Children over six-years-old must have negative coronavirus tests to be allowed to visit the north, a Turkish Cypriot official said Saturday.
Cenk Soydan, the co-chair of the bicommunal technical committee on health, told the Cyprus News Agency that each side enforced its own rules on the matter and Turkish Cypriots wanted children over six going north to also have a negative test.
The Republic allows children under 12 to cross to the south without a test.
Crossing points linking the island’s divided communities reopened on Friday after around 15 months when they were closed because of the pandemic.
Around 7,500 people from both sides, used the crossing on the first day.
