Introduction of Mandatory Hotel Quarantine in Ireland
On Thursday 1st April the Government of Ireland announced mandatory hotel quarantine for all passengers arriving into Ireland from Jordan after 04.00am Tuesday 6 April. All passengers are required to pre-book accommodation in a designated quarantine facility, and to pre-pay for their stay. The Embassy has extremely limited powers to provide exemptions from this requirement.

COVID 19 Update – Visa Service
With effect from 29 January 2021, the Department of Justice has temporarily ceased accepting new visa/ preclearance applications globally.
Increasing travel restrictions and the measures introduced as part of the Irish Government’s efforts to interrupt the transmission of COVID-19 means that travel may not be possible and even if possible is not advisable unless absolutely essential. It is currently against the law for any person (regardless of nationality or passport) to travel within Ireland for non-essential purposes and people can be fined for doing so. Enforcement of this has been strongly increased over the last few days.
In the meantime, only certain emergency cases will be processed. Further information is available on the website of Immigration Service Delivery.
For emergency visa applications, please contact us directly so that we can guide you through the application process and advise you how to submit your documentation.
