VFS Global Launches New Cyprus Visa Centres in UK

VFS Global Launches New Cyprus Visa Centres in UK

To offer greater accessibility and a seamless application process to UK residents and foreign nationals in the UK who plan to travel to the popular holiday destination of Cyprus and need visa related services, VFS Global has launched four new application centres for the Embassy of Republic of Cyprus.

According to Breaking Travel News, for higher quality and a more personalised service, applicants can opt for the premium service at these centres that offer assistance by dedicated staff member during the submission process – including assistance in filling in the visa application and verification of documents and free access to photocopy, photo booth, SMS and courier services.

Although UK visitors do not need a visa if they are staying less than 90 days, the new service will be of use to those who stay longer, such as those with holiday homes, those who spend more time in Cyprus visiting relatives, or those on long term business trips. 

Foreign nationals living in the UK may need a visa for shorter periods, depending on their circumstances.

Cyprus is a hugely popular destination for UK visitors. 

The latest statistics show tourist arrivals from the UK increased by 25 per cent in March 2018 compared to March 2017.

The United Kingdom constituted the main source of tourism for Cyprus, with 35.5 per cent of arrivals. 

The newly launched services were inaugurated by Euripides Evriviades, high commissioner, Embassy of Republic of Cyprus in London. 

Commenting on the launch, Anirudh Pratap Singh, chief operating officer, Europe, VFS Global, said: “Cyprus has always been a popular holiday destination for residents of the UK with nearly a million British nationals visiting this exotic location every year. 

“Many foreign nationals living in the UK also visit Cyprus each year. 

“We are confident that our world-class service expertise and service solutions like the Premium Service at our centres will ensure a pleasant experience and efficiently cater to increasing demand.”

VFS Global currently offers visa related assistance to the Cyprus mission in London with ongoing discussions to extend the scope of services to Consular and Passport services in the upcoming months.

The extended working hours and an array of specialised services on offer by VFS Global, ensure that the visa application process more convenient for traveller.
