How to Get a Transit Visa for Cyprus

Cyprus Transit Visa

Cyprus Transit Visa

Cyprus has a pretty straightforward transit visa process.

This visa entitles aliens who are travelling from one country to another country to pass through Cyprus. This visa may be issued for one, two or exceptionally several transits, provided that the duration in each case does not exceed five days and provided that the entry of the foreigner into the territory of the destination country is guaranteed and that the route taken normally requires transit through Cyprus.

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Cyprus Transit Visa.
