Can I go on holiday to Cyprus?
Cyprus remains on the UK's amber list.
This means Brits will need the following when returning to the UK:
- A negative test taken pre-arrival
- A mandatory ten-day quarantine at home
- Two Covid tests, taken on day two and day eight
However, double vaxxed Brits can skip the quarantine but will still need to have negative Covid tests pre-arrival and on day two, with the new rules in place from July 19.
What are the travel restrictions in Cyprus?
Cyprus has introduced new rules for UK arrivals after moving the country to it's own red list.
In place from July 8, UK arrivals will have to have a negative Covid test before travelling and another one on arrival, while staying in quarantine until sent the result.
Passengers will have to cover the cost of the airport test, ranging from €30-€32.
However, fully vaccinated Brits can avoid the test requirements.
Anyone currently in Cyprus must have a Coronapass, also known as a Safe Pass, to be able to visit cafes, bars and restaurants which have reopened.
Deputy Tourism Minister Savvas Perdios told the Cyprus Mail: “As long as you have a Cyprus flight pass you can move within the destination in areas where the Coronapass is required."
Due to a rise in cases, Cyprus has introduced some of their lockdown rules.
Restaurants, bars and cinemas must have no more than 250 people inside if showing the pass, or 350 if they have had at least one jab.
Outdoor venues can only have 350 with the safe pass or 500 if having one vaccine dose.
Here is the full list of countries on the green list, amber list and red list right now.
Popular holiday hotspots such as Malta and Madeira were also added to the green list.
