Namibia is one of nine African countries removed from the list of nations whose nationals are no longer required to undergo quarantine upon arrival in the Republic of Ireland. The Irish government said in a statement that the removal of the quarantine obligation for the nine countries concerned means “that no African country is currently on the list of states subject to quarantine”. “Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eswatini, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tunisia, Uganda and Zimbabwe were removed from this list on Friday August 27 with immediate effect” communicated. Ireland imposes a mandatory hotel quarantine for those arriving from designated countries without proof of full vaccination, cure or other exemption. Passengers from these countries had to remain in quarantine in a hotel for fourteen days even with a negative test. A positive test may require a further 14-day quarantine period in a hotel from the date of testing or symptom onset, provided the person has not had a fever for the previous five days. Currently, only travelers from certain South American countries are subject to a mandatory quarantine upon arrival in Ireland.
