Yes, they do, but as was said previously, Cypriot citizens returning to Cyprus can be tested on arrival. As can legal permanent residents here. End Of.

Re: Coronavirus: Thirty-nine new cases, 33 from abroad (Update 3)

I thought that people from Cat B countries had to have a Covid 19 test and certificate giving a negative result, 72 hrs before entry to Cyprus, or are the rules different for each country ? That's what I have arranged before I fly. Chances are that all these passengers were actually Cypriots return...

Are we sure that those travelling from Mykonos were not Cypriot tourists to that island returning to Cyprus after their hols?

Re: UK tourists

Amazingly the UK government can apply a 14 day period of quarantine within hours of receiving the information about Covid-19 increases in some areas of Spain but it took them nearly two weeks to impose the use of face masks in shops. By this I am not saying that the precautions are not required, jus...

Re: Prepare now to pay the price of Brexit

Austin7,
Re your comment about HIC, The inference was there and just by sticking an emoticon on the end does not remove that inference. As far as my sense of humour is concerned please read my posting on 'that 'Bumbling Oaf' and have a chuckle.

Re: Shamima Begum - this is going to cost UK a small fortune....

(A la HIC), Told you so in my many posts on this. OK she will be able to come in to UK to fight her corner against revocation of her citizenship, but it is only the first step. Would have been cheaper to let her in in the first place.

I doubt that. While the UK government have announced rescue packages for the arts post Corona, they don't include anything for stand-up comedy.
Of course the government are supporting stand up comedy. They wheel out that bumbling oaf ever Wednesday at PMQs.

Re: Prepare now to pay the price of Brexit

I agree that HIC has become a bore on this particular subject but the alternative of blocking him is, in my opinion, not possible as, on occasion, he has useful information to impart.

Also called "travel corridors", air bridges will allow tourists to travel between two countries without the need to quarantine.
Under the present circumstances I can't imagine any country wanting an air bridge with UK.
