It is a possible scenario, the Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides shared on Tuesday, while waiting for the arrival of the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is expected on the island in spring.

Most European Union members are under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and permitted to travel into the US without a visa. Travelers should gain approval prior to their journey, from the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), which makes them eligible to travel for tourism or business and stay 90 days or less without obtaining a visa.

Cyprus needs to meet some criteria first on crime, security and terrorism which are part of implemented and signed agreement between the two countries on Preventing and Combating Serious Crime.

The joint meetings with the interior and justice ministers will take place to discuss how to achieve this goal and as Christodoulides said “Our aim is to have developments towards that direction within 2020”.
