Tran Thi Hieu Hanh, Deputy Director of the HCM City Department of External Affairs, said the consulate will boost cooperation between Ho Chi Minh City and Cyprus and promised the Department’s support.

The consulate will be in charge of granting short-term visas to Vietnamese heading to Cyprus for vacation or business purposes.
