Travel to Ireland
The Irish Government continues to advise against non-essential travel for all countries however in discussing this with the Department of Foreign Affairs, Corporate Care Relocation have been advised that ‘non-essential’ travel principally refers to vacations only. Business travel and moving to Ireland for the purposes of work are deemed to be ‘essential’ but restriction of movement for 14 days after arrival is required by health officials. In summary it is absolutely permissible to travel to Ireland for the purposes of work or relocation once restricted movement guidelines are adhered to on arrival.
