Minister for Transport reports RTE News, has said a mandatory quarantine is not possible to enforce for those entering Ireland but stricter control measures are set to be introduced.
Eamon Ryan said those measures will include an electronic register and testing of some travellers.
Speaking on RTÉ's Today with Sarah McInerney, he said the advice remains that in the wider interests of public health it is best to stay in Ireland and not to travel abroad.
He said the Irish approach to Covid-19 is working and the quarantine measures in place are working, but authorities need to remain vigilant and continue to adapt, monitor and review the situation as more people start flying.
He said if the number of cases of Covid-19 rise as a result of international travel "we will have to tighten restrictions".
