EURES Cyprus

Working & Living in Cyprus

The free movement of persons, and especially workers, is one of the most important issues for the European integration and the Single Market. Therefore, the European Union has adopted a series of Community Regulations and Directives, to secure the right of the nationals of all member states for free access in the labour market and equal treatment, by the member states, between their nationals and the nationals of other member states.

The principle of the free movement of workers within Europe is applied in Cyprus since 1st May 2004. It covers the citizens of all member states of the E.U. It also covers the citizens of Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, which belong to the European Economic Area, as well as the citizens of Switzerland.The members of the family of a European national have also the right to exercise an employed or self-employed activity in the Republic of Cyprus. At the same time all Cyprus citizens are free to move and work in another member state of the EU.

EURES Cyprus is facilitating the movement of Workers in and out of Cyprus through the mandate that is given to the network by the (EU) REGULATION 2016/589 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL (13 April 2016) on a European network of employment services (EURES), workers' access to mobility services and the further integration of the EU labour markets.
