Applications

General

This section provides summary information for applicants wishing to work in or provide services or equipment to the temporary casino, satellite casinos or the ICR.

Before applying, we strongly urge applicants to familiarise themselves with our licensing principles, and the in-depth information contained in the section entitled ‘Licensing’ on the home page.

The Commission requires licensees or prospective licensees to engage with the Commission in an open and co-operative way and disclose matters which the Commission would reasonably expect to know. A licensee’s or prospective licensee’s failure to work in an open and co-operative way will be considered as an adverse factor and may result in an application rejection or a licence revocation. Licence applicants should provide the information the Commission needs to exercise its functions. Specifically, the Commission will wish to engage with applicants who are:

  • of the highest moral and professional standards
  • of a sound and stable financial background, and
  • have, where relevant, sufficient business acumen.

Once a licence has been granted, licensees must conduct themselves in a professional and honest manner, notifying the Commission of any issues or potential issue, as soon as they arise.

If you have any concerns or questions, email our Licensing team at: licensing@cgc.org.cy or telephone: 0035725573810
