During the 4 months after coming to the Cyprus Republic, a candidate needs to provide an application to the Migration Authorities. There is no one standard procedure for submitting the documents. It depends on the status of every European citizen (employee, self-employed, pensioner). Despite this fact, the main process is not sophisticated, still, each local District Offices might have different requirements regarding the procedure. So, to make this process clearer and simpler, it is recommended to use independent advice in order to be informed about any requirements that can appear during the submission of an application.

A permanent residence permit can be provided to Citizens of the European Union that have been living in the Cyprus Republic during the 5 years period legally and uninterruptedly. Still, it must be taken into account that it is possible to leave the Republic for a period that doesn’t exceed six months during one year, or a longer period but only in case of military service or one long absence in case of pregnancy, childbirth, serious disease, study, professional training, a business trip to another Member State or a third country.

Family members that are non- E.U. nationals are eligible to submit documents during one month after the termination date of the validity of their Temporary Residence Card.

KEY NOTES:

  • • All family members that are not citizens of Member State, those who have the right to a stable living, can get a Permanent Residence Card with a term of 10 years. Such a Card can be prolonged automatically every 10 years from the date of submission, at the request of the interested person.
