All actual information about COVID-19 (prevention, statistics, symptoms and more) you can find on WHO website and in Google feed.

2019 divided the history of most countries into «before» and «after». We are talking about a pandemic that has swept the whole world. The SARS-CoV-2 virus was first identified among residents of Hubei province (China). In just a few months, a disease called Covid-19 has spread to the inhabitants of the entire planet. Cyprus and Italy were not an exception.

Why is covid so dangerous? Regardless of the level of development of a particular state, medical care and other factors, millions of people have become victims of the coronavirus. According to the latest data, this figure is 177 039 062 people, among the total — 3 832 951 deaths. The main symptoms of the disease are: shortness of breath, high fever, dry cough, loss of taste and smell. The world’s leading countries have developed or are working on the production of their own vaccines that protect against COVID-19. Naturally, vaccination is not a 100% guarantee of protection against coronavirus, however, when infected, the disease is transferred much easier.

According to current data (statistics for Saturday, 5 June 2021), the number of cases in Italy is 4 230 153 people, total deaths are 126 472, and 195 369 are sick right now. Such statistics forced the government of the state of Italy to impose certain restrictions on flights and border crossing.

Is it allowed to enter Italy from Cyprus?

Current statistics on the restrictions on entry to Italy:

  • Open to citizens: Yes
  • Open to s: Yes
  • Open to foreigners and tourists: Partially
  • Quarantine (lockdown) in Italy: Partial

During the most «acute» periods of the pandemic, the following restrictions are applied in Italy:

  1. Foreigners can enter the territory of Italy only if absolutely necessary: study in Italy, employment, residence permit. For more information about the conditions of entry, read the official sources of the government: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/italy/staying-during-coronavirus
  2. Availability of the test: Negative PCR test is required for some countries.

All countries are divided into 3 main categories by the Ministry of Health:

  • «Green» (low rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Orange» (average rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Red» (high rate of spread of coronavirus)

In this regard, the government acts in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Association. The distribution of states into separate categories is updated regularly. At the moment, Cyprus ranks among the states of the «Green» category.

The main reasons for the introduction of new restrictions are coronavirus mutations, an increase in the number of cases, and insufficient vaccination rates.
