Foreign Ministry launches online platform and calls on Cypriots abroad to register

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announces that as of today 31/3/2020, at 13.00 Cyprus time, Cypriot citizens abroad can register on the new online platform www.connect2cy.gov.cy, and appeals to all our compatriots abroad to do so as soon as possible.

In the midst of the global crisis caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, it is extremely important that all Cypriot citizens abroad register on the platform, as this will enable the Foreign Ministry to map more accurately the presence of Cypriots around the world and provide consular assistance and support more effectively in cases of need, through the network of Diplomatic Missions of the Republic abroad.

With the launch of this new, contemporary platform, which was brought forward because of the crisis, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is establishing a direct channel of communication with users, aiming to reconnect Cypriot citizens abroad with their home country and to convey to them in a secure and timely manner important information on issues that may be of interest to them.

The connect2cy platform has been designed from the beginning on a flexible and dynamic basis and will continue to be developed and upgraded to meet the requirements of Crisis Management in our times.

More information and technical support is available through the National Crisis Management Center at (+357) 22 801000.
