The British High Commission has advised that there is a rumour circulating that the Cypriot Government has stopped issuing MEU1/MEU3 documents because of Brexit.

Residency documents are being issued normally by the Cypriot authorities.

The British High Commission in Cyprus is encouraging UK nationals resident in Cyprus to regularise their residency status and safeguard their rights after Brexit by applying for their MEU1 or MEU3 residency documents as soon as possible.

If the UK leaves the EU with no deal on 31 October, the Cypriot Government has confirmed that they will process any applications for MEU1/MEU3 which are in the pipeline, so it is important to start the process as soon as possible.

In the event of No Deal, after 31 October, UK nationals resident in Cyprus will be classed as third country nationals and the residency process is then likely to be longer and more involved and it is unlikely that any rights acquired due to the length of residency will be honoured.

If you do not have an MEU1 and/or MEU3, please go to the Immigration Department with your passport. They will tell you what documentation they require you to bring and will either give you a firm appointment or tell you to just turn up with your paperwork and it will be processed.

If you have been here continuously for 5 years or more and do not have your MEU1, please tell the reception desk that you wish to obtain your MEU1 and MEU3 in one go and they should give you two slips of paper, one with the requirements for the MEU1, and a second with the requirements for the MEU3.

And a final reminder for those who have been living here for a long time. Any residency stamps you may have in your passport are now of no consequence - the only paperwork which will be recognized is the MEU1 and MEU3. Reside

Please remember that without an MEU1 and/or MEU3, post-Brexit, you will only be able to stay in Cyprus for up to 90 days in every 180 visa-free.

Does that mean people can stay in Cyprus 6 months of the year without a visa ?.I always thought it was 90 days in any one year . Regards Palmtree .

An EU citizen can stay in another EU country for 90 days with only their passport or official Identity card.

For longer than 90 days they need to register, officially during that initial 90 period.

The situation is different for citizens of non-EU (third country) citizens which is why the BHC is advising that British citizens officially register their residential status.

The way it currently works as in the first post 90 days stay in 180 without a visa for , some favourable countries non EEA visitors .
Europe wide not just in Cyprus.
Strictly number of days applied in each 180 segment., not the same as 180 in 360. So you cannot stay 100 days first then do the other 80 cos you will be over the first 90 in your first stay.

Calculator here , if you can work it out.

This is historical dont know how up to date it is. May not be the same rules /calculations when we leave.


Enjoy !

ETIAS will be kicking in I think early 2021 so even more bureaucracy.
