An overview of a Permanent Residency Permit – Category F.

Category F is one of the residency permit types in Cyprus. It gives the right to its holder to live in Cyprus on a permanent basis but does not allow them to work. This permit is applicable only to third country nationals (non-EU).


Category F is the most popular residence permit in Cyprus and it gives many benefits to its holder. If you are willing to come to Cyprus often and you do not want to be bothered with a tourist visa and count days how long you can actually stay on the island or if you wish to relocate with children and send them to school or just move here as a retirement option later – this type of visa is a right choice for YOU.

We know that there are many service providers out there who offer their help and assistance regarding Immigration issues. But have you asked yourself, or asked them, what are they actually going to do for you? Or maybe have you already tried various service providers in Cyprus or abroad?
