The Department of Health has issued advice for travellers coming to Northern Ireland from next week.

New rules will apply to both people who live here and visitors to Northern Ireland as an additional measure in tackling the spread of Covid-19.

The rules include a requirement to provide passenger information and location details and a 14 day quarantine period.

From Monday 8 June

Travellers coming back into Northern Ireland from abroad will need to self-isolate for 14 days.

Visitors to Northern Ireland will not be allowed to leave the place they are staying for the first 14 days except in very limited situations.

You do not need to self-isolate if you’re travelling to NI from within the Common Travel Area (CTA).

Some travellers will be exempt from the new rules however exemptions do not apply if you are travelling for personal reasons or if you have symptoms of coronavirus.

Anyone who has a new persistent cough, a fever or loss of smell or taste must self-isolate and follow the public health guidance.

If you refuse to provide passenger information you may be fined £60.

If you leave self-isolation within the 14 day period you may be fined £1,000.

Further details are available on NIDirect.
