CYPRUS is the latest country to introduce new travel rules for Brits hoping to enter the country.
The UK is on Cyprus' red list as the country tries to curb the spread of Covid, so Brits must follow new rules if they are planning on visiting.
From today, all travellers aged 12 and above arriving into Cyprus must complete an online form and have a negative PCR test result taken within the 48 hours before departure.
Travellers must then take a second PCR test as soon as they land at the airport in Cyprus, at a cost of between €15 and €19.
Brits must self-isolate in their accommodation until they receive their test result – which should be within three hours.
If the result is positive, they must remain in isolation and await instructions from the Ministry of Health.
If the result of the airport PCR test is negative, Brits must complete daily self-tests for five days.
If any of those test results are positive, they must contact the Ministry of Health.
