Latest travel alert

Extreme Weather in the Caribbean Region

The Atlantic hurricane season generally runs from June to November each year and can also affect the eastern and southern USA with heavy rain, flooding and extremely high winds.

Citizens with plans to be in the affected region during this period should consider the need to travel based on information relating to extreme weather projections. 

Hurricane Irma passed over the Caribbean on 7 to 10 September causing severe flooding and damage to buildings and infrastructure across the region, including popular tourist areas. Some areas may still be without mains water supply or electricity, so extra care is needed during hours of darkness. Airports have reopened and flights have resumed but there may be delays.

You should follow the advice of the local authorities and your hotel or tour operator.

If you have a holiday booked for a future date you should liaise with your tour operator or contact your hotel to check if there has been any hurricane damage/whether the hotel is open and functional. There may be problems with utilities and services for the foreseeable future while the recovery is underway.

There is currently an outbreak of Zika Virus (a dengue-like mosquito-borne disease) in Central and South America and the Caribbean. Irish Citizens are advised to follow guidance available on the website of the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC).

Because there is no Irish Embassy or Consulate in the Puerto Rico, we are limited in the help we can offer you in an emergency situation.

You can also contact the Embassies or Consulates of other EU countries for emergency consular assistance, advice and support.

Dlíthe agus gnásanna áitiúla

Comhairle phraiticiúil

  • Léigh an chomhairle taistil go léir agus faigh comhairle áitiúil nuair a bhaineann tú ceann scríbe amach
  • Cuimhnigh go mbainfidh na dlíthe áitiúla leatsa, mar chuairteoir, agus nach mór duit cloí leo
  • Bí measúil ar nósanna, ar thraidisiúin agus ar chleachtais áitiúla, mar go mb’fhéidir go bhféachfaí ar an gcaoi a n-iompraíonn tú tú féin go bhfuil tú as bealach, naimhdeach nó go bhfuil tú ag briseadh an dlí.

Check with your doctor well in advance of travelling to see if you need any vaccinations for this country.

Eolas Breise

Riachtanais iontrála (víosa/pas)

Mura bhfuil tú cinnte faoi riachtanais iontrála na tíre, lena n-áirítear maidir le víosaí agus cúrsaí inimirce eile, cuir ceist ar do ghníomhaire taistil nó déan teagmháil leis an Ambasáid nó leis an gConsalacht is gaire duit de chuid na tíre.

Féadfaidh tú seiceáil leo freisin cén tréimhse bailíochta nach mór a bheith ag do phas.

Sláinte

Seiceáil le do dhochtúir i bhfad roimh thaisteal ar cheart duit aon vacsaíniú a fháil sula dtéann tú chun na tíre.

Tuilleadh comhairle taistil
