With our mission to uncomplicate the complicated, we’ve always thought of our work in immigration as people-first. Our goal is for these updates to make sense of the changes happening across the world. Please share these updates with your colleagues who may find this information helpful, too.

Ireland | As a COVID-19 prevention and response measure, all travelers arriving into Ireland must complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form. From Wednesday, August 26, 2020, the Passenger Locator Form is available online.

The government may use the information provided to contact individuals within 14 days of their arrival, to verify the details, provide public health advice, or for contact tracing. If individuals are traveling to Northern Ireland, they will have to complete a portion of the form. Diplomats and people who are deemed essential supply-chain workers are not required to complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form.
