 Statement by Simon Coveney TD, Minister for Foreign Affairs on Lifting of Travel restrictions
“I welcome the announcement today by the White House that from November the US will lift travel restrictions on those who are fully vaccinated. This is something that we, along with our EU colleagues, have been advocating for a considerable time and we have alerted the US Administration to the high levels of vaccination within Ireland. Ensuring ease of travel is vital for protecting our strong connections across the Atlantic, be that in business, academia, tourism or family connections. With 90% of Irish adults now fully vaccinated, I know this will come as very good news for many in Ireland, the Irish living in the United States, as well as our American friends with links to Ireland and the rest of Europe.”
