Due to the fact that 2 years ago, UK residents voted for withdrawal from the European Union, this month the Cyprus embassy, with the participation of VFS Global, opened four visa centres on the territory of the United Kingdom. To date, visa centres have appeared in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff.
Representative of VFS Global explained that although UK citizens are not required to obtain a visa for a tourist trip of less than 90 days, a rather large percentage of Britons spend more time in Cyprus. Also, visa centres will help foreign citizens residing in the UK to obtain a visa for a shorter period.
The relevance of this issue is due to the fact that Britain has traditionally been the largest source of inbound tourism for Cyprus, which receives a large number of UK immigrants, including retired homebuyers.
