What is a stop list in Cyprus and how to avoid it?
The Cypriot “stop list” may include:
- Based on illegal residence in Cyprus.
- Having committed a crime in Cyprus.
- Without waiting for the decision to grant asylum, leaving Cyprus.
- Departure from Cyprus through the occupied territory of Northern Cyprus.
At the same time, you may be banned from entering the country for life. If your reason is an illegal stay in Cyprus, then you need to live outside Cyprus as long as your illegal stay on the island lasted. Only after that it will be possible to make a request to the Ministry of the Interior of Cyprus to lift the ban.
A visa overdue for at least one day – and you are on the stop-list.
The stop list is valid indefinitely, that is, until the lawyer asks to delete it from the list.
