Cyprus will reopen to tourists who have been fully inoculated against Covid-19 from May 1 and the Seychelles will welcome all visitors from March 25, irrespective of their vaccination status.
British holidaymakers are the largest visitor market for Cyprus and it is the first European country to confirm it will waive other restrictions for Britons who have received both doses of an approved vaccine – however, May 17 is the earliest UK travellers will be permitted to take foreign holidays under the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.
“We have informed the British government that from May 1 we will facilitate the arrival of British nationals who have been vaccinated … so they can visit Cyprus without a negative test or needing to quarantine,” the country’s deputy tourism minister Savvas Perdios told the Cyprus News Agency.
Sun-starved Britons will also find hope in the announcement from the Seychelles that quarantine requirements will be waived for all visitors (except those from South Africa) later this month with a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure the only remaining condition of entry.
Sylvestre Radegonde, the Seychelles’ minister for foreign affairs and tourism, said on Thursday: “The measures being announced reflect broadly the recommendation of our tourism partners and have been done in full consultation with and the endorsement of our health authorities.”

‘Five life lessons I taught my children on holiday – thanks to dodgy souvenirs and pisco sours’
If this past year of home education has taught parents anything, it’s that not all classrooms have four walls.

Away from home, our offspring are not simply admiring (or sulkily pretending not to admire) the view. They are seeing – scrutinising, even – us, their parents, as we negotiate new places and engage with stressful situations. As a result, our infractions, shortcomings and tiny victories are as much on display as any grandly galleried Old Master – and judged far more harshly.
