Cyprus has opened its borders to visitors (and potential immigrants) as long as they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 – regardless of where they’re from, or where they’ve been.


Cyprus is one of the top choices for high-nett-worth South Africans looking to invest offshore and acquire a second citizenship. It’s also a glorious Mediterranean island with fabulous beaches, thousands of years of interesting history, great food and more. So – if you’re even thinking of heading off to distant shores – it’s worth taking a look-see.

Travelling to Cyprus

You can travel to Cyprus if you have not been vaccinated, but only if you are from a country on the green list, and then you will still have to jump through a few hoops – a PCR test and, possibly, quarantine.

South Africa is not on the green list, but all is not lost. In a 25 May announcement, the Cyprus government stated that anyone who has documentary proof that they have been successfully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 can travel to Cyprus.

Which vaccinations are acceptable?

According to the statement, people who have received any one of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson (J&J), Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Sputnik (Gam-COVID-Vac) or Sinopharm (BBIBP-Cor-V) vaccines may travel to Cyprus without the need for quarantine, tests or any further red tape – even if you have been in contact with a Covid-positive person.

For all except the J&J vaccine, travel is allowed immediately after the person in question has received the second dose. Recipients of the J&J may enter Cyprus two weeks after the vaccination.

How to make it happen

It’s not quite as simple as just jumping on a plane, though. Before travelling, you will need to visit the official Cyprus government website in order to apply for a flight pass. And then you’re good to go.
