Greece, Cyprus and Israel have formalised agreements that will allow travellers who have been vaccinated against Covid to travel freely between the countries.
Citizens will have to show vaccine certificates to travel, though they will not have to take PCR tests or quarantine for any length of time on arrival.
The agreement was a key focus of a visit to Jerusalem by the Greek prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis last week, with the Cypriot president, Nicos Anastasiades, flying to Israel on Sunday to strike the same deal.
The Greek Cypriot transport minister, Yiannis Karousos, told the Cyprus news agency yesterday: “This is a first step in restoring the connectivity between the two countries. It is very important and will be combined with other support measures that will be announced soon.”
The agreement is expected to come into effect by the start of April.
