Cyprus’s deputy tourism minister has reportedly said the country could be green-listed this month and promised rules won’t be tighter for UK travellers.
According to the Telegraph Savvas Perdios will attempt to secure a spot on the UK green list during a visit this week.
He is hopeful this could happen in time for Monday’s anticipated traffic lights update (7 June), if not following on June 28.
He told the Telegraph: "Cyprus absolutely deserves to be green-listed, we have made a lot of progress, especially over the last month."
Last month Cyprus became the first EU nation to reopen to fully-vaccinated Brits or those with a negative PCR test result - yet failed to be green lit by the UK on May 7.
