Cyprus Travel Health Advice

No vaccinations are required for travel to Cyprus but hepatitis A and B vaccinations are always recommended for travellers by health authorities. A typhoid vaccination is also recommended but only for travellers who intend to eat and drink outside of restaurants and hotels or mean to travel off the beaten tourist track. Travellers are advised to avoid eating fruits and vegetables unless they have been peeled or cooked and to avoid meat that is raw or undercooked. Travellers should also always be wary of food sold by street vendors.

Health services on Cyprus are of a good standard. UK citizens should bring with them a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which enables them to receive free emergency medical treatment. Medical fees are reasonable in Cyprus, but supplies are expensive and it is probably a good idea to take with you any important prescription medications you may require (with the appropriate notes from your doctor to get them through customs). Medical insurance is advised.
