Advice on Entering Ireland from Abroad:

The Irish Authorities require anyone coming into Ireland, apart from Northern Ireland and those listed on Ireland’s travel 'Green List', to restrict their movements for 14 days. This includes Irish 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. Please check the Irish Government’s COVID-19 Travel Advice Page for full information here. Further advice for people who have recently returned from abroad is available from the Irish Health Service (HSE) here .
