A green list of locations with similar epidemiological situations to Ireland’s has been published. The green list will ensure that the appropriate public health measures apply based on the assessed level of risk in the country a person has travelled from. Persons arriving from these locations will not be advised to restrict their movements on arrival into Ireland.

Decisions on the green list are made by the Government and are informed by ECDC data on epidemiological situations internationally.  

The green list will be reviewed regularly every 2 weeks. If the epidemiological situation in a country deteriorates it will be removed from the list.
