Ireland updates Green List

The Green List was reviewed on the basis of ECDC data on Thursday 8 October. As no EU / EEA countries were below the required 14-day cumulative number of COVID-19 cases, there will be no countries on the Green List with effect from Monday 12 October.

The next review will be on Thursday 15 October, with any changes to take effect from Monday 19 October. In the meantime, Ireland continues to work with EU partners to finalise negotiations on the new Council Recommendation on coordinating travel within the Union (“EU traffic lights system”).
