Entry requirements for UK nationals

British passports holding the endorsement 'British Citizen' must be valid on arrival; for all other endorsements passports must be valid three months beyond period of intended stay. For holders of passports endorsed British Citizen, no visa is required. No visa is required for a touristic stay of up to 90 days for holders of passports endorsed British National (overseas), British Overseas Territories Citizen (and containing a Certificate of Entitlement to the Right of Abode issued by the United Kingdom and UK residence stamp), British Subject (and containing a Certificate of Entitlement to the Right of Abode issued by the United Kingdom and UK residence stamp), or British Overseas Territories Citizen issued to residents of Gibraltar. No visa is required for holders of a valid Schengen Type C visa, provided the visitor has entered the Schengen Area before arriving in Cyprus.

Entry requirements for Canada

Canadian nationals must have a passport valid for three months beyond the period of intended stay. No visa is required for stays of up to 90 days, provided that entry into Cyprus is undertaken for touristic purposes only.

Australian nationals must have a passport valid for three months beyond the period of intended stay. No visa is required for stays of up to 90 days, provided that entry into Cyprus is undertaken for touristic purposes only.

Entry requirements for Irish nationals

Irish nationals must hold a passport valid upon arrival. No visa is required.

Passport/Visa Note

Travellers, except EEA nationals, should hold an onward or return ticket and documentation necessary for that journey, as well as sufficient funds for the period of intended stay in Cyprus. It is also advisable to have a hotel reservation. Extensions are available to visa-exempt nationals. Travellers should note that foreigners entering Cyprus north of the UN-patrolled 'green line' are deemed by the Government of the Republic of Cyprus to have entered illegally, and can be fined when crossing to the south (EU). Policies and procedures are subject to sudden changes, and visitors should check on the current situation before departing for Cyprus. NOTE: It is highly recommended that your passport has at least six months validity remaining after your intended date of departure from your travel destination. Immigration officials often apply different rules to those stated by travel agents and official sources.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
