Companies registered in any country can transfer their registered office in the Republic of Cyprus, provided that the legislation of the country of origin allows for such transfer. Also, the Articles of Association of the company must provide for the continuation of the company under the legal status of another approved country or jurisdiction.

Once the approved name with which the company will continue to operate in the Republic of Cyprus the following should be submitted by hand or by post, certified by a registered lawyer in the Republic of Cyprus, to the Registrar of Companies:

  • Application of overseas company for its continuation in the Republic(ME1);

  • Total fee € 130.00 for the above documents, plus an optional €100,00 for accelerated procedure (payable in cash, cheque, deduction from an account held by the applicant in the Registrar of Companies or bank transfer).

Upon registration by the Registrar, the Temporary Certificate of Continuation of company is issued. After 6 months and with an extension of 3 months from the date of issue of the above certificate, the overseas company submits to the Registrar of Companies, by hand or post, the declaration of overseas company (ME4) and the Certificate of Continuation of Company is issued.
