Fears that the number of civil marriages on the Paphos coast will be drastically reduced this year due to the unpredictable global coronavirus situation appear to be coming true.

This is what Philenews reported Thursday, adding that local authorities are now faced with the worst-case scenario given that these services are mainly provided by foreigners.

Some reservations have been completely canceled and others postponed to a date not yet specified, insiders said.
