While in Cyprus, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation to be very different from what you find in the United States. The People with Disabilities Law mandates that public buildings and tourist facilities built after 1999 be accessible to all. However, older buildings frequently lack access for persons with disabilities. Narrow or nonexistent sidewalks and lack of transport, parking spaces, accessible toilets, and elevators all pose problems for persons with disabilities. Cypriot law prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in employment, education, access to health care, or in the provision of other state services, and in practice the government generally enforces the provisions.
