Muggle-Repelling Charm
Incantation

Repello Muggletum (reh-PELL-loh MUG-ul-tum)

Type

Charm

Effect

Repels Muggles from the charmed area

The Muggle-Repelling Charm is a charm that causes an area to be unseen by Muggles, or causes it to be undesirable for Muggles to search or enter. Its incantation is Repello Muggletum.

Effects

Hermione (6)

Hermione Granger using the Muggle-Repelling Charm to protect the camp site.

Some of the effects of the spell are that Muggles will suddenly realise a reason as not to enter the area over this charm's protection, for example, by "remembering" that they had an urgent appointment somewhere else.

Known uses

Hermione Granger often cast the spell in the area when she, Ron Weasley, and Harry Potter went into hiding in during their hunt for Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (real) also mentions that Muggle-repelling charms are used on the habitats of some magical creatures, to prevent Muggles from discovering them.

Possible uses

It was cast on the stadium of the Quidditch World Cup and may also be one of the protective spells placed on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, since it is known that if a Muggle looks at Hogwarts the only thing they see is a decrepit ruin with a sign saying "Keep out". It is also likely that it has been cast over St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.
