Beware of fraudsters

Beware of fake lawyers and of law firms offering to help asylum-seekers, refugees or subsidiary protection beneficiaries for very high fees.

You should also beware of criminal organisations that promise immigration and employment opportunities in other European Union countries, or Canada, Australia and the USA or elsewhere, in exchange for large sums of money.

  • Do not put your lives into the hands of these ruthless fraudsters.
  • Do not believe them.
  • Do not fall victim to their scams.

Free legal advice and other types of assistance and support to asylum-seekers are offered by a number of NGOs and other charitable organisations in Cyprus. See our Where can I seek help section for more information.
