• ​Cyprus' immigration system provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Cyprus is a member of the European Union. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by permit type.

•​ Business visitors obtain a Business Visa to travel to Cyprus if they are not visa exempt based on their nationality. Business visits are limited to 90 days in a 180-day period and require a detailed support/invitation letter outlining the nature and duration of activities.

•​ The main work authorization categories are the EU Intracompany Transferee (ICT) Permit, suitable for the intracompany transfer of managers, specialists and trainees from outside the EU; and the Employment Permit for Local Hi​​res, suitable for locally hired employees and intracompany transfers who do not qualify for an EU ICT Permit.​​

Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
