Coronavirus: All virus restrictions lifted at crossing points

Covid-19 restrictions at the crossing points are to be lifted from 9am on Tuesday, the bicommunal technical health committee announced on Monday.

This means that proof of vaccination and test status will no longer be required by either side.

The announcement was published by the UN secretary-general’s good offices mission in Cyprus.

“[The committee] considers that in view of the epidemiological situation on the island, it is justified to remove all Covid-19 related measures at the crossing points,” it stated.

It warned, however, that the measures could change again in a future assessment.

The lifting of the Covid-19 status checks at the crossings is likely to boost traffic between the two sides, particularly ahead of the summer season.
