Procedure - Special Permit for Domestic Workers/ Workers

Information on the arrival of nationals from countries that do not fall into Categories A and B

1. The Civil Registry and Migration Department informs the public that a permit to enter the Republic of Cyprus will be granted for persons employed as agricultural / livestock workers or as domestic workers, from countries that do not fall into Categories A and B, based on the risk assessments, such as announced by the Ministry of Health.

2. After obtaining the entry permit or the relevant certificate (in case the entry permit has expired and it was not possible for the alien to arrive in the Republic due to the restrictive measures), the employers must pay in advance:

(i) the amount of € 800.00 in the case of domestic workers, or of the employees who have a certified contract by the Labour Office

(ii) the amount of € 500.00 for the cases of employees in the agriculture / livestock sector.

The above amounts relate to part of the cost of the isolation of aliens in tourist accommodation for a total period of 14 days from the date of arrival, as well as the cost of two laboratory tests for the coronavirus pandemic (one test upon arrival and a repeat test 12 days after their arrival).

3. The employers will submit a request for a special permit to enter the Republic (special permit) through the platform www.cyprusflightpass.gov.cy.

4. The above amounts can be paid online from the CyprusFligtPass platform. The payment can be made once a special permit has been approved.
