34 countries, including UAE, removed from Ireland’s mandatory hotel quarantine list

DUBLIN: The number of countries currently on Ireland’s Mandatory Hotel Quarantine has dropped to 29, with Health Minister Stephen Donnelly confirming that 34 countries have been removed from the list.

The countries are Afghanistan, Angola, Bahrain, Burundi, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, French Guiana, Guyana, Haiti, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lesotho, Malawi, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Oman, Panama, The Philippines, Qatar, Rwanda, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Tanzania, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, and Zambia.

As the Delta variant continues to dominate in Ireland and many other nations, India remains a high-risk state. The Department of Health has confirmed that Cuba will also be included in the quarantine list from 4am on Tuesday, July 20th. The complete list of nations that remain on the MHQ list can be found here.

Travellers arriving in Ireland from countries on the “red list” must stay in a designated hotel for 14 days. People in quarantine can undergo a COVID-19 test on the tenth day of their stay, and if the PCR test is negative, they can leave the quarantine the next day.

Those arriving from non-designated countries must quarantine at home for 14 days, or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test within five days of arrival.

From July 19, fully vaccinated travellers from the UK to Ireland will no longer be required to take a pre-departure PCR test or to quarantine at home. They will be asked to provide proof of being fully vaccinated.
