High Commission of the Republic of Cyprus in Pretoria

Welcome to our Website







It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the website of the High Commission of the Republic of Cyprus in Pretoria.

This site is intended primarily to provide user friendly information about Cyprus and the activities of the High Commission in its pursuit of enhancing bilateral relations of the Republic of Cyprus with South Africa and the other nine Southern African countries our Mission is concurrently accredited (Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Malawi, Mozambique, Mauritius and Madagascar). The site has been formed in order to assist the sizable Cypriot communities in the Southern African region by providing them with the best possible consular information.


The site contains a wide range of information about Cyprus’ history, the Cyprus question, tourist and consular issues, the overseas Cypriots, trade and business, education and culture, the relations of Cyprus with the European Union and current news from the island. The website also provides useful links to other Cypriot websites for additional information on Cyprus.


Cyprus has a special relationship with the Republic of South Africa. With around 25.000 South African citizens of Cypriot descent, the site aims also to provide channels of communication between the Diaspora and Cyprus and to give to our compatriots living in South Africa and in the other countries of our parallel accreditation the best possible consular support.


Every consular service is explained in detail (Consular Section - Consular Services) and all relevant application forms are available for downloading. The collection of information from our website on various consular services will make these services more efficient and quick.


Through the page "Consular Announcements" (Consular Section - Consurar Services) all applicants are immediately informed when their passports, identity cards and other documents reach the High Commission.


The site is intended to also provide Cypriots living in Southern Africa with information regarding upcoming events of the High Commission and the organized communities of the Diaspora in their country of residence, so as to enable them to have frequent contacts between them and to be informed on the local community activities [at the page "Upcoming Events" (Overseas Cypriots)].

Since November 2012 the High Commission has a page in facebook for better communication with the members of our community. Anyone can have access to the page from our website (second icon on the right). Thousands of photos from our activities as well as from the activities of the Cyprus Brotherhood of South Africa and the various Hellenic communities in the country can be seen and downloaded.


We would like to encourage all Cypriots living in the South African region to register with the High Commission through the relevant page of our website (Overseas Cypriots - Registration of the Cypriot Citizens Living in Southern Africa), so as to enable us to contact them in an emergency situation and whenever important information needs to be circulated.


We hope you will find plenty of useful information on this website.
