FIVE STATES HAVE been removed from Ireland’s list of designated countries for mandatory hotel quarantine

These states are:

  • Bermuda
  • Iran
  • Montenegro
  • Palestine
  • Serbia

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly made the announcement in a statement earlier this afternoon.

This means that travellers coming from these countries will not have to enter mandatory hotel quarantine.

The travellers are expected, however, to have a negative pre-flight test as well as complete “home quarantine” when they arrive.

There are now a total of 56 countries on Ireland’s designated list.
