Ireland lifts arrival for 15 countries; mulling over restrictions for hotspots

The incredibly stunning nation of Ireland is opening, slowly but surely, for tourists. It has raised the restriction of 14-day quarantine for people from 15 countries for now; nations that are permitted entry for now consist of Hungary, Italy, Malta, Finland, Norway, Greece, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Slovakia, San Marino, Greenland, Gibraltar, and Monaco. Limitations on Asian countries and the USA is still in place as projected since a number of them are battling a major outbreak of the Coronavirus.

Ireland has been a tourists’ favorite, with Dublin’s very fine drinks as just the perfect start. It is one of the safest places to travel and had to place several restrictions on travelers’ movement in the wake of the pandemic.

Foreign Minister Simon Coveney stated, “The message is still clear, the safest thing to do is not to take your holidays abroad, look after your family, spend your money at home and holiday at home.” He also acknowledged, that the government is studying more options other than the 14-day quarantine for nations or regions within some nations that might become COVID-19 hotspots.

Presently, Ireland boasts of the lowest rate of infections in all European Union (EU) countries with only five cases per 100000 people over the past fortnight.
