Requirements for 2022


As a general rule the Cyprus Immigration Authority does not grant a work permit to third country citizens ( i.e. citizens not resident in any EU State), if it might deprive a local Cypriot resident of work.


However there are exceptions to this rule and a Work Permit is granted in the following examples:


  1. A Chinese citizen is setting up a Chinese restaurant in Cyprus and he needs a Chinese cook. A work permit will be granted to one or two if necessary. The same goes for Lebanese or Syrian or Japanese cooks.
  2. A Forex company needs a highly specialized manager for controlling its operations and cannot find one in Cyprus.
  3. A mining company needs specialized workers but cannot find them in Cyprus.
  4. An energy company needs experienced platform workers which cannot be found in Cyprus.


This is the general policy of the Migration Department will  grant a work permit if it is persuaded that it will not interfere with the local work force. Cyprus Immigration services are one of our top expertise fields in the Immigration range of services. If you need to read more information about Cyprus Immigration please follow this link.
