The checks for SafePass in Cyprus will be conducted only via CovScan Cyprus application from Monday, November 8, the Cabinet decided.

The application allows a quick and safe validity of the EUDCC and therefore the checks will be simplified, the press release says.

Τhrough a scan of the QR of each SafePass the establishments will know if the pass is valid if a green light comes on. That means the carrier of the SafePass has concluded his/her vaccination scheme or has been infected with covid. A yellow/amber lights means that the SafePass is also valid and the carrier has undergone a PCR or rapid test with negative result and red means the pass is not valid.
