Travel Restrictions

Cyprus is one of the safer places to travel to during the Coronavirus pandemic, with only 5 of the 200,000 tourists that have spent their holidays there have exhibited any COVID-19 symptoms. The number of local resident infections has also remained fairly low.

The UK is in Cyprus’ travel Category B, which means the only extra entry requirement is a negative COVID-19 PCR test on arrival. This must be performed within 72 hours before travel. Coronavirus test results can be in the form on an email or SMS, but the test result must include where and when the test was taken. Children under 12 do not require a test to travel to Cyprus.

All travellers to Cyprus must complete a Cyprus Flight Pass before travelling, available on the Cyprus Flight Pass website. You must also upload your PCR test result and appointment letter within 24 hours of your departure. If you need any help with this process, the Cyprus Flight Pass e-platform has been set up to assist all visitors. You should continue to track developments through the Republic of Cyprus Information Office.

All travellers should be aware that if other passengers on your flight subsequently test positive on arrival to Cyprus, you may be subject to mandatory quarantine/self-isolation measures.

If you’re heading on holiday to Cyprus, you can book a COVID-19 PCR home test kit with us, or at one of our VIVO Clinics across the UK here.

Returning to the UK

Cyprus is currently one of the countries on the UK travel corridor list and does not require individuals to self-isolate when returning to the UK.

For the latest information on travelling abroad to and from the UK, please be sure to check the government’s travel advice website.

Hotels, shopping and attractions

Cyprus has already put measures in place to protect travellers and residents, such as ensuring hotel and hospitality staff wear masks and gloves, regularly disinfecting restaurants, shops, businesses, public areas and sunbeds. Similarly to the UK, tables at restaurants, bars, cafés, and pubs have to be at least two meters (6.5 feet) apart and face masks are required in most public places, including supermarkets, shops, malls and attractions. A full list can be found on the Cyprus government Press Information Office website. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in a €300 fine.

Some entertainment venues, such as clubs and casinos, continue to remain closed.

Travel in Cyprus

While public transportation in Cyprus has similar face mask rules to the UK, there are recent policy changes for tourists to be aware of. The Government have announced that all crossing points between the Republic and the north are effectively closed to travellers.

Healthcare in Cyprus

If you develop a fever and/or respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath or cough, the Cyprus Government advise that you stay indoors and immediately contact the Ministry of Health’s public health line: 1420. The Cypriot Ministry of Health website has further information on coronavirus from the Cypriot authorities, and what you should do if you are worried you may have symptoms of Covid-19 whilst on holiday there.
