Passengers aged 12 years and over are obliged to carry out a PCR test upon their arrival in Cyprus In the context of actions taken by the Government to curb the pandemic and to safeguard the health system from increased hospitalizations of COVID-19 patients, the Council of Ministers has approved today a proposal by the Minister for Transport, Communications and Works, Mr Yannis Karousos, on the mandatory PCR tests by all persons aged 12 years or over upon arrival in the Republic of Cyprus, by air or by sea, and regardless of the original country of departure. Presenting the proposal, the Minister for Transport highlighted the need for temporary measures to be taken at the legal points of entry to the Republic, due to the detection of the new variant of the virus, the “Omicron” variant, which has been recorded in African and European countries. This measure concerns all passengers aged 12 years and over, regardless of whether they hold a certificate of full vaccination or recovery from COVID-19. The cost of the PCR examination will be borne by passengers themselves. It is clarified that passengers entering the Republic from ports for a short visit must hold a negative PCR examination certificate valid for up to 72 hours. In addition, on arrival, they will be required to undergo rapid antigen tests, at the expense of the Republic of Cyprus. The decision will enter into force on Monday, 6 December 2021 and will remain in effect until 10 January 2022, when it will be reassessed on the basis of the epidemiological data as it will develop. For better surveillance and early detection of imported positive cases, PCR testing has already begun and will continue until 6 December through random checks on passengers, irrespective of the country of origin, entering the Republic of Cyprus via Larnaka and Pafos airports. ----------------------- 2.12.2021

DUBLIN PRIDE 21

We, the Ambassadors and chargé(s) d’affaires of the Diplomatic Missions of Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States, joined by the Heads of the European Commission Representation in Ireland and European Parliament Liaison Office in Ireland, express our continued support for the Dublin Pride festival. We are pleased to take part as a joint contingent of ‘Diplomats for Equality’ in the Virtual Dublin Pride Parade on 26th June 2021.
Sixty-nine countries still criminalise same-sex conduct between consenting adults. There continues to be unacceptable instances of discrimination and/or persecution of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and related persons (LGBT+) across the world. This includes hate-motivated violence, arbitrary arrest and the application of the death penalty simply for being LGBT+. We reaffirm our opposition to all forms of violence and discrimination, including on basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression and sex characteristics.
All people, irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender identity should be able to live freely without fear of violence or discrimination, and play an active part in society. Education, raising awareness and dialogue are key tools to achieve this, and Pride organisations across the world, including Dublin Pride, play an important role in this work.
COVID-19 has enacted a heavy toll on our communities. We express support to all those affected, and to the key workers who are helping to keep us safe in Ireland and across the world. This includes members of the LGBT+ community, many of whom already face discrimination, violence, persecution and isolation.  For LGBT+ persons, home may not always be a safe haven. Given stay-at-home restrictions and lockdown measures, it is critical that the LGBT+ population have access to support, services, shelters and other measures.
“Community” is the theme of this year’s festival. COVID-19 is a significant challenge and it has caused great pain. But we have also seen acts of great kindness, of communities coming together to support each other and the vulnerable, and innovative ways of connecting with each other. We are pleased that Dublin Pride 2021 will take place, albeit virtually again, allowing us to continue to support and celebrate the LGBT+ community, the work of Dublin Pride and other organisations and services. We commit to continuing our work to promote respect and non-discrimination against LGBT+ persons.
We would like to thank the organisers, and express our support for Dublin Pride 2021.
