Meanwhile, changes to Northern Ireland’s international travel restrictions are now in force from Monday morning.

The past traffic light system has been scrapped from October 4.

The rules for international travel have changed from the red, amber and green traffic light system to a “red list of countries”.

The rules for travelling to Northern Ireland from countries and territories not on the red list will depend on your vaccination position.

To qualify as “fully vaccinated” you must have been fully vaccinated for at the minimum 14 days either:

  • under an approved vaccination programme in the UK, Europe, USA or the UK vaccination programme overseas
  • with a complete course of the Oxford/ AstraZeneca, Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna or Janssen vaccines from a applicable public health body
  • under a formally approved COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial in the US, Canada and Australia and have proof of participation (digital or paper-based) from a public health body
