Hey there, will be travelling from Belfast to Spain with Jet2, and a bit confused about whether Jet2 will accept my EU covid cert? Any recent experiences please. I know I will need antigen test on way back, but also wondering how to avoid having to book Day 2 test on return. Thanks!
Fully vaxxed is only 7 days for Pfizer, OP should have their DCC by then and will be able to use it.
That’s great to hear. My mistake.
Hi, I'm going to Ibiza next Tuesday. Now, I'm planning on travelling to Liverpool from Sunday to Monday. As far as I know I only need to be fully vaccinated and to have a travel locator form for each destination. My question is does being in England one day before affect my travels to ibiza??
Has anyone requested an early 2nd dose vaccine appt from the HSE (25 days fter 1st instead of 28) I want to be fully vaccinated before I fly. Also can I fly on the morning of the 14th day? Or do I have to wait till the 15th day to be fully vaccd. Its the Moderna vaccine.
My wife did. They ignored it. She got it through local GP 21 days after first dose.
I'm now 28 days and still not received my second dose appointment, I've rang the helpline and they said they will only escalate once you are are 28 days plus 5, I know lots getting called on day 25/26
Came back from Poland and Cyprus. My HSE vaccination card was accepted everywhere without any problem. Last night in Dublin airport I used self service border control gate. Just scanned my passport and left airport. Easiest of all travels ever.
Does anyone know of travel insurance that covers the cost of mandatory quarantine accommodation within the EU?
I think that depends on the country you travel to, Ireland consider you vaccinated 7 days after the Pfizer but not 100% if that covers you for entering the country or if it's just internally.
A lot of European countries don't consider you fully vaccinated until 14 days after 2nd Pfizer jab, Spain for example
Sure Faceman, you should just ask the HSE to "change the goalposts" from 90% to 5%. Sure then there would be no more virus. Problem immediately solved?
Came through Dublin arrivals T1 at around 11 this morning. Pleasant surprise to have the queue moving at a reasonable pace. Wasn't asked for PCR or PLF,just had I been in Switzerland for more than 14 days.
Zurich wasn't great,queue of people waiting to get onboard being asked for PCR and PLF. Plane ended up being nearly 40mins late taking off.
The airport was much busier than when I was back two months ago. It's great to see.
Unfortunately not, no travel insurance company will cover people for Covid related illness or related issues.
Dont be ridiculous, herd immunity at 5% is impossible but you already know that and you're using a stupid argument to make a flawed point.
It is 7 days according to the HSE website. Each country can decide for themselves though, some seem to be immediately after second dose, some 7-days, others 14. My worry is the airline who need to do the checks too, not sure if they will all know the rules for each destination
When entering Ireland with an EU DCC (negative PCR) , do you still need to fill in Passenger Locator form? Reopen Europa and Gov.ie seem to conflict on that.
105 in hospital
Wrong thread! 😅
I can tell you that the airline I was on last night would not accept it. I had a PCR test done anyway as it was uncertain. They also insisted on the PLF which was not requested in Sunlin airport.
I'm flying to England tomorrow.
I have my Vaccination card and DCC so I thought I was sound for travelling.
However upon checking in for my flight o have just spotted this on the Ryanair app;
"Everyone entering England from overseas (including UK nationals and residents) must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 3 days of departure to England."
It's too late for me to get a test and results back now.
Am I screwed?
Anyone travelled through northern Ireland from abroad to get home recently. Any checks anywhere for a pcr or a passenger locator for travelling on to the republic when you arrive into the north or at any point after that? I'm aware an antigen is necessary to travel into northern Ireland
Has anyone used gosafe48? I booked an antigen but they seem a lot cheaper and I can’t find much online about them. Are they legit??
How likely is it someone from the HSE will call to see if you are isolating? I have the sinopharm vaccine and it's a joke that it's not accepted. It's frustrating to think I'll have to isolate for the 5 days despite taking the measures that were available to me at the earliest opportunity.
Yes they will Face, but not hotel quarantine costs, but if you end up in Hospital they will cover you unless you travelled to a country that DFA advises against travelling to.
Lots of anecdotal evidence that they accept the HSE card. The Portugese government is due to announce changes to restrictions next week, so I'd check back later in the week as goal posts might be moved again.
Yes they’re legit, I’m booked in with them I know others have used them and no problems.
Even with the DCC? I will be flying next week with the DCC 9 days post second shot. Even checked with the Irish embassy in country of departure (Germany). Don't want to pay the 160€ it would cost me for a PCR just in case if I can avoid it
Nope, scroll further down the page you linked it says :
You do not need to take a test if you began your journey to England from:
And not only that, some travel insurance companies will pay out for extended hotel stays if you happen to test positive. Multitrip for example.
(Only happened to read about it today in the Irish Mirror online. It’s down at the bottom of this scaremongering headlined article)
I was bang on 14 days on the DCC and had a PCR just in case. Origin airport and Frankfurt in Lufthansa were more interested in the PCR test than they DCC. As I had the PCR I was not fighting on the DCC but it was not accepted at first and I quickly for sanity purposes produced the negative PCR. Perhaps they are or the view that Ireland is outside the DCC regime.
