'A very positive step' - Irish Travel Agents Association

Covid entry requirements lifted for travellers entering US

The easing of entry requirements into the United States has been welcomed by the Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA).

According to the organisation, covid entry requirements have been lifted for international travellers entering the USA, after  one of the longest travel testing requirements since the beginning of covid-19.

Longford trio on PUP fraud charges to learn fate

A car dealer who is subject to a €4.9 million tax judgement and charged together with his wife and brother with multiple counts of alleged Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP) fraud is to learn next month whether the case will be heard at District or more serious Circuit Court level.


With the easing of restrictions, travellers will no longer be required to present a negative covid-19 test regardless of their vaccination status or citizenship.

Pat Dawson, CEO of the ITAA stated: “The easing of entry requirements into the United States is greatly welcomed throughout the travel industry. There is a big demand for US travel, especially for families travelling to visit family and friends that they have not seen since before the pandemic to destinations or to such destinations as Orlando or the west coast.”

“With Dublin Airport and the Passport Office resolving issues from the pandemic coupled with the United States easing of entry requirements, all barriers for travelling to the US are more or less now gone. This is a very positive step.”
