Cyprus Visa Application Centre now in 16 Indian cities

VFS Global has expanded the network of Cyprus Visa Application Centres (VACs) in India with the launch of centres in 4 new cities of Thiruvananthapuram, Goa, Gurugram, and Jaipur, which commenced operations on November 10. The expansion of the network of Cyprus VACs to a total of 16 cities in India signals the strengthening relationship in trade and tourism between the two counties.

Earlier, applicants in Thiruvananthapuram were required to travel to Chennai to complete their visa application process for Cyprus. Applicants can now benefit from applying in their own city, and can avail of the additional services, such as SMS updates, courier services, online tracking services, among others. The centre in Thiruvananthapuram was inaugurated by H.E. Demetrios A. Theophylactou, High Commissioner of Cyprus to India.

Speaking at the event, he, said, “It is a pleasure to inaugurate the Cyprus VAC, operated by VFS Global. The opening is quite timely, also due to a noticeable increase in visa related queries from Kerala. I do believe that this centre would further expand and enhance visa services and also promote people-to-people contacts, thus contributing to our bilateral relations. Kerala is a major state with a large percentage of human capital working abroad; therefore, the centre fulfils a vital service with respect to the provision of information and guidelines to applicants who intend on visiting Cyprus for tourism, business, study, as well as employment purposes. The centre would work in close cooperation with the Consular Department of the High Commission to achieve the goal of timely and efficient issuance of visas.”
VFS Global has served the Government of Cyprus in India since 2015. Globally, the company has been serving the client government since 2010, through a network of 21 VACs in seven countries.

According to Vinay Malhotra, COO – Middle East and South Asia, VFS Global, “Cyprus is fast emerging as a popular destination of choice for leisure and business travellers from India, due to its abundant natural beauty and historical heritage. As the number of visitors to this beautiful Mediterranean nation increases, we are proud and committed to expand the network of Cyprus Visa Application Centres across the South Asia region as a whole, with more centres planned in Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh in the coming months.”
