20.01.21 SOME VERY POSITIVE NEWS FOR TRAVELLERS FROM THE CYPRIOT AUTHORITIES;
FROM March 1st 2021 there will be an action plan which is expected to further boost the interest of airline companies to carry out additional flights to Cyprus, improve connectivity and increase passenger traffic.
As regards country categorisation, category A will be replaced by the ‘Green Category’, for which there will be no restrictions. Category B will be replaced by the ‘Orange Category’, which will require a negative PCR test certificate not older than 72 hours prior to departure, a practice that is applied today. Category C will be replaced by the ‘Red Category’, which will require two negative PCR tests, one within 72 hours before departure and another upon arrival in Cyprus. No self-isolation measures apply in this category.
People who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 will not have to present negative PCR test certificate upon their arrival.
These categories are in line with the guidelines of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
Countries including the United Kingdom, EU countries, Switzerland, countries on the European Council’s list of third countries, and Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Lebanon, UAE, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Belarus will be classified in the Green, Orange and Red categories.
THIS MEANS THAT THERE WILL BE NO ENTRY RESTRICIONS TO THESE COUNTRIES with the relevant tests or a vaccination.
