Kenya has been added to the list of designated states for mandatory hotel quarantine in Ireland.
From April 15, passengers arriving in Ireland from Kenya will be required to have pre-booked hotel quarantine provisions before being allowed entry.
They will be required to pay at least €1,875 (£1,614) to stay at one of the 24 designated hotels.
“If you come into Ireland from a designated state, you must complete a minimum of 10 days of mandatory quarantine in a hotel. However, if you receive a negative or ‘not detected’ result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken on day 10, your period of quarantine may be completed at home,” the Irish embassy in Nairobi said in a statement.
