Travelling to Ireland – September 2021

Clock tower at Griffith College

Information for students coming to Ireland for their studies.

In compliance with current public health guidelines, students arriving in Ireland from outside of the EU, or students who have been outside the EU in the 14 days before arrival in Ireland, or students arriving from the EU and not in possession of a Digital COVID Certificate (DCC), are not permitted to take public transport on arrival in Ireland.

Griffith College, as part of its arrival protocol process, will be in contact with all arriving students to outline:

  • COVID-19 public health measures in Ireland and at Griffith College
  • Arrival and airport transfer protocols

All arriving students will be required to complete an Arrival Form, which will be issued by email. Students are not permitted to arrive in Ireland without a completed and authorised Arrival Form. This form will be issued to all students by email.

Upon arrival in Ireland, all students must comply with the college’s 14-day COVID-19 symptom tracking activities, regardless of their vaccination or DCC status. Students will have to complete an automated form which will be emailed daily. This is a specific requirement for all overseas students arriving in Ireland. Failure to complete this form daily may result in disciplinary action in accordance with the College’s QAES procedures.

As public health advice is constantly updated, arriving students should regularly check government websites for the latest travel advice. Griffith College will advise students of any applicable quarantine procedures once the Arrival Form is received at the College.
