In late March, the government announced that travel to Ireland from specified countries and regions would require a mandatory hotel quarantine. As of Tuesday, May 4 at 4 AM, 5 new countries will be added to the mandatory hotel quarantine list.

The additional countries to be added to the list are Costa Rica, Georgia, India, Iran, and Mongolia.

Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba, Moldova, Monaco, San Marino, and the Wallis and Futuna islands will be removed from the list.

There are now 71 designated states for which Ireland will require a hotel quarantine. The full list of designated states is available here.

All Passengers Arriving in Ireland must:

  • Complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form
  • Provide evidence of ‘negative’ or ‘not detected’ results from a COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival
  • Travelers from non-designated states, a 14-day quarantine must be carried out at the address indicated on the Passenger Locator Form. This quarantine may be ended early if after day 5 a traveler tests ‘negative’ or ‘not detected’ with a COVID-19 RT-PCR test.
