Key Points

  • All countries removed from the list of states that must undergo Mandatory Hotel Quarantine


Beginning September 25, 2021, the Ministry of Health will remove all remaining States from the list of States designated for the purposes of Mandatory Hotel Quarantine (MHQ). Incoming travelers still must abide by the relevant travel requirements, which include:

  • Have an RT-PCR test, unless the traveler can provide proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19
  • Complete a home-based quarantine upon arrival
  • Fill out a Passenger Location Form prior to arrival in Ireland

What’s Changed?

Previously, travelers arriving from designated countries had to complete the MHQ upon arrival in Ireland. However, under this new change individuals will be able to complete their quarantine in another location.

Looking Ahead

Continue to check Ireland’s government website for future updates.
