Passengers aged 12 years old and over who arrive in Cyprus as of January 14 at 0500 local time, will have the option of presenting a PCR test carried out up to 72 hours before their departure or an antigen rapid test carried out up to 24 hours before their departure.

The Council of Ministers approved the amendment today which will be implemented at all points of entry into the Republic.

More specifically, beginning Friday, January 14th, 2022, at 0500 local time, passengers aged 12 years old and over, regardless of their vaccination status, traveling to the Republic of Cyprus, have the option of choosing between a PCR test done up to 72 hours before their departure or an antigen rapid test carried out up to 24 hours before their departure. 

Taking a PCR test upon arrival in Cyprus is still required for all passengers aged 12 years old and over regardless of their vaccination status. Each passenger has to pay the cost of the test (€15 in Larnaca airport and €19 in Paphos airport).

Moreover, all passengers aged 12 years and older must take a rapid test 72 hours after their arrival.  Passengers who have had the booster dose are exempted.

Finally, all individuals who travel to the Republic of Cyprus are obliged to complete the Cyprus Flight Pass before their departure.
