Citizens of other countries will no longer be subject to travel restrictions when visiting Cyprus, after the government stated on April 18 that such limitations will be lifted.
According to authorities in Cyprus, the country will also relax some other restrictions imposed due to the Coronavirus as of April 11.
Such modifications have been implemented as part of the country’s attempts to make travel easier and return to normalcy.
Other countries will no longer be classified based on their epidemiological state, according to the country’s Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works, and travellers will no longer be required to have a CyprusFlightPass.
Other countries are still being classified by authorities in Cyprus into particular groupings such as green, red, and grey, based on their epidemiological state.
After both Armenia and Columbia were added to the green list, which consists of nations regarded epidemiologically safe in terms of COVID-19 infection, authorities in Cyprus recently stated that the nation will relax entrance regulations for visitors from both countries. The categorization of countries, on the other hand, will be phased out soon.
Beginning April 18, anyone who has finished their anti-viral vaccination routine will be allowed to enter the country without having to undergoing the COVID-19 testing process. Unvaccinated travellers, on the other hand, will only be required to provide a COVID-19 fast antigen test result that is less than 24 hours old or a PCR test result that is less than 72 hours old.
According to Cyrus officials, children under the age of 12 will be exempt from any Coronavirus screenings. Michalis Hadipantelas, the Health Minister, has stated that beginning April 11, persons will be exempted from the necessity to wear a face mask outside. At the same time, the SafePass will only be required for health care personnel and visitors to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and medical centres.
Cypriot authorities have declared that no SafePass will be required for visitors to retail malls, museums, government buildings, or open-air fairs and festivals. It will, however, be required for those wishing to access restaurants.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Cyprus has recorded a total of 449,715 instances of COVID-19 infection, according to WHO data. 950 persons, on the other hand, have perished in the same time span.
