At the moment we get a few requests from our new clients about the time frame of the bank account opening in Cyprus and that it takes ”ages” to get opened.
Since we take such requests serious and want o provide as much information as possible then below you find the explanation and the requirements.
1. How long does it take, I have been waiting 7 days now?
Normally the account is opened within 3 – 4 days IF all documents are delivered to the bank as original. The entire process depends very much on the client and can take from 7 – 14 days to be completed.
Important to have in mind is, that compared to our competition and many other companies providing such services, then we don’t open the bank accounts in Cyprus our self, and we don’t issue “sub accounts” no, what you get with CCLOGIC is a real bank account with an IBAN number and a SWIFT code to send and receive international money transfers. This can depending on the work load of the bank take some time and sometimes also exceed the above mentioned time frame.
Since we have several Cyprus Banks to work with, then we are only able to list below the general requirements they can vary from bank to bank.
1. The Bank Account opening application need to be signed, scanned and returned to us electronically.
2. The Application forms need to be send by courier to our address in Cyprus as original together with a copy of Passport, Utility Bill and Reference letter.
Upon receivable of above we submit everything to the Bank that open the Cyprus Bank Account and from that stage it normally only takes 3 – 4 days.
However, the Internet Banking system to access you Bank Account will take about 7 to 14 days before it is accessible for you since the PIN code will be send by courier to you and you need it to access your Bank Account.
