Holidays in Cyprus – changing the rules for entering the country

The Cypriot authorities have announced the easing of anti-COVID entry rules and restrictions within the country.

As of April 18, the filling out of the CyprusFlightPass form by foreign tourists is canceled, the statement says:

“From April 18, tourists who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have been ill with coronavirus can fly to the airports of the republic without restrictions, without taking PCR tests before departure, if they are vaccinated with drugs approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) or have a certificate of vaccination from the competent authorities of a third country”.

The drugs Sputnik V and Sputnik Light are recognized as a booster dose in Cyprus. Unvaccinated tourists and those who have not been ill with coronavirus must provide the results of a PCR test (done no earlier than 72 hours before departure) or confirmation of an antibody test passed 24 hours before the flight. Children under 12 do not need to present any certificates.

As of Monday 11 April, a SafePass pass will no longer be required to enter Cypriot museums, archaeological parks, public events and markets. And a week later, from April 18, the presentation of a certificate at the entrance to shopping centers and shops is cancelled. You will need this document only to enter the internal premises of catering establishments, writes GreekReporter.
