There is keen interest from EU citizens in visiting Cyprus once the country opens to tourists, according to what emerged from a teleconference in which Foreign Minister, Nicos Christodoulides, and Deputy Minister for Tourism, Savvas Perdios, participated on Friday with the ambassadors of EU member states accredited to the island.

During the teleconference the ambassadors of EU states which are not so far included in the lists of countries from which tourists can visit after the restart, were interested in learning when their countries might be included, saying there was in increase in interest in visiting due to the positive epidemiological situation in the country.

The teleconference involved a presentation by Christodoulides followed by questions from the ambassadors.

At the end of May, Cyprus sent a letter to its tourism partners abroad with the protocols that will allow the country to safely re-open and avoid the need for quarantining visitors.
