We continue to operate our schedules playing a critical role in the supply chain and facilitating essential travel. Our services are operating as normal for freight including freight drivers. We are operating our ‘Travel Safe’ programme to ensure the safety and comfort of both passengers and crew on all our services. In accordance with public health guidelines, it is required to wear face coverings onboard our ships and at ports where social distancing isn’t possible. See what we are doing here.
Advice is still that travel should be for essential reasons only. Please consult your local health authority for further guidance.
2. Present at check-in a negative (not detected) pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test result taken up to 72 hours before arrival. There are limited exemptions for passengers who do not need to provide evidence of a pre-departure test. Passengers will be denied boarding if they cannot produce this evidence at check-in. Any passenger who cannot produce such evidence to an immigration officer on arrival is required to quarantine at a designated facility at their own expense. [Evidence should include 1. Date of test and 2. Test Centre & contact details for verification].
3. And complete mandatory 14 days of quarantine post arrival. If you have been in or travelled through a 'Designated State' in the 14 days before arrival in Ireland, this must be at a designated facility booked in advance with the booking receipt available for check-in. All other passengers must quarantine at the address specified on the PLF. If you are fully vaccinated and have the documents to prove that, then you do not have to complete mandatory hotel quarantine when you come to Ireland. You are still required to have a negative PCR test and complete a period of self-quarantine. See details here.
Immigrations Officers will check 1. PLF and 2. Negative PCR test and penalties and / or mandatory quarantine may be issued for non-compliance. Full details can be found here. Any passenger who breaches the pre-departure testing or mandatory quarantine requirements may be subject to prosecution.
