LIST B: GREEN LIST COUNTRIES

 

Please note we no longer process "Student Visa" applications due to the increasingly excessive bureaucracy of the system which is difficult for a small institution like ours to fulfil. Therefore anyone requiring a visa to come to Cyprus will have to apply themselves for non student visas (such as "Tourist Visas" and "Long Stay Visas").

 

If you are citizen of any of the following countries you do not need a visa for stays of less than three months (90 days):

 

A
Antigua, Argentina, Australia, Albania

B
Bahamas, Barbados, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Bosnia-Herzegovina

C
Canada, Chile, Costa Rica

E
El Salvador

F
FYROM (Skopje)

G
Guatemala

H
Honduras


J
Japan

K
Korea (Republic of South)

M
Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Montenegro

N

New Zealand, Nicaragua

P
Panama, Paraguay

S
Serbia, Seychelles, Singapore, St. Kitts and Nevis

T
Taiwan

U
United States of America, Uruguay

V
Venezuela

 

If you are a citizen of a country on this list and you want to stays longer than three months it is usually possible to extend the initial visitors visa once you are in Cyprus, subject to the approval of the Cyprus immigration authorities. This approval is usually based on whether they believe you have enough money to live on without taking or attempting to take paid employment in Cyprus, and that you possess medical insurance. Disease control tests might also be necessary, including a blood test.

 

 

LIST C: RED LIST COUNTRIES

 

All countries not listed in List A or List B above.

 

Please note we no longer process "Student Visa" applications due to the increasingly excessive bureaucracy of the system which is difficult for a small institution like ours to fulfil. Therefore anyone requiring a visa to come to Cyprus will have to apply themselves for non student visas (such as "Tourist Visas" and "Long Stay Visas").

 

If you are not a citizen of one of the countries in List A or List B you require a visa to enter Cyprus. We no longer assist with the applications for these visas and you will have to undertake all of the work in obtaining a visa yourself. Details on how to do this are available from your local Cyprus Embassy, Cyprus High Commission or Cyprus Consulate. These are listed here.
