Cyprus Fully Integrated into Schengen Information System

As of 25 July 2023, Cyprus is fully integrated into Schengen Information System (SIS) which is used for border management and internal security in Europe.

SIS supports the exchange of information among national police, border control, customs, visa and judicial authorities within the Schengen Area, and holds information in the form of alerts.

Joining SIS means the Cyprus authorities will be better positioned to identify and prevent security risks to Cypriot citizens and residents.

With the integration of Cyprus, the total number of SIS users climbs to 34 which consists of 23 EU Member States, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.
