Woman Calls For Long Distance Relationships To Be Classed As ''Essential Travel''

Dublin Talks heard from a man who has never met his boyfriend in the US but want's to be classed as an essential traveler so he can visit him during the pandemic.

Would you consider a long-distance relationship a legitimate reason to cross the Atlantic?
Love not Tourism is a campaign set up for long-distance couples who believe they should be offered essential travel status for their relationships and mental health.

Many people in long-distance relationships believe they have been “demonised and criminalised” for wanting to travel to see their partners.Under the current COVID restrictions people are only permitted to travel abroad if they have “reasonable excuses," including going for a medical appointment, to care for a family member or for education.

But there is currently nothing in place for those who want to travel to visit their partner.

Ada set up the Irish Love not Tourism group to cater to all the affected parties in Ireland.
