The Embassy wishes to inform all Kenyans in Ireland that the Government of Ireland has announced the introduction of a legal requirement for all those entering the state to complete a Covid-19 passenger locator form. This directive took effect on 28th May 2020 to 18th June 2020,
when it will be reviewed. The Covid-19 passenger locator form is used to facilitate a system of follow up checks to ensure that people who travel to the country are domiciled to the address indicated in the forms. The form will also ensure more accurate and expeditious contact tracing, should there be a suspected or confirmed case on a flight or ferry coming into Ireland. The new Covid-19 Passenger locator Form and further useful information can be found on www.gov.ie/locatorform.
Additionally, passengers arriving into Ireland from overseas are advised to self-isolate for a period of 14 days on entry to the state. Self-isolation means completely avoiding contact with other people and is more stringent than the stay at home measures applying to the wider public.
We wish to encourage all Kenyans to continue to adhere with the Government of Ireland’s guidelines on how to combat Covid-19. We will continue updating you on new developments.
