GUIDANCE ON INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL 

On Monday 30 November 2020, Ireland will be following the European Union’s coordinated approach to travel restrictions in the context of COVID-19. This ‘traffic lights’ approach provides for regions across the EU and the UK to be categorised as green, orange, red or grey, on the basis of the risk levels associated with COVID-19. A combined indicator map is updated weekly by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), based on agreed criteria, including the 14-day cumulative incidence rate, testing rate and testing positivity rates. You can view this traffic light system here.

Based off this new system provided, please note that:
▪ Passengers arriving from green regions are not advised to restrict movements.
▪ The default remains that incoming passengers from orange, red or grey regions are expected to restrict movements for 14 days.
▪ Passengers arriving from orange list regions who have received a negative result from a COVID-19 (PCR) test conducted no more than three days before the day of departure are not requested to restrict movements on arrival.
▪ Passengers arriving from countries outside of Europe/UK are expected to restrict movements for 14 days.

Prior to travelling to Ireland, passengers should check the Irish Government’s travel advice website for full information on these requirements.
