There has been a significant update of the designated states list for COVID-19, with 23 countries removed from the quarantine list.
Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has also added Ecuador to the list of designated states as of Friday evening.
People arriving from a designated country who do not have a valid proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 in the past two weeks must go into mandatory hotel quarantine.
If you receive a negative result from a test taken from day 10 onwards after arrival into Ireland, you will be able to leave hotel quarantine.
Those who do have the required proof will have to present a negative RT-PCR test from the past 72 hours, and self-quarantine at home.
The full list of countries removed from Mandatory Quarantine is:
- Democratic Republic of the Congo
- South Africa
- Trinidad and Tobago
