NI Executive Update 27th May 21 - Easing of Travel Restrictions within the Common Travel Area (CTA)

Posted 28 May, 2021

We are delighted with the announcement yesterday from the NI Executive on the easing of travel restrictions within the CTA. The previous guidance was complicated and confusing. NITA campaigned for it to be urgently reviewed and worked with government to highlight the challenges this was having on the Northern Ireland Travel and Tourism industry including travellers.

With self isolating no longer required, this is a key step forward in tourism recovery now that leisure travellers can come to Northern Ireland without having to quarantine. We can now begin to market to the GB and ROI market and begin the recovery process.

It is important to note that there is still health advice in place with regard to the self-administered lateral flow tests. These are free of charge and can be ordered fromthe NI Direct website
