Application process and requirements
The possession of a valid visa does not grant the holder an unreserved right of entry to the Republic of Cyprus. The applicant may as well be required to present certain evidence upon arrival.
Submitting the aforementioned documents does not guarantee automatic issuance of the visa. The Diplomatic Mission (or Consulate) of the Republic of Cyprus, where the visa application is lodged, reserves the right to request additional documents. These may include the following:
In the absence of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Cyprus and the applicant’s country of citizenship and/or of habitual residence, or in the absence of a Cyprus Diplomatic Mission in the applicant’s country of citizenship and/or of habitual residence, the latter can submit the Visa Application, to the most accessible Diplomatic Mission or Consulate of the Republic of Cyprus. In such cases visa applications can be submitted via post of DHL provided that the relevant details have been agreed a priori with the Cyprus Diplomatic Mission.
