On your way to Cyprus, before you arrive you will need to fill out a passenger locator form via the website FlightPass.
Fully-vaccinated travellers will not need to take a PCR test before travelling to Cyprus, but they will need to show proof of their vaccinations, such as on the NHS app.
Check the Cyprus FlightPass website for which vaccinations are accepted by the Cypriot authorities.
Unvaccinated travellers arriving in Cyprus need to take a PCR test within 72 hours of leaving the UK and provide proof of a negative result.
When you arrive in Cyprus you will then need to take another PCR test and isolate until the result comes back negative, but don’t panic: the result should be given within a few hours.
Cyprus is currently using a system called SafePass which is an app you store your proof of vaccination on or proof of negative Covid tests.
The SafePass app is needed to enter closed spaces including restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
To qualify for a SafePass, unvaccinated visitors to Cyprus are required to take a PCR or antigen (rapid) test on day seven following their arrival into the country and then every 72 hours.
Children under 12 don’t have to be tested.
