About smoking and cigarette prices

  • 85 евро - Such a fine should pay for smoking in a public place or premises outside a designated area. The same amount will have to pay for smoking in a car with a child under 14 years.
  • Court - If not a single violation, the penalty determined by the court. This can be a significant financial penalty, deportation, ban on visiting Cyprus.
  • 10 000 euro - Just so much to pay the owners of establishments that do not keep track of your visitors and allow them to smoke outside in designated areas.
