Passengers arriving to Rosslare Europort from France

12 Apr 2021


Passengers arriving to Rosslare Europort on ferry services from France (including passengers transiting through France) from Thursday 15th April should note that they must complete Mandatory Hotel Quarantine (MHQ) for a period of 14 days. Before travelling to Ireland, you must book and pay for MHQ on their website

In addition, passengers who have visited or transited through other designated states in the previous 14 days before arriving in Ireland must also book and complete MHQ.

Passengers who must complete MHQ will be met by members of the Irish Defence Forces, designated as the State Liaison Official to support Ireland’s MHQ policy, who will ensure you are safely and securely transported to the location in which you will complete your pre-booked MHQ.

Please note that the requirement for MHQ does not apply to international transport workers in possession of an Annex 3 Certificate; Drivers of Heavy Goods Vehicles; and maritime crew. Details on other exempted categories can be found here.

Passengers should be advised not to travel with pets if they are subject to mandatory quarantine, as the pet will not be facilitated at the mandatory quarantine hotel unless it is a guide dog. Any passenger that arrives and is subject to MHQ will be required to hand the dog over the DAFM reps at the ports who will arrange for the pet to be placed in local kennels for the duration of the passenger’s stay at the facility. The cost of the kennels will have to be borne by the passenger. Further information on this and other supports available to people in mandatory quarantine is available here.
