Ireland has exempted fully vaccinated individuals and families with newborn children from the normal quarantine requirements for travelers from “Category 2” countries.
While these travelers will not be required to quarantine in a hotel, they still must provide a negative pre-departure PCR test and complete a period of self-quarantine at home or another location specified on their passenger locator form. The changes took effect Saturday, April 17.
Analysis & Comments: Employers should update their employees who are seeking to enter Ireland and should remain aware that those who are now exempt must still quarantine at home and may exit quarantine with a negative or “not detected” PCR test taken five days following their arrival at the earliest.
The Irish government has made this recommendation, which is line with other countries, in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. It is important to note that the list of designated countries will be subject to change at short notice and passengers are required to check the list before traveling to Ireland, to be sure of their obligations.
