WEEKLY UPDATE – 6th SEPTEMBER 2020
ENTRY CONDITIONS INTO THE TRNC FROM THE UK
As a result of the current increase in cases of COVID-19 in the TRNC the following order has been introduced, AND SUPERSEDES ALL PREVIOUS INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING ENTRY TO THE TRNC FROM THE UK,
UPDATED GUIDELINES/DECISIONS ON ENTRY- EXIT INTO THE TRNC (05/09/2020).
A) For travellers coming from Category B countries (including Turkey and England), it has been decided to quarantine for a 7-day period in effect from 7 September 2020.
For those in any doubt, quarantine will be in a Government specified hotel for a 7-day period, where you will be provided with food and water. You will not be allowed to mix with other persons or use facilities except those provided in your room. You will not be allowed to receive goods or food from external sources nor be allowed visitors. You will be tested towards the end of the quarantine period and released if this is negative.
It will be in effect from 6 September 2020 23:59 until 20 September 2020 23:59. At the end of this date, this procedure will be assessed again.
It is a very low possibility for someone who has taken a PCR test on two separate occasions to test positive in a 3-day period and infect others with the disease. Thus, travellers entering to TRNC from Category B countries with 2 Negative PCR results are exempted from the quarantine procedures, given that they stay in TRNC less than 72 hours (Hour 72 is included). Again, people going to work from TRNC to Turkey, who complete their work in Turkey within 72 hours, are exempted from quarantine provided that they take 2 PCR tests with a negative result, 5 days before and after their travel.
