Since early February, the State has stopped recording data on whether people who were travelling into the country were making an essential journey.
This also includes seeking information from those travelling from high-risk countries.
The Department of Health stated that the passenger locator form was amended and the declaration on essential travel is no longer recorded.
In response to this, Social Democrats TD Róisín Shorthall stated that there was no apparent reason as to why passengers were no longer being asked if their journey was essential.
A spokesperson from the Department of Health stated that they no longer recorded passenger journey details as new regulations on mandatory quarantine were introduced.
In relation to travel, vaccines and case numbers, Ms Shorthall stated that the government should be trying to increase transparency and public access to data and should not be reducing it.
