up

Q. Which side of the road should I drive on while in Cyprus?
A. While in Cyprus you must always remember to drive on the left hand side of the road. In Cyprus, we drive on the LEFT side of the road. NOT the right.

Pedestrians must remember that traffic moves on the LEFT side of the road. Therefore you must always:
  • Walk on the pavement. In case there is no pavement, walk on the right side of the road (ie. towards the oncoming traffic).
  • Look both to your right and left before crossing any road.

In case of an accident, call 199 immediately.

Q. I tried to use the “Snake Tree” to navigate the registration website, but nothing happens when I click on the step I need. Is it compulsory to fill in all the fields of the registration?
A.Please note that there is no compulsory step in the Easyconferences registration system. However, if you are using the registration for the first time, it is required to use the “Next” and “Back” buttons below each page to navigate. You may leave blank any information you need and still navigate with the “Next” button.
Once you complete the registration with the navigation buttons you can use the “Snake Tree” to skip to whichever registration page you wish to make changes. This is done so that an important step is not skipped accidentally on the initial registration.
Also please note that it is very important to go back and change your registration if you skipped important information on your initial registration (such as flight details, accommodation dates etc).
