The Eastern Mediterranean Island Republic of Cyprus, In a bid to kick start tourism activities and invite inbound tourists, has vowed to cover the holiday cost for any individual that tests after traveling there.

In a letter signed by Minister of Foreign Affairs, the government said it would pay for accommodation, medicine, and food for patients and their families.

“The traveler will only need to bear the cost of their airport transfer and repatriation flight, in collaboration with their agent and/or airline.”

The government has also made available a COVID-19 hospital with 100 beds exclusively for travellers who test positive. Additionally, 500 rooms will be available in dedicated quarantine-hotels for those who come in close contact with a person who tests positive.

“This will not only ensure that they are properly taken care of, but it will also provide peace of mind to other travellers, that their accommodation establishment is free of COVID-19,” the letter states.

Cyprus plans to reopen its airports from 9th June to a number of countries that are considered to be at low risk. The list of countries will be updated on a weekly basis.
