Service Details

Enforcement Foreign Judgment

This service is available across Cyprus

Who Is This Service For?

Enforcing a foreign court judgment in Cyprus is necessary for individuals or entities who have obtained legal judgments outside of Cyprus and need to have them recognised and executed within the Cypriot jurisdiction. Therefore, this service is particularly useful for:

  • Individuals or businesses with a legally binding foreign judgment seeking enforcement in Cyprus.
  • Parties interested in the transnational enforcement of judgments for civil, commercial, or other legal matters.
Who Is This Service For?


  • This process to enforce foreign judgments will depend on whether the court judgment originated in a Member State of the European Union or not. 
  • If the court judgment to be enforced originated in another State of the European Union, a simplified system of enforcement is available under EC Regulation No. 1215/2012. Otherwise, the party wishing to enforce the judgment, must rely on the process known as exequatur.
  • The foreign judgment must be final and conclusive in its origin country.
  • It should not contradict any existing Cypriot law or public policy.
  • Compliance with specific treaties or EU regulations, if applicable.

Process: Our Approach

  1. Initial Assessment: Evaluation of the foreign judgment's eligibility for recognition and enforcement in Cyprus.
  2. Legal Documentation: Preparation of necessary documents for filing a recognition and enforcement request.
  3. Filing with Competent Authorities: Submitting the request to the appropriate Cypriot court or authority.
  4. Representation: Acting on your behalf throughout the legal proceedings in Cyprus.
