Travel to Ireland

If you are travelling to Ireland, you must complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form before departure. You are also advised to self-isolate on arrival.

Required forms

Passengers arriving in Ireland from overseas, including Irish citizens, must complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form 48 hours before their arrival. It is a penal offence not to complete the form in the manner specified. It is also an offence to provide false or misleading information on the form. You will receive an email receipt once you have completed the form. Please present the email receipt or a completed printed version of the form to an officer at your point of entry to the state.

During the 14 days following your arrival the information on the form may be used:

  • to provide you with public health information,
  • to contact you to verify that the information on the form is correct and
  • for the purpose of contact tracing in relation to confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19.


All travellers to Ireland are recommended to self-isolate for 14 days from arrival.

Other information

The public health measures that apply to all of the population in Ireland, will also apply to all arriving passengers. You can get more information on the Ireland government portal.
