Recently the Council of Ministers of TRNC has passed the regulation on the measures to be taken to stop the spreading of COVID-19 in Northern Cyprus.

As we all know, since the flights to Northern Cyprus resumed in July, the number of coronavirus cases rose rapidly. To prevent the “second wave” of the Covid-19 and a lockdown, the Council of Ministers has deemed appropriate to quarantine everyone who will come to Northern Cyprus from countries in Category B (including Turkey and UK) for 7-days.
