Register as unemployed

Job seekers can register and renew their application for employment at any District Labour Office in Cyprus. The registration can only be done by the physical presence of the Jobseeker to any of the PES offices. The renewal of the registration can be done at any PES Office regardless of their place of residence in Cyprus.

Upon registration the EU citizens that register with the PES for the first time, must present their identity card or passport, as well as the prototypes or valid copies of their diplomas/degrees (including gymnasium/ lyceum certificates) and certificates of any professional exam successfully completed. The Certificates MUST be officially translated in Greek or English.

In addition, if they are persons who, because of special circumstances, require assistance beyond that normally given to find and retain employment (e.g. disabled or entitled to child benefit etc) must present documented evidence.

Job seekers must visit the District Labour Offices and personally renew their application for employment as follows:
    • Unemployed persons and those seeking a part time job, once every six weeks
    • Persons seeking a better job, once every six months
    • Persons seeking employment with a specific employer or at a specific location, once every two months.
