Cyprus is one of the UK’s favourite holiday destinations and hundreds of thousands of people travel there each year to lap up some sun.
Covid-19 is still affecting the way in which we travel, however, so people need to be informed about travel restrictions imposed by the countries they are travelling to and from.
Cyprus has listed the UK as a red category country and this holds significance in terms of the travel restrictions imposed on those travelling to and from the country and its famous cities: Paphos, Limassol, Larnaca, and Nicosia.

For those wishing to travel to the country, a Cyprus Flight Pass must be completed within 48 hours of departure.
Vaccinated passengers must be able to prove their vaccination status, preferably with the UK’s proof of Covid 19 vaccination record, which is accepted by Cyrpus.
What are Cyprus’ Covid rules?
The NHS appointment card is not a proof of vaccination document.
Fully vaccinated means that your most recent vaccine must have been injected more than 14 days prior to your travels.
For those who are unvaccinated and are over the age of 12, a PCR laboratory test must be taken within 72 hours prior to departure or a rapid antigen test must be taken 24 hours prior to departure.
Following this, a PCR test must be taken on arrival in Cyprus.
Before the result is available you must self-isolate in your accommodation and if you’re positive then you will need to quarantine.
When it comes to travelling back to England, however, there are no requirements to take any Covid 19 travel tests and you do not need to quarantine when you arrive.
