Romania has been reclassified from red to orange, in a minor tweak to the Republic’s Covid-19 travel restrictions list that comes into force on Thursday.

The health ministry also reiterated stricter rules for all travellers to Cyprus regardless of their country of origin and regardless of their vaccination or recovery status. As such, all airport arrivals must undergo a PCR test upon arrival which they must pay for themselves (typically about €15).

There are now just five countries in the green list: The United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia.

Passengers coming from green category countries are not required to present a PCR test or self-isolate upon arrival.

The orange list includes: Greece, Romania, Australia, Japan, Israel, Canada, Qatar, China, Columbia, New Zealand, Uruguay, and Rwanda.

Those arriving from destinations in the orange category need to present a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours prior to departure.

The red list is much wider and includes nations such as: the UK, the US, Russia, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Sweden.

Those travelling from red list countries must provide proof of a PCR test taken within the past 72 hours and undergo another PCR test upon arrival, paying for the cost themselves. They must wait in isolation until they receive the results of their test taken upon arrival.
