We received great news last 14th December from the Cypriot Government. Cyprus will be ready to host training camps starting mid January.
The Cyprus Government has prepared an updated protocol for travel and tourism, which comes into effect in early 2021. The two main change are as follows:
Firstly, it includes a list of 56 countries which are given relaxations for travel to Cyprus:
EU member states, European Economic Area states (Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, Lichtenstein), third countries featured on the temporary restriction of non-essential travel into the EU and the possible lifting of such restriction), United Kingdom, Russia, Israel, Ukraine, Belarus, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, UAE and Saudi Arabia.
Secondly, it includes a new categorization system, which is harmonized in accordance to ECDC standards.
All of the above comes into effect on 15th January, which marks the beginning of a transitional period extending up to and including February 28th. During this period, countries will be categorized as either green, orange, red or grey. They will move between categories based on their epidemiological state, and their evaluation will continue to be done exclusively by the Cyprus government.
From 1st March 2021 onwards, the 56 countries mentioned above will be exempt from category grey, and will thus only move between categories green, orange and red.
