04.04.21 SOME VERY POSITIVE NEWS FOR TRAVELLERS FROM THE CYPRIOT AUTHORITIES;
FROM March 2021 the Cypriot authorities have announced a number of measures which are expected to further boost the interest of airline companies to carry out additional flights to Cyprus, improve connectivity and increase passenger traffic.
There are ongoing discussions with the main tourism countries for easier and safer entry to Cyprus with new categorisations of companies depending on their data.
Theses categorisations are as follows;
Category A will be replaced by the ‘Green Category’, this will be for vaccinated individuals for which there will be no restrictions.
Category B will be replaced by the ‘Orange Category’, which will require a negative PCR test within 72 hours of arrival.
Category C will be replaced by the ‘Red Category’, which will require the PCR test within 72 hours of arrival and another upon arrival in Cyprus. The test in Cyprus will be free.
No isolation measures apply in any of these categories.
04.04.21 UK visitors are now fully allowed to enter Cyprus from 1st April 2021 with no quarantine on arrival. UK restrictions apply.
