Tourism Ireland Welcomes Lifting Of COVID Testing Requirements In The US

By Dave Simpson

Tourism Ireland has welcomed the lifting of pre-departure COVID testing requirements for air travellers to the United States.

"Really Good News"

Acting chief executive of Tourism Ireland Siobhan McManamy stated, "The announcement that the United States will end COVID-19 testing requirements for air travellers from midnight [on Sunday 12 June] is really good news. This means that the last remaining barrier to fully opening the US market for international travel is now lifted.

"Extremely Important For Tourism"

McManamyadded, "The US market is extremely important for tourism to the island of Ireland; before the pandemic, in 2019, we welcomed 1.7 million American visitors, whose visits delivered revenue of €1.6 billion for the economy. Our message is that Ireland is open for business again and we cannot wait to welcome back visitors from the United States."
