this move will take effect Monday at 5 p.m. and travelers must quarantine themselves at home or in other accommodation.
Starting Monday, fully vaccinated vacationers arriving from Amber countries will no longer have to self-quarantine, although they will still need to comply with necessary testing requirements.
However, this will not apply to France following the continued presence of cases of the Beta variant, which was first identified in South Africa.
Anyone who has been in France in the past 10 days will need to be quarantined on arrival in Northern Ireland and will need to be tested on day 2 and day 8, regardless of their vaccination status.
This includes anyone vaccinated entirely in the UK who transits through France from a green country or another amber country to reach Northern Ireland.
