Yes, travelers who have completed their COVID-19 vaccination scheme are allowed to enter Cyprus without the need for quarantine or additional testing. This policy is in line with Cyprus’ efforts to revive its tourism sector while keeping its citizens and visitors safe from the virus.
According to the official website of the Cyprus government’s Press and Information Office, travelers who have completed their COVID-19 vaccination scheme must take the following steps before entering the country:
- Register on the CyprusFlightPass platform, providing their personal details, their flight itinerary, and their vaccination information.
- Obtain a CyprusFlightPass, which should be shown at the airport check-in and upon arrival in Cyprus.
- Confirm that they have not been in contact with a COVID-19 case in the 14 days prior to their travel to Cyprus.
It is worth noting that the Cyprus government recognizes vaccination certificates issued by the EU, the USA, Canada, Israel, AGB, GCC, and WHO. Travelers who have completed their vaccination scheme with a vaccine that is not authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the Swiss Medicines Agency (Swissmedic) may still be allowed to enter Cyprus, provided that they have completed a PCR test 72 hours prior to their departure and have a negative result.
In the words of Marios Demetriades, the former Minister of Transport, Communications and Works of Cyprus, “We are aware that all travelers are eager to resume travel freely without any restrictions. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Cyprus, but we also urge everyone to strictly adhere to the rules and regulations in place, both in Cyprus and in their country of origin.”
In summary, here is a table of the current entry requirements for Cyprus for vaccinated travelers:
|Complete vaccination||Not needed||Not needed|
|Any vaccine not authorized by the EMA or Swissmedic, or no vaccination||10 days||Negative PCR test|

Apologies for the confusion. Based on the video “Cyprus Opens to UK Vaccinated Tourists,” Cyprus will be allowing UK tourists who have been vaccinated to enter the country without requiring a negative test or quarantine starting in May. However, it has not been determined how UK tourists will prove they have received both doses of the vaccine as arrangements for vaccine passports are not yet in place. Those without a vaccine will still be allowed into Cyprus if they carry a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival. The initiative is to recover the tourism market, which has been severely impacted by the pandemic.
