On Friday morning a bomb exploded under the car of the Cypriot association's head of refereeing.
No one was injured in the incident, but in response all first division matches in the country were called off over the weekend.
Irish FA Chief Executive Patrick Nelson said he was confident the national side's friendly in Nicosia on Wednesday will take place.
He said: "The latest information is that the incident would have nothing to do with international football and wouldn't put the game in jeopardy.
"However, we're being sensible, we're monitoring developments and we're going to be in touch with the Cypriot FA again.
"We're waiting for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to comment on it and we're keeping our eyes on it."
Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill named a 22-man squad for the match, with Southampton's Steven Davis and West Brom duo Gareth McAuley and Chris Brunt included.
