Cyprus moves Greece to category of B countries, the Cypriot Health Ministry announced on Sunday after several people who arrived from Greek destinations tested positive to coronavirus.
According to the ministry, from Thursday, August 6, 2020, Greece, which is currently in category A will be moved to category B.
This means that all passengers arriving from Greece, will have to present a negative coronavirus (PCR) test certificate not older than 72 hours.
The ministry also said that from Sunday and until Thursday, authorities will increase random tests to passengers arriving from Greece.
It recalled that Cypriot nationals and their families and people permanently residing in Cyprus traveling from Greece can get tested upon their arrival at the Larnaca and Paphos airports.
Passengers will bear the cost of the test.
The decision was taken after people who arrived from Greece tested positive for coronavirus.
All passengers regardless of nationality, must fill out the CyprusFlightPass form within 24 hours prior to their flight. (https://cyprusflightpass.gov.cy/ )
