Welcome to our website
Our High Commission in Nicosia offers a range of services to Australians, Cypriots and others. These include citizenship, passport and consular services, and legalisation of documents, and we can also help you if you would like to invest in Australia or do business with Australian companies.
Australia has a strong relationship with Cyprus. This relationship, which dates back to the 1950s, is based on very strong people-to-people links. The Cypriot community in Australia has contributed greatly to Australia's economic prosperity and the diversity of its culture, and the large Australian community resident in Cyprus likewise makes its contribution to the island's development. We now have formal social security and working holiday agreements between Australia and Cyprus and we are continuing to develop other means of co-operation.
Australia has supported active efforts for reconciliation and reunification in Cyprus since 1964 through continuing deployment of civilian police peacekeepers, and Australia and Cyprus share common interests in the United Nations. Both are also active members of the Commonwealth.
I hope you find this website useful - we welcome your suggestions for improvement. We also welcome visitors to our High Commission office in Nicosia.
