Air access returns on 9th July

The easing of air travel restrictions on 9th July will open the door for overseas visitors to travel to Ireland.visitors0919

Air travel restrictions will be eased on July 9, the Taoiseach has announced, with a green list of countries where no quarantine upon return will be necessary.

Ireland will also enter phase three of the lockdown exit plan on Monday.
 As expected, gyms, theatres, cafes and other facilities will open up again on Monday. Restrictions on movements will also be eased.
Places of worship will also get a further easing of numbers that can attend services.
 Mr Varadkar also confirmed a commemoration would be held for the pandemic and lives lost.


The Cabinet also agreed that face masks will be made mandatory on public transport but regulations, including sanctions, have yet to be decided over the next ten days for this.
A new once-off grant of €1,000 will also be made available to the self-employed and those employing less than 10 people.
Health Minister Simon Harris said the week ahead would be an "emotional one" with business, restaurants and even hairdressers opening their doors. 
But he warned of the need for people to be responsible with the larger numbers moving about.
The specific list of air bridge countries that will pair with Ireland has yet to be decided and it will depend on their control of the virus.
Mr Varadkar also confirmed there were problems with Britain's high number of cases but he did not confirm or rule out Ireland's nearest neighbour being on the green list.
