Opening individual and corporate bank accounts in Cyprus

We can set up local bank accounts in Cyprus for individuals of any nationality and for companies incorporated anywhere in the world. This can be a stand-alone service or be included in our new company incorporation package, or when you use our ready-made company service.

Once the account is open we can operate it on your behalf. We can arrange loan facilities, provide signatory services, obtain debit and credit cards, and set up online banking services for you.
