Travel Advice for Latin America

In recent days, emergency responses to the COVID-19 crisis in many countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have included restrictions of flights from Europe, new quarantine arrangements in Central America, and restrictions affecting admissions of Irish people already travelling in the region to other countries in Latin America.

As of 16 March, Irish citizens non-resident in Colombia will not be permitted to enter Colombia unless they are in transit to a final destination outside the country.

There are no direct flights to Ireland from Latin America. Therefore, given the uncertainty around transatlantic travel options into Ireland we strongly recommend that Irish travellers make early arrangements to travel out of /from the region.

Moreover, we very strongly advise against any further travel into the region until the COVID-19 crisis has been contained there.
