Unprecedented efforts are under way to limit the spread of COVID-19 on the island of Ireland. Tourism Ireland is closely monitoring the situation.
The authorities in the Republic of Ireland are currently advising against all non-essential travel, for the time being. Most visitors arriving in the Republic of Ireland are required to complete a public health Passenger Locator Form and self-isolate for 14 days; the mandatory self-isolation for most travellers arriving in Ireland is in place until further notice. From Monday, 21 September, visitors from the following countries will not have to restrict their movements or self-isolate: Cyprus, Germany, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. This list will be reviewed on a weekly basis, based on advice from officials, including public health experts.
For Northern Ireland, no self-isolation is required for visitors from low to medium risk countries; this list can be found here
If you’re concerned about how the situation will affect your travel plans, we recommend that you check with your airline, tour operator, cruise line or transport and accommodation providers.
We suggest that tourism businesses on the island of Ireland looking for information about coronavirus and its impact on travel go to the relevant sections on the websites of Fáilte Ireland
and Tourism NI
