North Cyprus News - Border checkpointThe border checkpoints reopened as of 8 am today. Some of the border crossing points have been closed for over a year, Kibris Postasi reported.

As agreed by the Cypriot community leaders, the Health Technical Committee will assess the epidemiological situation on a weekly basis and decide which restrictions to apply at the border checkpoints.


People from Level 1 – Green listed countries: No restrictions will be applied

Level 2 – Orange: 7-day negative antigen or negative PCR test

Level 3 – Red: Not permitted to cross the border

Crossing for health reasons a 72-hour negative PCR test is required.

For work, education and residence related transitions: 7-day negative PCR or an antigen test

This will apply to people in all categories, including third-country nationals from  Levels 1 and 2 countries.

In case of an increase in Covid-19 cases on either side of the border, restrictions may be increased following an evaluation by the Bi-communal Health Technical Committee and other experts.
