What is the latest travel advice for Cyprus?

The UK government announced yesterday that Cyprus is to be removed from the travel corridor list.

This is due to the soaring number of cases in Cyprus – while total cases are just 4,051, their new daily case rate is 111.7 per 100,000 people over a seven day period.

The new rules will be enforced by this Sunday, with any arrivals after 4am forced to self-isolate for two weeks.

Many families currently on holiday during the half term are likely to face the quarantine period, unless they can change their flights to an earlier time.

Previous rules allowed Brits into the country, as long as they had a negative coronavirus test taken within 72 hours of arrival into the country.

Will I have to quarantine in Cyprus?

Travellers heading to Cyprus will not have to quarantine on arrival, but will need the negative coronavirus test.

All travellers to Cyprus must also complete a Cyprus Flight Pass before travelling which has your test result uploaded within 24 hours of your departure.

You will then need to present this prior to boarding and on arrival at immigration.

What other restrictions are in place in Cyprus?

Face masks must be worn in indoor public spaces such as shops and supermarkets.

While the country remains open for travellers, many of the popular holiday resorts including Ayia Napa remain very quiet.

Are flights operating to Cyprus?

TUI has cancelled Cyprus holidays up until November 4, and easyJet Holidays is cancelling all trips to the island as well.

Other airlines currently offer flights to Cyprus, such as Jet2, British Airways and the newly relaunched Thomas Cook, although they are likely to cancel them following the announcement.

Families with holidays planned should get in touch with the tour operator in regards to a refund or moving holiday dates.
