U.S. Customs and Border Protection has extended through July 13, 2027, the import restrictions on certain categories of archaeological objects and ethnological material originating in Cyprus. CBP is also amending the list of items covered by these restrictions to reflect (1) additional categories of archaeological material from an extended date range from the end of the Classical Period to A.D. 1770 and (2) additional categories of ethnological material including architectural material, documents and manuscripts, traditional clothing, and emblems of the state.

The restrictions now cover archaeological material ranging in date from approximately the 11th millennium BC to AD 1770, including categories of ceramic, stone, metal, glass, enamel, ivory, bone, shell, and wood; and ethnological material ranging in date from approximately the 4th century A.D. to A.D. 1878, including ecclesiastical ritual and ceremonial objects, emblems of the state, structural and decorative architectural material, documents and manuscript, and traditional clothing and textiles.

The designated list of goods covered by these import restrictions can be found here.
