Temporary residence for UK and non-European citizens can be acquired by purchasing/renting a property and providing evidence of sufficient income to support the individual and any dependents.

Your application will take a approximately 4 of 6 months for approval, once submitted. However, once applied you are allowed to stay in Cyprus until the temporary residence permit card is issued.

Under this category you must not stay outside of Cyprus more than three months, until the application for temporary residence is approved.

Temporary residency must be renewed annually and the applicant must reside in Cyprus for at least 183 days per year.

Under this permit, you are allowed to live in Cyprus (without the right to work). Also, your family members, spouse, and children (under 18 years old), can get the Cyprus residence status as dependants. The whole family applies at the same time; each family member files a separate application form and gets his temporary residence card.
