Update: The Safe Cyprus pass is no longer required as decided recently.
What is SafePass Cyprus application?
Cyprus has upgraded its arrangements of managing travelers in the second year of Covid-19 and has gone a step ahead of many nations by introducing a smartphone app that can serve as proof of vaccination and Covid-19 RT-PCR testing or rapid testing. Travelers in Cyprus don’t need to carry a vaccination card or negative Covid-19 test in the form of a hardcopy result any longer.
The permanent secretary of the deputy minister for research, innovation, and digital policy announced recently that people will soon be able to download the SafePass or CovPass app on their mobile phones.
The prime reason to launch the app is to expedite the process of displaying the passes and approving the movement of people. It is also introduced with the purpose of facilitating the traveling of Cypriot citizens within European Union countries.
The app development team is ready with the application and has submitted it to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for approval.
The Cypriot citizens must display the app while entering restaurants, nightclubs, theatres, event halls, live music venues, bars, pubs, worship places, open and enclosed sports stadiums. Without the app, people would not be allowed to enter public places or to travel across the EU and within Cyprus.
