Cyprus introduces visa fees for Russians
The Republic of Cyprus introduces a visa fee for citizens of the Russian Federation for obtaining a national visa.
Until recently, Cypriot a national visa for Russians was issued free of charge. This attracted many citizens of the Russian Federation to the island.
But on September 12, the EU countries suspended the visa facilitation agreement with Russia. The validity of visas has been reduced, the visa fee has increased, visa denials have become more frequent.
Cyprus was the last to do this. The authorities of the country went in line with the common European policy and announced the introduction of a visa fee for Russians from December 1. It will be 80 euros, for children under 12 years old – 40 euros. Consideration of the application takes from 3 to 5 working days.
The Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) reminds that direct flights between the Russian Federation and Cyprus were stopped in the spring. You need to get to the country with transfers.
