A further nine countries have been added to Ireland’s mandatory hotel quarantine list, which are to be added at 4am on Tuesday, according to the Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly.
The countries that will be added are Dominican Republic, Eritrea, Haiti, Indonesia, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Russia and Tunisia.
Anyone who arrives into Ireland from any of these countries either because they were staying in them or were transited through them must quarantine for 14 days.
An individual is permitted to leave the mandatory quarantine if they test negative for Covid-19 on the 11th day of their arrival.
Anyone who arrives into Ireland from a country that is not on the list is required to quarantine at home for 14 days but are permitted to leave if they test negative for Covid-19 within five days of their arrival.
Anyone arriving into Ireland is legally required to have a negative Covid-19 PCR test within three days prior to their arrival.
