Indian expatriates in Ireland are not making holiday trips, but essential journeys

DUBLIN: The term holiday, which was commonly used by expatriates in Ireland, including Indians, is no longer used when they go home on holidays! Instead, the terms ‘family visit’ and ‘essential journey’ are now being used.

There have also been reports of managements denying leave in recent weeks to a number of people seeking holidays. The strictness of the government is in accordance with the government’s order not to go on holiday. But most of them got leave as it was shown as ‘essential / family visit’. At the same time, many sought the help of trade unions to get leave.

Those returning from celebrating holidays will be fined €2,000

Taoiseach Micheál Martin has indicated in Dail that the government will increase the fines currently imposed on those who leave the country to celebrate the holidays. The proposal calls for a fine of €2,000 instead of the current €500.
