The Republic of Cyprus is welcoming foreign visitors again

The Republic of Cyprus, having applied the stringent measures in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, is proud to be one of the most successful countries in containing the virus in its territory. Restrictions, regulation of movement and a continuous testing regime (one in 8 persons tested so far) has allowed the country to start going back to normality.
