The changes, which will come into effect from Thursday, have also downgraded Slovakia and Singapore from the Green to the Orange category and Latvia and Romania from the Orange to the Red category.

Currently in the Green category are Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, and third countries Australia, Jordan, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia.

The rest of the countries are listed in the red category.

Passengers coming from green countries need not present a test nor self-isolate, while those coming from orange category countries are required to have a negative PCR laboratory test within 72 hours before departure.

Passengers coming from red countries require a laboratory test within 72 hours before departure and to carry out a laboratory test upon arrival in the Republic with the cost to be covered by them.
