Cyprus is now exempt from the FCO advice against all non-essential international travel.
However, the country is not currently accepting Britons.
The FCO explained: “You cannot enter Cyprus if you have been in the UK in the last 14 days.”
You will also not be allowed to enter via a third country such as Greece until further notice.
This rule could change from August 1.
The FCO continued: “The exception to this is legal residents of Cyprus and Cypriot ID holders who will be permitted to enter Cyprus on presentation of proof of residence or Cypriot nationality and a negative PCR (antibody) test result (taken in the 72 hours before departure).
Cyprus has divided countries into two categories, A and B, based on the internationally available epidemiological data.
“If you’re a British national travelling from a category A country you will be allowed to enter Cyprus,” detailed the FCO.
“If you’re a British national travelling from a Category B country, and have not been in the UK (or any other Category C country) in the last 14 days, you will also be allowed to enter Cyprus with a negative PCR test result (taken in the previous 72 hours).”
