We're delighted that Cyprus is welcoming UK visitors for their well-earned holidays.
Please see below the latest entry requirements for customers travelling to Cyprus. You should also make sure you check the latest news before you travel, as advice can change at the last minute. You will find the latest news here: FCDO Travel Advice for Cyprus
Entry into Cyprus
Fill out overseas passenger locator form before you travel
You must complete an online overseas passenger locator form, known as a Cyprus Flight Pass, before you depart and have a copy ready to show at boarding and at border control.
You'll need to upload proof of your vaccination status or test results to your Cyprus Flight Pass before you travel
If you don’t complete this before you travel, you won’t be able to board your flight.
Provide proof of full vaccination or take a COVID-19 test before you depart and on arrival
Everyone, except children under 12, will have to either:
- Provide proof of full vaccination: If you’re fully vaccinated - at least 14 days before your arrival, you’ll need to provide proof to enter Cyprus. An NHS COVID Pass shows your COVID-19 vaccination details and will be accepted. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.
You can find out how to obtain your evidence by visiting the Government website:
- Take a COVID-19 test before you depart and on arrival: If you haven’t been fully vaccinated, you’ll have to show evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result. This should be taken within 72 hours before your scheduled arrival time into Cyprus and the result must be uploaded to your Cyprus Flight Pass within 24 hours of your departure. You’ll also have to pay to take a COVID-19 test on arrival at the airport in Cyprus and self-isolate until you get the result. Test results should be available within three hours. Please note, the UK Government has advised that you can’t use the free NHS tests for international travel as the result certificates don’t contain all the required information.
Local restrictions in Cyprus
If you have not been fully vaccinated, and you’re staying longer than seven days, you’ll have to take either a PCR or rapid antigen COVID-19 test on day eight of your stay and every 72 hours after.
To assist with this, most pharmacies offer the Antigen testing and there are numerous walk-in centres locally. The cost of the test is capped at €10 and applies to anyone aged 12 years and over.
Returning back to the UK
Cyprus is on the Amber list for entry back into the UK. You must therefore also ensure you arrange the appropriate tests and forms for when you return home. You can find out more about what you need to do in our articles here:
