Cyprus

Cyprus has begun allowing entry to travelers arriving from specific categories of countries, and is accepting online entries for the CyprusFlightPass.

Entry restrictions

The authorities in the north of Cyprus have suspended arrivals, except for Turkish-Cypriots and their dependents. Outbound flights are expected to continue to operate but you should consult your airline directly for more information.

Cyprus has begun to reopen its borders, and prerequisites are in place for travelers to enter the country. To facilitate travel arrangements, the government of Cyprus has created CyprusFlightPass, an online portal where travelers can submit the necessary details to receive authorization to fly. Countries have been sorted into categories A, B, and C based on their epidemiological situation, with A being the most favorable.

Entry requirements

Travelers entering Cyprus from countries in Category A must complete the Passenger Locator Form and the Declarations for Country A Categories to obtain the CyprusFlightpass.

Travelers entering from countries in Category B must complete the above paperwork to obtain the CyprusFlightPass, plus a test (for travelers 12 and over) and lab certificate confirming negative PCR for COVID-19 within 72 hours before their flight to Cyprus.

Cypriot citizens and their family members, legal residents, those allowed to enter under the Vienna Convention, those with special permission from the government, and travelers entering from countries unable to offer testing may choose to get tested upon entering the country (at their own expense). They must self-isolate until the results are completed, and remain in mandatory quarantine if the test is positive.

Category C includes all of the remaining countries not included in Category A and B. Only Cypriot citizens and their family members, legal residents, those allowed to enter under the Vienna Convention, and those with special permission from the government may enter from these countries. They must complete the above paperwork to obtain the CyprusFlightPass, plus a test and lab certificate confirming negative PCR for COVID-19 within 72 hours before their flight to Cyprus. They may choose to get tested upon entering the country, and the same rules outlined above apply.

Please note that travelers from Category A Countries that have stayed overnight in a Category B or C country in the last 14 days before flying to Cyprus will be counted as a Category B or C traveler, and must satisfy the requirements of that category. The same applies for travelers from Category B Countries who have stayed overnight in a Category C country in the last 14 days before flying to Cyprus.

The administration in the north of Cyprus is now also allowing entry to ‘citizens’ and foreign nationals who hold residency, work or student permits. Travelers will be required to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test result (dated between three and five days prior to the date of the flight) on arrival. They will then be required to isolate at home for 7 days, on the condition that you will not meet anyone, or host visitors, during this period. Failure to follow the rules of self-isolation will result in mandatory quarantine at facilities allocated by the authorities. If other passengers on the flight subsequently test positive on arrival to Cyprus, travelers may be subject to further quarantine facility/self-isolation measures.

Quarantine requirements

Travelers could be subject to COVID-19 test and quarantine.

There are currently 8,777 active cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in Cyprus and 49 deaths as of 2 Dec 2020

Entry restrictions

Greenland's travel restrictions are set by the government of Denmark. Travelers from open countries – as classified by Denmark – may travel to Greenland if they present a negative COVID-19 test result taken in a Nordic country (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, or the Faroe Islands) no more than five days prior to travel.

A travel ban remains in place for travelers from other countries, unless the traveler has a “worthy” purpose of travel as classified by Denmark; such travelers must quarantine upon arrival. The full list of travel exceptions (ie, worthy purposes) can be found on the Danish government COVID-19 information page.

Entry requirements

All travelers must also complete a “Sumut” form prior to entry, containing their travel itinerary and lodging details in Greenland. That form can be found on the Greenlandic government COVID-19 information page.

Quarantine requirements

Travelers are not required to self-quarantine upon arrival in Greenland or re-test for COVID-19 after arrival. However, additional COVID-19 tests may be required depending on where in Greenland you intend to travel. Visit the Greenlandic government COVID-19 information page for detailed information.
