Shannon Group Statement on Updated Travel Restrictions

13/01/2021 New Irish Government travel regulations which come into effect from this Saturday, January 16th, will mean that all passengers arriving into Ireland will need to have a negative/ not detected COVID-19 PCR test, taken within 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland.
Passengers may be asked to present evidence of their negative or not detected result before boarding their aircraft prior to departure and will be required to produce this evidence to Immigration Officers upon arrival at Shannon Airport. 
Passengers arriving from red and grey list countries, as defined by the EU traffic light system, and all other locations outside of Europe, must continue to restrict their movements for 14 days.
However, this may be lifted on receipt of a negative/not detected result of a second PCR test taken no less than five days after arrival.
Arrivals from green and orange countries, as defined by the EU traffic light system, will not be required to restrict their movements on arrival but must adhere to the local public health guidance.
Exemptions will be limited to those currently exempt from this requirement, which are international transport workers, including hauliers, pilots and aviation crew, masters and maritime crew, and members of An Garda Síochána in the course of their duties. Children under six will also be exempt.
If you wish to check the status of the region you are travelling from you can do so via the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC) website
