Cyprus low-income retirees will be able to go on vacation, fully paid by the state. The new subsidized holiday program is part of measures to support vulnerable groups, as well as to support domestic tourism.

A free 4-day holiday (with three nights) in mountain resorts with full board is provided to low-income seniors, the government has decided.

Subsidized vacations start on June 1 and will last for four months, in June-July and September-October.

The program is available to pensioners who receive the minimum guaranteed income, as well as those whose annual income is up to 15,500 euros (for a single household) and up to 20,000 euros (for families).

The implementation of the plan will cost more than 800,000 euros and will cover about 5,200 people, the social ministry said.

The aim is to support low-income retirees and provide them with quality services, while supporting and stimulating the development of domestic tourism in mountainous areas.

Another government program for subsidized summer holidays and affordable recreation is currently under way in Cyprus, targeting all permanent residents. It started on May 1 and lasts until the end of July.
