Cyprus moves Poland to category B from A on its green list

Cyprus has moved Poland to category B from category A and Portugal to Category B from C as regards the classification of countries based on their epidemiological risk, according to a Health Ministry announcement.

The new classification is valid as of August 14, and this means that all passengers from Category B need to show a COVID-19 negative test done 72 hours prior to their departure for Cyprus.

Cyprus citizens and their spouses, citizens with legal residency in the country and passengers who fall under the Vienna Convention category can be tested at the airport upon their arrival.

Passengers who cannot be tested at the countries of their origin because a Covid-19 test is not provided at labs, can also be tested in Cyprus.

All these passengers bear the cost of the test and have to be in isolation until the results are out.
