Residential Permit

The legal requirements for visiting or staying in Cyprus depend on citizenship – European Union (EU) or non-European Union (EU) citizen – reason for entry into Cyprus and the intended duration of the stay.

cyprus-residential permitBecause the Republic of Cyprus is a member of the European Union, all citizens of other EU and EEA (European Economic Area) countries do not require a visa to enter, have the same rights of residence as Cypriot citizens and are entitled to the same conditions of employment and social insurance. Non-EU dependants (the spouse and children) of EU citizens are entitled to these same rights.

Citizens of countries that are not part of the European Union who are planning a visit or move to the Republic of Cyprus should enquire at the Cyprus Embassy of their home country for up-to-date information on entry and residency requirements.
