Northern Ireland has implemented a hotel quarantine system for travellers from a ‘red list’ of countries.
The mandatory hotel quarantine took effect on Friday.
Everyone who arrives into Northern Ireland after travelling from or passed through a ‘red list’ country must now book a ‘managed isolation package’ in a designated hotel.
There are currently 39 countries on the “Red list” including Brazil, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
The cost of quarantine is £1,750 per adult for 10 days and £2,400 for a couple. Children aged 5-12 will cost an additional £325 but there is no charge for children under 5.
Passengers arriving into Northern Ireland from a ‘red list’ country can only arrive into certain airports. They are: Belfast International Airport, Belfast City Airport or any military airfield or port.
Meanwhile, anyone travelling into Northern Ireland from a non ‘red list’ country is required to self-isolate for 10 days.
