COVID19: Cyprus campaign to register Cypriots abroad

1 min read

Cyprus’ Foreign Ministry has launched a new online platform “connect2cy” where Cypriots abroad can register through the website www.connect2cy.gov.cy during the coronavirus crisis.

It has urged every Cypriot who is abroad to sign up as soon as possible.

The Ministry says that in the midst of a global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the registration of all Cypriot citizens who are abroad is “extremely important”.

It is expected to enhance the Ministry’s ability to precisely chart the presence of Cypriots around the globe and “be in a position to offer consular help in an even more effective manner where it is necessary, also through the network of the Republic`s diplomatic missions abroad”.

The platform was fast-tracked due to the crisis for the Foreign Ministry to establish a channel of communication with users to reconnect Cypriot citizens abroad with their country and to inform them immediately of important matters of interest to them.

For further information and technical support, citizens may contact the Ministry through the Crisis Management National Centre at +357 22801000.
