The updated Green List will be implemented from Monday.

An updated Green List for those travelling from Ireland to other EU nations has been issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, based on the latest data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

The current list, which will remain active until midnight on Sunday September 27, is as follows:

  • Cyprus
  • Finland
  • Germany
  • Iceland
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Poland

If you are returning from these countries before Monday, then you may return to Ireland without having to restrict your movements. However, the new list as of Monday September 28, will see four of these countries removed and one added:

  • Cyprus
  • Finland
  • Latvia
  • Liechtenstein

The DFA once again reminds anyone travelling abroad the Green List only applies to those travelling in to Ireland, and that there may be different restrictions of movement for those travelling into any of the above countries:

“Inclusion on the list does not imply the absence of any restrictions on arrivals in those countries. The situation will continue to evolve quickly. Citizens who are considering travel to particular locations are advised to monitor news and information from the public authorities in their destination.”
