Cyprus Pink Slip

Pink Slip is about temporary residence permit in Cyprus and basically allows Non-European Union passport holders to extend their stay in the island. The period that Pink Slip allows, is more than 3 months (90 days). Additionally, it enables tourists and visitors to extend their stay, despite the duration of their primary visa. Must be noted that the application has to be done before visa expires. Applications must be applied to the Immigration Department of the city that the candidate lives.

Under this permission, a Pink Slip holder is allowed to live in Cyprus as a visitor, despite the Yellow Slip which concerns work permit. Moreover, the candidate and his/her family (partner and children under 18 years old) submits the application at the same time, with separate forms and can independently get their temporary residence card.
