Breach of PCR test rules at Dublin airport and ports; 140 cases in a week

DUBLIN: The number of people travelling illegally without a COVID negative certificate or PCR test is rising.

Within a week, 110 people were fined for violating PCR test rules at Dublin airport alone. The restrictions came into effect on January 16. According to the Department of Justice and Equality, there are 140 such cases in all ports and airports.

All passengers arriving in Ireland by air or ferry are required to present evidence of a negative/not detected PCR test taken up to 72 hours prior to arrival.

Most of these cases include people who fail to provide a test result and people who provide a test result beyond the 72-hour limit.

A department spokesman said An Garda Síochána will prepare a file for the Director of Public Prosecutions about 110 violations at Dublin airport.

The government yesterday announced that all visa-free short term travel from South Africa and South America have been suspended until March 5.
