Cyprus will ease entry restrictions for both vaccinated and unvaccinated arrivals later this month, according to a report in the Cyprus Mail.
The newspaper said Transport Minister Yiannis Karousos has confirmed that from 18 April the Cyprus Flight Pass will be ditched for all arrivals and there will be an end to country categories.
Also from 18 April, unvaccinated travellers will only be required to provide proof of a negative pre-departure 24-hour rapid test or 72-hour PCR test. They won’t have to take another test on arrival.
Under 12s will be exempt from testing.
Vaccinated arrivals don’t need to test, but they must have received a booster if their second dose was more than nine months previously.
Vaccinated under 18s don’t need a booster.
Cyprus will also accept recovery certificates from 18 April, providing they are issued ‘by government authorities’ and no more than 180 days have passed since the date of the first positive COVID test, according to the report.
The UK Foreign Office has yet to update its advice for Cyprus for travel from 18 April.
