Cyprus has aligned its immigration law and regulations with the EU’s acquis communautaire on matters such as entry and stay of third country nationals for self- employment and study purposes and long-term residence.

Nationals of non-EU countries who have been residing in Cyprus for at least five years are entitled to Long-Term Residence Permits which have an indefinite limit; their issue is a requirement imposed on all EU member states. Visa obligations for foreign nationals are in line with EU obligations.

Cyprus is a signatory to the Schengen agreement and is currently going through the pre-implementation evaluation procedure.
