U.S. visa will soon no longer be required for Cypriot passport holders

We are rushing to bring to you the latest news from Cyprus.

A working group has been formed to expedite procedures for cancelling visas for Cypriot passport holders who wish to travel to the United States.

Three Cypriot ministers have held today a joint meeting with the Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Mr. Carl Risch, to strengthen the cooperation between Cyprus and the United States of America in this respect.

In particular, the progress made in joining Cyprus to the list of countries whose citizens do not need a visa to enter the United States (Visa-Free Visa Program) was examined, and it was decided to immediately create a group consisting of competent representatives from both governments for further actions.
