Entry Requirements for Cyprus

Vaccination Status

Cyprus allows visitors who are both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated. In order to be fully vaccinated your last dose must be administered at least 14 days prior to arrival in Cyprus.

Cyprus will accept the UK’s COVID vaccine certificate (both digital and letter versions) as proof of vaccination. Digital versions must include a 2D barcode (QR code).

Any paper version must be dated from 1 November 2021.

Children under 12 are exempt from any testing requirements, children 12 or older follow the same rules as adults.

An NHS COVID Pass provides evidence of your vaccination status.

COVID Tests prior to arrival in Cyprus

Adults and children 12 and over must take a PCR test within 72 hours prior to departure and show a negative result if you are not fully vaccinated. No tests are required if you are fully vaccinated.

COVID Tests to be taken in Cyprus

Visitors who are not fully vaccinated (except children aged 11 or under) are required to take a COVID-19 PCR test upon arrival at the airport. The cost of the test is €15 per person. Visitors are required to self-isolate at their accommodation until the result is known, usually within four hours.
