FOI Request 20/098


The total amount of people the Department of Foreign, or Irish embassies around the world, have helped to return to Ireland due to the coronavirus pandemic - with a breakdown by country. 

The total amount of money the Department of Foreign Affairs has spent on repatriating Irish citizens from abroad back to Ireland due to the coronavirus pandemic, to include commercial flights, charter flights, hotel costs, etc. I would like a breakdown by each of these categories, and other categories, if applicable. In the case of charter flights, please provide the cost of each flight, where it was flying from, and how many people were on each flight.
