TRNC Ministry of Health announces changes to the entry requirements for persons arriving from the UK

On 10th August 2020, the TRNC Ministry of Health took a decision that, from 13th August 2020, travellers arriving from the UK will no longer need to complete quarantine in a government-approved quarantine hotel. Instead, persons arriving from the UK will be able to self-isolate at home for seven days, provided that they produce a negative PCR test taken 3 – 5 days prior to boarding and subject to a further PCR test taken upon their arrival to the TRNC. Persons arriving from the UK are not permitted to accept guests at their home during their period of self-isolation. Inspections shall be carried out by the Ministry of Health and those and those found to be breaking the rules will be transferred to a government-approved quarantine hotel.
