The Ministry issued today a new announcement after having moved yesterday Greece to Category B as of August 6th following an increased number of COVID-19 cases from passengers returning from Greece in the last few days.

According to the Ministry of Health, as passengers from Category B countries must present a negative coronavirus test or be tested in Cyprus upon arrival, and due to the inconvenience caused to Cypriots and permanent residents of the Republic who travelled to Greece before August 2 and plan to return after August 6,  they will be able to undergo a laboratory test at the airport free of charge.

It is noted that they must provide and submit to the laboratory a copy of a ticket and / or a boarding pass.
