The rise in the number of coronavirus infections in Cyprus now means that a 7-day rapid test (antigen) or negative PCR test will again be required for people wishing to cross the Cyprus border from Monday, including those who have been vaccinated. Unvaccinated people will be able to cross the border if they have a certificate confirming a negative Covid test taken within the last 72 hours before crossing the border.
The United Nations representative in Cyprus announced that the Health Technical Committee is assessing the epidemiological situation in accordance with the agreement of the two parties to synchronize COVID-19 measures with regard to border crossings.
In line with the latest situation in Cyprus, it was decided to take action "Dark Red Level 3".
From 9 am Monday, November 22, the following measures will be taken at all checkpoints:
Fully vaccinated with Sinovac, Sinopharm or Sputnik vaccines, as well as EMA-approved vaccines, will be able to cross the border with a 7-day negative rapid test or PCR test.
The European Digital Certificate for COVID Vaccine "Safe Pass" becomes mandatory from 22 November in South Cyprus.
Although it has been stated that Turkish Cypriots will be exempt from this practice, it will be necessary to present a vaccination card in order to be considered exempt from it.
Three months ago, a digital link was provided to Turkish Cypriots who wanted access to the "European Covid Digital Certificate"
According to the Cypriot Authority for Research, Innovation and Digital Policy, Turkish Cypriots who have been vaccinated and wish to obtain a European Covid Vaccine Digital Certificate (EU Covid Digital Certificate) for travel can apply electronically with all the required documents.
Turkey and the UK are on the list of third countries that have signed up for the EU Safe Pass app.
