From September 2020, the Irish Government travel 'Green List' will be updated on a weekly basis. You can find out more here about Green List travel and how to make preparations for travel from Shannon Airport.
What does 'Green List' mean?
It means that the Irish Government has amended its travel advice from 'non-essential travel' to 'normal precautions' for certain countries.
The requirement to restrict your movement on return from travel does not apply to passengers arriving into Ireland from countries on the 'Green List.'
What countries are on the updated green list?
It is expected that the Green List will be updated each week. This list will change on a weekly basis, depending on a number of public health factors. You can check the most up to date Green List countries on www.dfa.ie.
What about countries not listed on the 'Green List'?
It's important to note that the advice on non-essential travel remains for countries not on the Green List.
Can I start making travel plans?
If you are planning on travelling to a country on the Green List, you should also check what restrictions, if any, apply to passengers arriving into that country from Ireland. Some of these countries have quarantine requirements or other restrictions in place for arrivals from other countries, including Ireland. For more, see www.dfa.ie
What 'Green List' countries can I get to from Shannon?

Arriving to Shannon Airport
The Irish Authorities advise anyone entering Ireland, other than those arriving from countries on the Green List, to restrict their movements for 14 days.
All arriving passengers should complete a Passenger Locator Form in advance of presenting at Passport Control at Shannon Airport. The form can be completed online and is available to download here.
Making it Easy
Our top tip is to download the Department of Foreign Affairs Travelwise App. It's a great resource for up to date travel advice. You can even set it up to receive notifications letting you know when the travel status of a country changes from 'Avoid non-essential travel' to 'normal precautions'.
While many elements of travel have changed over the last few months, the easy, local and friendly welcome at Shannon remains the same, and we're ready to welcome you back when you're ready to fly again.
