Cyprus

Cyprus has begun allowing entry to travelers arriving from specific categories of countries, and is accepting online entries for the CyprusFlightPass.

The authorities in the north of Cyprus have suspended arrivals until September 20, except for Turkish-Cypriots and their dependents. Outbound flights are expected to continue to operate but you should consult your airline directly for more information.

Cyprus has begun to reopen its borders, and prerequisites are in place for travelers to enter the country. To facilitate travel arrangements, the government of Cyprus has created CyprusFlightPass, an online portal where travelers can submit the necessary details to receive authorization to fly. Countries have been sorted into categories A, B, and C based on their epidemiological situation, with A being the most favorable.

Travelers entering Cyprus from countries in Category A must complete the Passenger Locator Form and the Declarations for Country A Categories to obtain the CyprusFlightpass.

Travelers entering from countries in Category B must complete the above paperwork to obtain the CyprusFlightPass, plus a test (for travelers 12 and over) and lab certificate confirming negative PCR for COVID-19 within 72 hours before their flight to Cyprus.

Cypriot citizens and their family members, legal residents, those allowed to enter under the Vienna Convention, those with special permission from the government, and travelers entering from countries unable to offer testing may choose to get tested upon entering the country (at their own expense). They must self-isolate until the results are completed, and remain in mandatory quarantine if the test is positive.

Category C includes all of the remaining countries not included in Category A and B. Only Cypriot citizens and their family members, legal residents, those allowed to enter under the Vienna Convention, and those with special permission from the government may enter from these countries. They must complete the above paperwork to obtain the CyprusFlightPass, plus a test and lab certificate confirming negative PCR for COVID-19 within 72 hours before their flight to Cyprus. They may choose to get tested upon entering the country, and the same rules outlined above apply.

Please note that travelers from Category A Countries that have stayed overnight in a Category B or C country in the last 14 days before flying to Cyprus will be counted as a Category B or C traveler, and must satisfy the requirements of that category. The same applies for travelers from Category B Countries who have stayed overnight in a Category C country in the last 14 days before flying to Cyprus.

The administration in the north of Cyprus is now also allowing entry to ‘citizens’ and foreign nationals who hold residency, work or student permits. Travelers will be required to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test result (dated between three and five days prior to the date of the flight) on arrival. They will then be required to isolate at home for 7 days, on the condition that you will not meet anyone, or host visitors, during this period. Failure to follow the rules of self-isolation will result in mandatory quarantine at facilities allocated by the authorities. If other passengers on the flight subsequently test positive on arrival to Cyprus, travelers may be subject to further quarantine facility/self-isolation measures.

There are currently 286 active cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in Cyprus and 22 deaths as of Sep 20 2020

Denmark has updated its travel restrictions as of June 27. Danish nationals and residents may still return to Denmark from anywhere. For travelers who are not residents or nationals, entry regulations depend on whether they are arriving from an ‘open’ country or a ‘banned’ country. A country’s status can change dependent on its infection rate for COVID-19. The status is updated weekly on Thursdays and can be found here.

Travelers with a ‘worthy purpose’ may also travel to Denmark without having to go into a two-week quarantine. Proof will be required to demonstrate a ‘worthy purpose’ to enter. Examples of 'worthy purposes' include work or study in Denmark, transporting goods, and various family-related reasons, for example visiting a family member or partner who is a Danish resident. The full list of 'worthy purposes' is subject to change and can be found here. Travelers from a "banned" country are advised to check with the Danish authorities on their helpline (+45 7020 6044) to confirm whether they will be allowed entry into the country.

The Danish government permits “sweethearts”, fiancees, and other close relations of Danish citizens or foreign nationals legally residing in Denmark to enter Denmark, so long as the individual can present proof of a negative COVID-19 test carried out no more than 72 hours before entry. This exception is Denmark-specific and does not apply to all countries within the Schengen zone or EU. Travelers going to Denmark under the “sweetheart declaration” from outside the EU are strongly encouraged to take a nonstop flight to Denmark to ensure smooth entry into the country. For more information on this regulation, see here.

Travelers returning to their home country may transit through Denmark. All travelers transiting or traveling to/from Denmark must wear masks at all times on flights and inside the airport.

All travelers on flights to Canada must have a face covering. Travelers who exhibit symptoms will be prohibited from boarding planes that are destined for Canada. If they exhibit symptoms on arrival they will be referred to the Canadian Public Health Agency. Travelers who have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to medical reasons related to COVID-19 may not enter the country. Travelers must self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival at their final destination in Canada. Travelers who disembarked from a cruise ship with a known COVID-19 outbreak like the ‘Diamond Princess’ will be required to remain in quarantine for 14 days at a location determined by the Chief Public Health Officer. North Macedonian passports which expired on March 18, 2020 or later will be considered valid for entry to Canada through July 31, 2020. Visitors transiting through Canada who are not otherwise exempted (for example, by having a valid Canadian visa or a permanent resident card) must obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization. See the Transport Canada website for more information.

Greenland

Greenland allows travelers to enter from countries defined as "open" by Denmark. They must have a COVID-19 test taken in a Nordic country in the 5 days before travel.

Greenland's travel restrictions are set by the government of Denmark. Travelers from open countries – as classified by Denmark – may travel to Greenland if they present a negative COVID-19 test result taken in a Nordic country (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, or the Faroe Islands) no more than five days prior to travel.

A travel ban remains in place for travelers from other countries, unless the traveler has a “worthy” purpose of travel as classified by Denmark; such travelers must quarantine upon arrival. The full list of travel exceptions (ie, worthy purposes) can be found on the Danish government COVID-19 information page.

All travelers must also complete a “Sumut” form prior to entry, containing their travel itinerary and lodging details in Greenland. That form can be found on the Greenlandic government COVID-19 information page. Travelers are not required to self-quarantine upon arrival in Greenland or re-test for COVID-19 after arrival. However, additional COVID-19 tests may be required depending on where in Greenland you intend to travel. Visit the Greenlandic government COVID-19 information page for detailed information.
