. Really hope this hasn't been answered 20 times here already but I can't see it.
The travel maps won't look pretty when updated later. Ireland edging into Spain/Portugal territory for cases.
Central Europe still looking very good.
You don’t need the DCC to travel. Proof of negative PCR test will be enough for your return journey.
Have a great holiday
Didnt fly to UK flew to Spain and uploaded the documents. Then when you print your boarding pass it says on it 'covid documents uploaded' and they were not checked in Dublin, just saved time by doing it, not a requirement though as coming back to Dublin i didnt upload them.
Anyone get a PCR test in France for returning to Ireland? Whats the rough cost of one over there? Its not very clear from google.
Did not get one but I am French and I read it in the news some time ago: 49euros. I think it is a standard price anywhere you go.
Great, thanks for the heads up. Guess I was hoping the DCC would be more joined up but it's early days. Do you attach the PCR results in the passenger locator form or just show them the email?
Also interested. As I've booked them for the kids on Friday.
Edit: Thanks to the previous poster for the update
Flying home from Portugal shortly from Faro airport. Just confirming what others have said. At the boarding desk Ryanair are accepting the govt vaccine cards if you are fully vaccinated. No need for DCC or PCR test.
How is the algarve? Much in the way of masks and restrictions being reinforced? Thinking about a visit in 5 or 6 weeks!
A friend of mine went to GoSafe48 and said they were amazing. No queues and results inside 4 hours. I will go there before i travel to Croatia and then I believe its nearly €90 in Croatia for a PCR to come back to Ireland
Hey again everyone.
I completed my covid-19 test with letsgetchecked. for anyone who is considering:
I ordered the test in advance.
Took the test around 10:00am. First scheduled collection with UPS, then completed the test. A driver collected the test at around 10:20. The test arrived at lab 7am next day for processing. Got the results at 13:30 same day they arrived at lab.
It was a RT-PCR test.
If you don't hear from me then I'll be off holidaying, otherwise it wasn't accepted 😀
I haven’t flown home yet so I don’t know what the Irish passenger locator form looks like. But from what I’ve read the email with the results is perfect.
We didn’t have DCCs coming out and the email with the negative result was enough.
Is that your way of saying you miss my ranting?
everything is open. Masks indoors when not seated. Last drinks in pubs is 10:30, so if you are planning a session you need to start a bit early. If indoor at the weekends you need to show a DGC or negative antigen test, you get them in the pharmacy for €3
some areas are very quiet, but some are very busy. Quinta do Lago is jammed, busier than a typical summer, Vilamoura is ticking over, Albufeira is pretty quiet, but that could all change this week.
Thanks for the update. We are travelling to Lagos in 3.5 weeks so hopefully all will go well.
Stayed in Alvor for a week, hotel/hotel pool was quiet enough. Beach was busy..main strip with restaurants etc noticeably busier since Monday with places closing at 10.30. Would recommend.
So I'm flying to Madrid via Ryanair tomorrow. I checked in for my flight 2 days ago but I didn't declare my Covid test results as I didn't have them.
I have my negative results now, is there a way to input this so it appears on my boarding pass?
Make sure you update your Spanish FCS form with it.
RE: uploading documents to Ryanair, doing this only means they will appear in the Ryanair app on your phone, which is convenient but not essential for travel. Whether you upload them or not they are not validated or checked until you are boarding the flight.
Oh Ireland, you have been a very naughty boy
Yep I've done that already. I've uploaded both my LetsGetchecked report results and the Spanish FCS form to the Ryanair documents section but my boarding passes still says "no Covid documentation uploaded". Will just go in early to the Ryanair check in desk hopefully get that changed
also another one just went to book a Covid test in Seville on the Monday as I'm comin home on the Tuesday but it said all appointments are booked up.
I've had my first Pfizer vaccine jab and obviously the PCR test coming over. What are my options?
This is less a covid question and rather a brexit one, does anyone know if i can travel from uk to ireland on an irish passport card, has it changed since brexit? I've not been able to find a clear answer on their site and their chat/phonelines are closed
Of course you can, nothing has changed.
The amount of questions and reports involving Spain are pretty surprising, it's not my choice of destination looking at that map 😃
I'll be heading to a different part of Europe with the paper vaccine record, wish me luck haha
