Cyprus Has Not Been Added to the Visa Waiver Program

Diversity Visa

There have been widespread press reports this week that Cyprus has been added to the Visa Waiver Program.  These reports are false.  While progress continues to be made, Cyprus has not yet met all of the threshold requirements for admission to the program.  Cypriots wishing to travel to the United States still require a visa.  For information on how to apply, we refer you to the Official U.S. Department of State Visa Appointment Service for Cyprus website.

For accurate, current information regarding the Visa Waiver Program, we refer you to the website of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
