What is a testament, and what are the requirements for the testator in Cyprus?
This official legal document is a statement that all members of his family have the right to a will. The testator has the following requirements:
- The age of majority. Persons under 18 years of age are not eligible to make a will.

To obtain the right to prepare an application must meet absolutely all the above requirements. The slightest discrepancy deprives him of this legal capacity.
