The Irish Authorities continue to advise against all non-essential travel overseas with the exception of those countries on the designated “Green List”
From 21 September, Germany will be on Ireland’s ‘Green List’ of countries with a 14-day cumulative incidence of 25 or less per 100,000. This means that Germany is exempt from the Irish Government’s advice to avoid non-essential travel, and that persons entering Ireland from Germany will not be requested to restrict their movements.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade issues & regularly updates travel advice for a large number of countries across the globe, including for Germany, which can be viewed here.
