Covid-19 passenger locator forms are being made mandatory from today for all passengers coming into Ireland.
Passengers will be asked to give details of where they will be self-isolating for the next 14 days and also their full contact details.
Failure to do so will carry fines of up to €2,500 or up to six months in prison.
The temporary measure will remain in place until 18 June, when it will be reviewed.
Speaking about the measures Minister for Health Simon Harris said:
“The people of Ireland have managed to suppress Covid-19 in our communities, and through their actions they are enabling the resumption of social and economic life”, he said.
“The introduction of these rules aims to limit this risk”.
