Covid-19 Restrictions on Cruising: Cyprus


Status Summary

  1. Can I and my crew get to my boat and back?
    Tourist arrivals from a limited number of ‘low risk’ countries will be permitted, but this does not currently include the UK.

    If you’re a British national travelling from a category A country you will be allowed to enter Cyprus. 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).

    Return to the UK with NO self isolation (unless you have visited or made a transit stop in any non-exempted country or territory in the preceding 14 days).

  2. Restrictions sailing in-country and cross-border
    Southern Cyprus is permitting yachts to enter. Border gate crossings between North & South Cyprus possible with the condition of showing a PCR negative test done in the last 72 hours.

    North Cyprus (TRNC) only entry is at Kyrenia Port, all yachts must send in advance the boat registration documents, a crew list and (if coming from Category A and B countries) proof of a negative PCR test in order to get a Pre-Permit (this has to be granted prior to arrival).

  3. Social restrictions and requirements (and any special points)
    Restaurants, cafés, businesses and public beaches have re-opened; hotels may re-open. Face masks must be worn in public at all times, and social distancing observed.
