Healthcare for tourists
Medical treatment and assistance is offered free of charge to all international tourists in case of health emergencies at the Accident and Emergency Department of Government Hospitals.
Out-patient and in-patient treatment is provided against payment of the prescribed fees, except for EU citizens who produce Form E111, issued by their country's health care authorities. You can get your prescription, issued by a state doctor, from the hospital’s pharmacy free of charge (provided that you have your Form E111). If you do not have a Form E111, you will have to get your prescription from a private pharmacy.
Treatment provided by private doctors or private medical institutions is not covered, unless you are referred by the Medical Board for services not provided in a government hospital.
Important note: European Community law is not aplicable in the northern (Turkish-occupied) part of Cyprus; therefore you are not covered by your Form E111.
