President Mustafa Akıncı and Greek Cypriot Leader Nikos Anastasiades had a telephone conversation regarding the reopening of the crossing points and evaluated the gradual starting of the crossings.

The two leaders primarily agreed on lifting the restrictions on Turkish Cypriots who work, study or receive medical care in the South in addition to the Turkish Cypriots who are residing in Pile, and Greek Cypriots and Maronites whose permanent residence is in the North. In the first phase the abovementioned people will be permitted to cross through points where vehicles can traverse and students who were crossing by the Ledra Palace crossing point will continue to use this crossing.

The mutual crossings agreed will start on 8th June 2020 and a document must be submitted showing that the passengers Covid-19 test result is negative, which has to be done in the last 3 days (72 hours).

In their conversation both leaders also agreed on the Bicommunal Technical Committee on Health to work with priority of preparing a road map for the normalisation of the crossings.

I think the cheapest cost for private antibody test is around 75GBP with documentation. There was talk at one time of being able to have the test immediately on arrival at UK airport which was to cost in the region of 125GBP including docs. Would have meant waiting for sometime insitu, but at least would have allowed business people to go straight to wherever and not having to wait for 14 days approx. Not sure whether that suggestion has come to fruition though.

Everyone coming into England has to go into self isolation for 2 weeks. Immigration takes address of where the person will be staying and a £1,000.00 fine if caught not staying at home.
Hasn't started yet.

Surely a valid health document would be better and safer. It will practically kill uk tourism who can sit around for two weeks before starting your holiday.

stellasstar1, are you saying that testing at UK airports (although expensive) is not even mentioned as an option any longer.

It's hard to keep up with what the rules are. The press briefing will say one thing, then something different in the next days papers, then changing again at that evenings briefings. Currently though, testing hasn't been mentioned unless showing signs of the virus when arriving in England.
