What is a Safe-pass in Cyprus?

A Safe-Pass which verifies that one has been vaccinated or has a negative COVID-19 PCR Test result within the last 72hours, or a COVID-19 Antigen rapid test within the last 48hours, or a COVID-19 recovery certificate (valid 7 days after testing positive and for the period of 3 months).

*Note that for Safe Pass purposes, the vaccination certificate is considered expired, when a period of 7 months has elapsed from the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or the first dose of a single dose vaccine. Also, for Safe Pass purposes, the recovery certificate is considered expired when a period of 3 months has elapsed from testing positive. After these periods, a test is required for movements within the destination

No, the mandatory use of a protective mask in indoor and outdoor areas is suspended.

What happens if I test positive while on holiday?

a. The Cyprus government is committed to taking care of all travelers who test positive for coronavirus during their stay. The government will transfer these persons to designated, covering the cost of lodging, food, drink, and medication; the traveler will only need to bear the cost of their airport transfer and repatriation flight, in collaboration with their agent and/or airline.

b. A COVID-19 hospital with a surplus of available beds and intensive care units equipped with respirators, has been made available exclusively for travelers who test positive for coronavirus.
