Ireland: Mandatory Hotel Quarantine Lifted

Last Updated on February 23, 2023

Key Points  

  • All countries removed from Mandatory Hotel Quarantine list


On Sept. 25, 2021, the Ministry of Health  removed all remaining countries from the list of countries subject to the Mandatory Hotel Quarantine (MHQ). Incoming travelers still must abide by the relevant travel requirements, which include:  

  • Have a RT-PCR test, unless the traveler can provide proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 
  • Complete a home-based quarantine upon arrival  

What are the Changes?  

Previously, travelers arriving from designated countries had to complete the MHQ upon arrival in Ireland. However, under this new change individuals will be able to complete their quarantine in another location.
