Travel Insurance

Covid Travel Advisory & Authorisation


All travel on behalf of the University will continue to be approved on a case-by-case basis by Line Managers through Semester 1 for 2021/22.   National travel should also be kept to a strict minimum and continue to be minimised through Semester 1. Only essential international travel will be permitted during Semester 1 2021/22. Arrangements for Semester 2 will then be reviewed during the Autumn. 

All international travel must to be notified in advance to as our cover has been organized on a limited basis and cover is subject to specific terms and conditions. We continue to advise staff to also seek guidance from the government advice and guidelines on travel at: Travel Advice - Department of Foreign Affairs




Please note that this policy is strictly for  business travel in its entirity only, i.e. this cover is void unless the trip is solely for university business;  due to the specifications of the policy, if you are incorporating a personal travel element within the trip you will need to take out private travel insurance for the full trip.   Please also note that the trip must commence and finish in the Republic of Ireland for cover to be valid.

Please also ensure that you have a valid EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) which is available at no charge at   The EHIC allows the holder* to access health care services when travelling to or in another EU or EEA country. 

*(You must be an Irish citizen or an EU citizen)
