Medical bills of travellers covered in Cyprus

Published on : Thursday, May 28, 2020

The costs of any traveller who becomes sick with Covid-19 while on holiday there will be covered.

After the country has prepared to reopen its tourism sector next month the move came.

 On Wednesday, in a letter made public  the government said it would pay for accommodation, medicine and food for patients and their families.

According to the authorities  tourists themselves “will only need to bear the cost of their airport transfer and repatriation flight.

The country has confirmed 939 Covid-19 infections and 17 deaths, the John Hopkins University data.

Last year tourism accounted for about 15 per cent of the Cypriot GDP.

A 100-bed hospital would be set aside specifically for tourists who test positive, as well as several so-called “quarantine hotels” for the patients’ families.

On June 9th Cyprus will reopen its airports  to a number of countries that are seen to be low risk, including Germany, Greece, Israel and Malta.

Deputy tourism minister, Savvas Perdios, confirmed visitors from the UK and Russia – which together account for more than half of all holiday-goers in Cyprus – will likely be allowed to travel to the Mediterranean island in July.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office warned there are currently extremely limited, indirect commercial options available to return to the UK from Cyprus due to the near complete ban on flights which is not expected to change before mid-June.
