However, new rules have been announced that will now allow lateral flow testing – a much cheaper option.

Based on local media: “Passengers aged 12 and over arriving in Cyprus on January 14 at 05:00 local time, will have the option of taking a PCR test performed up to 72 hours before departure or a rapid antigen test done up to 24 hours before they depart.”

Not only are they much cheaper – £60 less on average than PCR – but can also be done much later, giving passengers more time to check.

Travelers are still required to take a second PCR test as soon as they land at the airport in Cyprus, which costs between €15 and €19 depending on the destination.

Britons must self-isolate at their residence until they receive their test results – which should be within three hours.

The easing of restrictions will be welcomed by Britons planning their next holiday to Europe, after the UK lifted some separate testing restrictions.

Pre-arrival testing has been dropped while second-day testing can now be a lateral flow instead of PCR testing.

And other countries are lifting their own travel restrictions as Omicron spreads across Europe.

Germany lifts their UK travel ban earlier this month, while French MPs confirmed The UK’s ban on mass-goers will be lifted ‘in the next few days'”.

However, travelers are still encouraged to check the rules before booking a stay – countries like Morocco has yet to lift its own UK travel ban.

The following is 38 countries that UK tourists still banned from.
