The Department of Foreign Affairs has extended its deadline for Irish citizens in Spain to travel home.
Travellers have until Saturday 21st March to fly home from Spain, one of the countries worst affected by coronavirus. Spain declared a state of emergency on 14th March.
Holidaymakers had originally been told to fly home by midnight Thursday, but the date has been extended in order to deal with the number of people involved.
The government has formed plans with airlines including Ryanair and Air Lingus to fly citizens home.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is advising against all non-essential travel overseas at least until March 29. This includes Great Britain but does not apply to Northern Ireland.
The Irish Health Authorities require anyone coming into Ireland, apart from Northern Ireland, to either self-quarantine or self-isolate on arrival for 14 days. Check the Irish Health Service COVID-19 Advice Page for full information on these requirements. This includes Irish residents.
