Cyprus Tipped To Open Borders To Vaccinated Brits From 1st May

Cyprus will open its borders to vaccinated Britons from the start of May, say reports.

However, the UK government will not allow non-essential overseas travel until May 17 at the earliest.

The BBC reported that the Cypriot government said those who had received both Covid jabs could travel to the Mediterranean islands without restrictions from May 1.

The country’s deputy tourism minister, Savvas Perdios, said Cyprus would allow Britons who had been given vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency the right to enter without the need for a negative test or to quarantine.

Tourists would be required to have had their second dose at least seven days before travelling, the minister added.

The Times understands that Cypriot officials are examining ways to check that Britons are vaccinated, possibly including an app or letters from GPs.

Cyprus has already agreed a similar deal allowing Israeli tourists to enter the country from April 1.
