Donald Trump has confirmed that Ireland is not affected by the United States travel ban.
The US President announced the restrictions overnight in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
26 European countries are affected by the ban.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has been meeting with Donald Trump in the past hour.
The two leaders plan to discuss the impact of the Coronavirus, the travel ban put in place and access of Irish citizens to E3 visas.
Trump and Varadkar didn't shake hands when they met but instead gave a small bow.
