Ireland’s travel Green List will have no counties from Monday 12th October.
Rising Covid-19 rates across Europe have led the government to decide that no countries are safe for travel without restricted movement.
Cyprus, Finland, Latvia and Liechtenstein are the only four countries on the list at present and will be removed from midnight Monday.
The Department of Foreign Affairs is working with EU partners to finalise negotiations on a new EU traffic lights system. The system would see different countries or regions designated red, orange or green, depending on the incidence of Covid-19.
