VISA/TEMPORARY RESIDENCE PERMIT REQULATIONS FOR NON-EU STUDENTS
 
VERY IMPORTANT
 
1. You must visit the International Support Office to receive the original Blue slip and to get informed of the Residence Permit Card procedure.

2. Once the requested documents are ready, you should visit again the International Support Office to stamp the documents, and arrange an appointment with the Migration Department.

3. The Migration Department will notify us when your application is evaluated, in order for you to pay and provide them with your biometrics.

Please be informed that before you apply for your residence permit card, you must visit the International Support Office, to confirm and stamp your documents.

You can visit the Migration Department only after an appointment, arranged between the University of Cyprus and the Migration Department. You will be informed of the date/time.

4. You will be able to travel to Cyprus, after being granted authorisation through the on-line portal https://cyprusflightpass.gov.cy/en/home .

5. Countries are categorized according to their epidemiological status into categories A, B and C, with category A having the most favourable epidemiological status.

Please be informed of the measures that are applied by the Cypriot Government, based on the category that your country belongs to, regarding self-isolation rules and covid-19 testing.

6. You can also find useful information on the website https://www.ucy.ac.cy/graduateschool/en/inner-pages/467-covid19 
 
Within 10 days from the date of entry into the Republic of Cyprus, you should submit the following required documents in order to get your Cyprus Residence Permit card.

(In case self-isolation is required, the preparation of the documents can be done after the quarantine is over)
 
1. Application form M61, duly completed and signed.
 
2. Certified copy of passport, valid for at least 2 years.
 
3. Original Entry Permit (Blue Slip).
 
4. Acceptance Letter from the University of Cyprus, with a full description of the Program of Study and its duration.
 
5. Original medical examinations for hepatitis B and C, HIV and Syphilis as well as Chest X-Ray (testing for Tuberculosis). Upon arrival in Cyprus, each student must undergo these medical examinations. 
 
6. Proof of comprehensive Health Insurance in the Republic of Cyprus.
 
7. Confirmation from a bank in the Republic of Cyprus that the student has deposited a satisfactory amount to cover living expenses and tuition fees for the period that the residence permit is applied for (minimum balance €1000).
 
8. Rental Agreement/contract certified by the President of a Community Council (your landlord will be able to tell you where you can find the Community Council Area President).
 
9. €34,17 fee for the Application Form M61.
 
10. €70,00 fee for the Alien Registration document.
 
 
Important Notes:

• The International Support Office will inform you when your Pink slip is ready (the procedure takes approximately 3 months).
 
• Your Pink Slip will be automatically cancelled if you stay abroad for a period of more than three months. The International Support Office must be informed in order to apply for your Return Visa.

• Please do not make any money transactions in the northern occupied part of Cyprus. This is considered illegal practice and the Migration department will reject your application. You should also avoid using the airport in the northern part of Cyprus as it is an illegal point of entry.

• Please provide the International Support Office with your contact details in Cyprus (telephone, address and email).
 
  
RENEWAL OF VISA/TEMPORARY RESIDENCE PERMIT REQULATIONS FOR NON-EU STUDENTS
 
Your Temporary Residence Permit lasts for one year, so it is very important to renew your temporary residence permit every year until the end of your studies.
 
Please see below the required documents in order to get your Renewal Temporary Residence Permit:
 
1. Application form M61, duly completed and signed.
 
2. Copy of your passport, valid for at least 2 years.
 
3. University Registration Letter from the University of Cyprus, with full description of the Program of Study and its duration, stating that the University will cover repatriation expenses.

6. Copy of the Rental Agreement contract.
 
7. Copy of the certificate or contract of a private health insurance which states that you are covered in respect of all risks within the Republic of Cyprus.
