General COVID-19 Travel Advisory in Operation
Ireland is implementing the new EU ‘traffic lights’ approach to travel, which applies to countries in the EU / EEA (+ UK). Our current advice for travel to these countries is ‘exercise a high degree of caution’. Our general advice for any other overseas travel remains ‘avoid non-essential travel’ or in some cases, ‘do not travel’. Travel within the island of Ireland can continue as normal, subject to domestic public health restrictions as outlined on gov.ie.
If you are considering travelling outside of Ireland:
In accordance with Government policy, which is based on official public health advice, the Department of Foreign Affairs continues to advise against non-essential travel overseas, other than to countries that are part of the EU ‘traffic lights’ approach, where the advice is to exercise a high degree of caution (this includes Great Britain but not Northern Ireland). The situation in relation to COVID-19 continues to evolve quickly around the world. Citizens who are considering any overseas travel are advised to carefully monitor the official advice and information from the public authorities in their destination.
Should you decide that you need to travel, you should inform yourself about any requirements in the destination to which you are travelling. Information about entry restrictions currently applied by other countries is available on the country-specific travel advice pages.
INSURANCE - GREEN LIST COUNTRIES
Our travel Insurance partners - Blue Insurance (due to the update to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) website last night & the exclusion of ‘all but essential travel’ for the countries on the green list) , travel policy will now cover anybody travelling to one of these countries as per the terms and conditions which will include Medical Expenses relating to Covid.
We will monitor this in line with the DFA advice as we understand these lists may change every 2 weeks
