Territories[edit]

Visa requirements for Cypriot citizens for visits to various territories, disputed areas, partially recognized countries and restricted zones:

Europe
Africa
Asia
Caribbean and North Atlantic
Oceania
South Atlantic and Antarctica

Right to consular protection in non-EU countries[edit]

When in a non-EU country where there is no Cypriot embassy, Cypriot citizens as EU citizens have the right to get consular protection from the embassy of any other EU country present in that country.

Northern Cyprus is generally not recognized as a country (exception: Turkey). The non-EU countries Australia, Pakistan, and the United States of America accept a Northern Cypriot passport as a travel document, but require pre-arrival visas, and so do the EU members France and the United Kingdom.

Non-ordinary passports[edit]

Holders of various categories of official Cypriot passports have additional visa-free access to the following countries - China (diplomatic or service passports), Cuba (diplomatic or service passports), Guyana (diplomatic or service passports), Egypt (diplomatic, official, service or special passports), India (diplomatic or official passports), Iran (diplomatic or service passports), Kazakhstan (diplomatic or service passports), Kuwait (diplomatic or service passports), Mongolia (diplomatic or official passports), Qatar (diplomatic passports), Russia (diplomatic and service passports) and United Arab Emirates (diplomatic, service or special passports). Holders of diplomatic or service passports of any country have visa-free access to Cape Verde, Ethiopia, Mali and Zimbabwe.
