Coronavirus-test results can be in the form of an email or SMS but must include the date and time when the test was taken and state the type of test, which should be PCR.

All travellers to Cyprus must also complete a Cyprus Flight Pass before travelling which has your CR test result uploaded within 24 hours of your departure.

You will then need to present this prior to boarding and on arrival at immigration – reports Mirror Online.
