Cyprus may not welcome British tourists in May – UK authorities intend to extend the ban on international travel until July, writes The Times.
Under the British government’s proposal, all travel abroad, which is not considered vital, will be banned until June 30, and violators could be fined £5,000. Exceptions will be made for travel for work, study, medical treatment, visiting family or friends who are dying, weddings, moving or selling property.
Recall that in early March the head of the Cyprus Tourism Minister Savvas Perdios said that from May 1 vaccinated tourists from Britain would be able to come to Cyprus. This news has boosted interest in the Cypriot destination among UK residents. Whether they will be able to put this interest into practice will be decided by a vote of British MPs, scheduled for 25 March.
