All persons attending the Annual Meeting should check whether they need a visa to travel to Cyprus. Visa applications must be lodged no later than 15 days prior to travelling. The visas must be obtained in advance of travel as there are no facilities for issuing visas upon arrival at the airport.

Visa Application Process for EBRD Annual Meeting Participants

Procedures are in place to facilitate the visa application process for Annual Meeting participants.  Please bear in mind the following points when planning your participation:

  • Accredited diplomatic missions and consulates of the Republic of Cyprus worldwide have been informed about the EBRD Annual Meeting.  Any visa will be charged at the current rate. 

  • Annual Meeting participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements.  Those persons requiring visas should apply in good time to the Cypriot Embassy or consulate in their country of residence or, in the absence of a diplomatic mission, in a neighbouring country.

  • Please note that the only legal points of entry and exit to and from the territory of the Republic are the international airports of Larnaca and Paphos, and the ports of Larnaca, Limassol, Paphos and Latsi. Use of any other points of entry/exit operating without the authorisation of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus is considered illegal, under Article 12 of the Aliens and Immigration Law.

  • Details on how to obtain a visa can be found on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus. Visa application form and specific information by country can be found at:

Travellers are advised to check carefully that all particulars on their visa stamp, including the visa start date and passport number, are correct before travelling, as the Bank cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made by the Consulate.
