Re: Airport positives

It’s usually within 2 rows of passengers seated next to a positive case that would be contacted. At present, most arrivals in to Cyprus are from Russia, which is also seeing a massive increase in Covid cases recently. The airport test results come quite fast, but the positives would have been in the...

Re: Profiteering or making up lost ground?

I overheard a waiter in a village taverna near the airport say to a customer that the local Cyprus house wine had gone up in price due to the Suez blockage…. He hadn’t thought that one through.

Re: Appointment for MEU 3

The ETIAS scheme comes in to play soon. This information will be shared with all European countries, not just Schengen countries. UK passport holders will need to apply for ETIAS approval by 2022. It’s similar to a US ESTA. https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/etias/ https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/new...

Re: More COVID measures - partial lockdown with no limits on movement within province.

The government have to weight up practicalities with risk. After 72 hours you could have picked up the virus. After 7 days you could have picked up the virus. There is more chance of testing positive 7 days after your last test than 3 days, for sure, but the difference in probability isn't huge. So...

Do you have to wear a mask when driving a vehicle? Was out with the dog earlier and 90% were not wearing and 10% were.

Re: MEU3

What I have seen several times is airport staff in Moscow ask for proof of residency to Russians travelling to Cyprus for extended periods. No reason to doubt that British citizens may be asked to do the same at the departure airport as third country nationals especially if you only have a one way t...

Sad. It won’t be the only Cypriot airline to fold this year though it looks like.

Re: Problems with AirBNB

I’d start with the local Mukhtar. In some areas, the Mukhtars approval is needed to let out a property. The CTO is worth a shot too.

Re: More problems with IPT TV

Daughter in Mandria's TV working fine too. When the boxes were re-programmed after the previous time-out, I believe some weren't done 100% correctly, which may explain why you have lost service when others haven't. An sms to our mutual provider will hopefully get you sorted soon. Addendum at 01.50 ...
