New changes for international travel to this country will come into effect tomorrow.

Overseas passengers will have to show proof of a negative covid 19 test result.

The Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says these new travel regulations which take effect tomorrow, are due to the emergence of the Omicron variant.

Passengers without proof of vaccination or recovery must show a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of arrival.

Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result will be checked pre-departure and may be subject to checks on arrival.

People who arrive without a negative test result are required to home quarantine and take a PCR test within 36 hours of arrival.
