Cyprus Relocation Information

Moving to Cyprus is a life changing experience and requires knowledge in many areas. Whether you are buying property in Paphos or renting in Limassol, if you need local Cypriot movers or help finding local schools we have done the research and put together some useful information to help make the rest of your move as stress free as possible.

Working in Cyprus

All EU citizens have the right to live, work and buy property in Cyprus. There are no restrictions, however if you intend to remain in the country for more than 90 days you should begin the application process for a temporary residence permit as soon as possible. If you will be working for a foreign company for an extended period of time, your employer should arrange your application for you. As a EU citizen you enter Cyprus with your passport or national identity card and begin to seek employment. 

If you are from a country that is not a member of the EU you must obtain a work visa or permit to work in Cyprus. Residents of other non-EU countries can visit Cyprus for up to three months without a visa but will need to be granted a work permit or visa before entering Cyprus. The ministry of labour must determine that a Cypriot or an EU citizen isn't available to do the job before they issue a work permit. A work permit, when granted, is usually valid for three months or a year.
