The Republic of Cyprus is welcoming foreign visitors again
The Republic of Cyprus, having applied the stringent measures in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, is proud to be one of the most successful countries in containing the virus in its territory. Restrictions, regulation of movement and a continuous testing regime (one in 8 persons tested so far) has allowed the country to start going back to normality.
Passengers arriving at the two international airports need to have a valid Cyprus Flight Pass to be allowed in the country. This pass can be issued online at www.cyprusflightpass.gov.cy. The site offers a comprehensive set of tools which allows travelers to check whether they are eligible for entry into the republic and under which terms. It is also updated frequently according to developments in Cyprus and around the world.
In addition to the regulations that apply for Cyprus, every country is applying its own regulations on air travel; thus we suggest that you check what the valid regulations are in your own country. Of course, normal visa regulations for entry into Cyprus still apply and information on that can be found on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
We will be happy to assist further via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we look forward to seeing you soon for a pleasant, constructive and above all safe conference.
Cyprus is served by two International Airports; Larnaca International Airport, (LCA) and Paphos International Airport, (PFO). More than 50 International Airlines connect Cyprus to the whole world; for more details regarding flights to/from Cyprus, please visit the official website of both airports at http://www.hermesairports.com. Furthermore, domestic communication between both airports and all the major cities on the island is very quick and easy via the extensive highway system.
