The government advises against all non-essential overseas travel to and from Ireland due to the ongoing COVID 19 crisis. Passengers arriving into Ireland from overseas are advised to restrict their movements for 14 days. This includes Irish residents.
Protocols for the Safe Management of Passengers (by air and sea) in light of COVID-19
The sectoral protocols have been developed in consultation with the public health authorities and with industry, who are already implementing the measures.
The protocols set out the expectations and requirements on industry to ensure public health safety of passengers, staff and crew.
The measures cover the end-to end passenger journey and the following key requirements:
health declarations by passengers at check-in
only passengers intending to travel can enter the airport or the ferry terminal buildings, with exceptions for persons accompanying persons with reduced mobility (PRM)
physical distancing and the wearing of face coverings by passengers and staff
increased sanitation measures in relation to aircraft and airports, passenger vessels and ports
