Notice - Coronavirus


Please see the Embassy's FAQ webpage  for all information on travel to Ireland and France. The French and Irish Governments are advising against all non-essential travel.

In order to protect public health and to prevent the entry of variants of concern, the Irish Department of Health has designated a list of ‘Category 2’ countries and territories, which currently includes France and French Guiana. As of 30th April, Monaco and Wallis and Futuna are no longer included in the Category 2 list. Any passenger, irrespective of nationality, who has been in, or transited through (even if remaining airside) any of these Category 2 countries in the previous 14 days, is legally required to pre-book a place in mandatory hotel quarantine. You will be asked to present proof of your booking confirmation upon boarding. There are very limited exemptions to this requirement and it is an offence not to comply with these measures. For full informationon Mandatory Hotel Quarantine and how to book, please see

Please note that as part of the combined effort to tackle Covid-19 and general advice against non-essential travel, the Irish Department of Justice has taken the decision to temporarily suspend processing of visas/preclearance applications, except in certain emergency/priority cases. For further information please see For emergency/priority applications, please contact directly before submitting an application.
