Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney has said visitors should not come into Ireland unless they restrict their movements for 14 days.
Mr Coveney said the Government is still warning against all non-essential travel, but that a green list of countries – where it will be safe to fly to and from – will be published by the Government next week.
Speaking at a post-cabinet briefing in Dublin on Monday, he said: “People should not be coming to Ireland if they can’t restrict their movements for 14 days when they come here.
“This is not a time for normal holidays for tourists coming from abroad to Ireland. We have been very clear on that.
“There was certainly some evidence over the weekend that there were tourists in Ireland who said that they weren’t self-quarantining or restricting movement, and that has created a concern across the tourism industry.
“Irish people who are holidaying in counties like Kerry want to know they can go and holiday with their family safely. We are considering, as a government, the measures we can take to improve communications, to improve protocols in our airports, to ensure that the passenger locator form that passengers who come into Ireland fill out that we can move it online.”
