Updated: Important information for all travelling to Cyprus
As of August 26, 2021, Bulgarian citizens arriving at the airport in Cyprus must perform a new PCR test for COVID-19 at their own expense. According to our embassy in Nicosia, the fee is 19 euros at Paphos Airport and 15 euros at Larnaca Airport.
The test results become clear within three hours and are sent to the tested citizen via text message. If the test result is negative, the citizen is not subject to quarantine.
Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the entry test. The same is true for travelers who have been vaccinated as well as for those who have had the coronavirus. They must have the appropriate digital certificates.
The other conditions for Bulgarian citizens traveling to Cyprus are as follows:
- to make an online registration in the electronic portal;
- within 72 hours before their scheduled departure date for the Republic of Cyprus, to perform a PCR test for COVID-19 in an authorized laboratory (valid only for passengers who have not been vaccinated and have not been ill);
- within 48 hours before the planned flight to the Republic of Cyprus to complete and send to the Cypriot authorities the form available in the electronic portal, in which to reflect their personal data and all necessary information for entry into the country;
- to receive a reply from the Cypriot authorities to the e-mail address indicated by the Bulgarian citizens for correspondence with permission to enter the Republic of Cyprus.
To the Bulgarian citizens who have the right of residence in Cyprus and have the so-called yellow list, as well as travelers who have the right to enter the country under the Vienna Convention, upon arrival at the airport in Cyprus are subject to PCR test for COVID-19 and a mandatory quarantine of 72 hours. After its expiration, they should perform a new PCR test for COVID-19 at their own expense. If the result of the retest is negative, the quarantine is terminated.
