Advice on Entering Ireland from Abroad:

The Irish Authorities require anyone coming into Ireland, apart from Northern Ireland, to restrict their movements for 14 days. This includes citizens and residents returning to Ireland.

Restricting your movements means staying indoors in one location and avoiding contact with other people and social situations as much as possible. To ensure that this is being observed all passengers arriving to Ireland from overseas are obliged to complete a mandatory Public Health Passenger Locator Form and to submit it to the relevant authority at their port of entry. Exemptions are in place for providers of essential supply chain services such as hauliers, pilots and maritime staff. Check the Irish Government Advice Page for full information on these requirements. Further advice for people who have recently returned from abroad is available from the HSE.

For all other COVID-19 related travel queries, please call the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's dedicated advice centre on + 353 1 613 1733.
