But anyone aged 12 and above will have to take a covid test – costing around £15 – when they arrive at Cypriot airports.

They then have to isolate in their accommodation until the results come back – usually within three hours.

If a test comes back positive, visitors must remain in isolation and await instructions from the Cypriot Ministry of Health. The country will also instruct some tourists to take a further free rapid Covid test 72 hours after arrival at a mobile unit – although those who have already had the booster jab are exempt from the extra tests.

Meanwhile, Bahrain has axed the rule forcing travellers to take a PCR test on arrival and quarantine regulations have also been lifted.

UK Foreign Office travel advice has been updated to contain the latest guidelines.
