Georgia and Malaysia to be added to Ireland's mandatory hotel quarantine list
Kuwait has also been removed from the list.
Georgia and Malaysia are to be added to Ireland's list of designated states for mandatory hotel quarantine, the Government has confirmed.
Those who are not yet fully vaccinated and arrive in Ireland having been in or transitioned through states on the list in the past 14 days must enter mandatory hotel quarantine.
Georgia and Malaysia will soon be included on the booking system for mandatory hotel quarantine, with non-vaccinated passengers from these states entering quarantine starting from 4am on Wednesday, 4 August.
Health Minister Stephen Donnelly also removed Kuwait from the list of designated States for Mandatory Hotel Quarantine with effect from today.
With the new additions and removals, there are now 29 states on Ireland's mandatory hotel quarantine list.
People travelling to Ireland from a non-designated state must fill out an electronic Passenger Locator Form before departure.
They also need valid proof of vaccination or recovery or evidence of a negative RT-PCR result from a test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the country.
More information is available on the Government's website.
