Current Travel Advice
The Irish Government is currently advising against all non-essential overseas travel to and from Ireland. You can check the latest guidance and travel advice from the Department of Foreign Affairs by clicking HERE
The Irish State currently requires anyone arriving into Ireland via an Irish airport – including Irish citizens - to self-isolate for 14 days after arrival. Self-isolation means staying indoors and completely avoiding contact with other people, according to the HSE.
The HSE has said that arriving passengers must complete a Public Health Passenger Locator Form before they arrive in Ireland.
The Irish Government has issued this form to airlines and you should receive a copy of the form before you arrive at Ireland West Airport.
The completed form must be handed to immigration officers at Passport Control. You may be contacted during the 14 days after you arrive in Ireland to check that you are self-isolating.
