  Covid test required  
  No mandatory quarantine  
  Proof of relationship     VISA     Medical and Travel Insurance  

After almost ten months my partner and I were able to reunite in South Africa. I travelled from Dublin via London Heathrow with British Airways.

I presented my negative COVID test (taken within 72hours of departure) at check in in Dublin. At Heathrow I was asked for my visa, COVID test and proof of medical insurance which were heavily inspected. Upon arrival my temperature was taken and I submitted a health questionnaire when disembarking.
