Cyprus Entry Requirements.

Please visit :

The UK entered Cyprus’ Red category on 8 July.

Travellers with proof of two COVID-19 vaccinations are not required to take a PCR test before departure or on arrival. If you have received two vaccinations you will still need to obtain a Cyprus flight pass. You should check the Cyprus Flight Pass website for information on which vaccinations are acceptable, and the length of time which should have elapsed between your final dose and date of travel. (See Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status)

Passengers coming from Red Category countries without proof of two COVID-19 vaccinations must undergo a PCR test within 72 hours prior to departure and provide proof of a negative result. You must then undergo another PCR test upon arrival at Larnaca or Paphos airports. Test results should be available within three hours through the online platform. The cost of both tests is borne by the passenger.

Please note that, as stated under the “Public spaces and services” section of Travel Advice, as of 1 August, to qualify for a SafePass, visitors to Cyprus are required to take a PCR or antigen (rapid) test on day 7 following their arrival into the country and then every 72 hours, unless able to provide proof of either: having received two doses of the vaccine; or having contracted coronavirus in the past 6 months.

Results from the PCR test taken before travel can be in the form of an email or SMS, but the result itself and/or appointment letter must include the date and time when the test was taken. You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.

Children who arrive in the Republic of Cyprus before their 12th birthday, are exempted from the testing requirement.

From 1 August, Cypriot citizens and family members (alien spouses and their underage children), and persons legally residing in the Republic have the option to take a test only upon arrival in the Republic of Cyprus, provided you; have received at least the first dose of a two-dose vaccine accepted by the Republic of Cyprus; are aged 12–15; cannot be vaccinated for proven medical reasons. If you meet these conditions and choose this option, you must remain in mandatory self-isolation for 72 hours upon arrival. At the end of the 72-hour period you must undergo another PCR test. If the repeat test is negative, you can end your isolation. The test result must be sent to the following email address: The cost of both tests is borne by the passenger.

Further information about entry requirements for travellers from countries in Cyprus’ Red category is available on the Cyprus flight pass website.

All permitted travellers must complete a Cyprus Flight Pass before their journey, available on the Cyprus Flight Pass website. Where relevant, you will be responsible for ensuring your PCR test result is uploaded to Cyprus Flight Pass within 24 hours of your departure. If you need to provide your appointment letter you can upload both documents in a single photo. In addition to obtaining the Cyprus Flight Pass, passengers are required to carry with them, in hard copy or electronically, copies of these documents. You will be asked to present your flight pass prior to boarding and on arrival at immigration.

The Cyprus government have a help desk to assist travellers with queries regarding the use of the Cyprus Flight Pass. This service is accessible by telephone +(357) 2484 1234 and through the Cyprus Flight Pass e-platform. You should continue to track developments through the Republic of Cyprus Information Office.

Travellers arriving to or visiting the north of Cyprus from the UK, will be required to undergo a PCR test within 72 hours prior to entering the north and present a negative result upon entry. If you have completed the vaccination program and/or previously had COVID-19, you will not be required to quarantine after entry. All other travellers are required to quarantine for 5 days at authority-designated accommodation. From 6 September, travellers must also obtain an AdaPass code (available online) before travel. You will need to upload your negative PCR test result and, where relevant, vaccination certificate bearing a QR code or proof of having previously contracted COVID-19 (in the form of a positive PCR test result obtained 30 – 180 days before the date of arrival).
