Health Care System in Cyprus
Separately it is necessary to talk about one of the most important components of any rest: safety for health.
In Cyprus, there is both a public and private health system. International tourists in emergency situations receive medical care for free, in any treatment department. Further treatment requires cash. Here it is not only about serious interference with hospitalization, but also about the banal purchase of medicines. Without an insurance policy it will not be cheap. Therefore, it is not necessary to neglect the registration of insurance, even if it is not mandatory for entry and stay in Cyprus.
In addition to insurance, no additional procedures, such as vaccinations, are not required.
Pharmacies in Cyprus at every step (marked with a green cross), and pharmacists show themselves very high-quality and competent professionals. However, be prepared for the fact that medicines in Cyprus can only be bought on prescription.
And the most important thing. To get help in any emergency, call 112 or 199. Emergency services in Cyprus work around the clock.
Cyprus is a Mediterranean resort, which annually attracts more than 3 million tourists from all over the world! And his popularity is justified in full. There is everything for active recreation: comfortable hotels, delicious, useful food available on any wallet, picturesque beaches with clear water and a “sea” of entertainment that will taste even the most sophisticated holiday-makers!
