Outbound flights are expected to continue to operate but you should consult your airline directly for more information. Cyprus has begun to reopen its borders, and prerequisites are in place for travelers to enter the country. To facilitate travel arrangements, the government of Cyprus has created CyprusFlightPass, an online portal where travelers can submit the necessary details to receive authorization to fly. Countries have been sorted into categories A, B, and C based on their epidemiological situation, with A being the most favorable.
 
Travelers entering Cyprus from countries in Category A must complete the Passenger Locator Form and the Declarations for Country A Categories to obtain the CyprusFlightpass. Travelers entering from countries in Category B must complete the above paperwork to obtain the CyprusFlightPass, plus a test (for travelers 12 and over) and lab certificate confirming negative PCR for COVID-19 within 72 hours before their flight to Cyprus.

Only Cypriot citizens and their family members, legal residents, those allowed to enter under the Vienna Convention, and those with special permission from the government may enter from these countries. They must complete the above paperwork to obtain the CyprusFlightPass, plus a test and lab certificate confirming negative PCR for COVID-19 within 72 hours before their flight to Cyprus. They may choose to get tested upon entering the country, and the same rules outlined above apply. Please note that travelers from Category A Countries that have stayed overnight in a Category B or C country in the last 14 days before flying to Cyprus will be counted as a Category B or C traveler, and must satisfy the requirements of that category. The same applies for travelers from Category B Countries who have stayed overnight in a Category C country in the last 14 days before flying to Cyprus.

If other passengers on the flight subsequently test positive on arrival to Cyprus, travelers may be subject to further quarantine facility/self-isolation measures. Travelers could be subject to COVID-19 test and quarantine.
