The British High Commission in Nicosia has welcomed the Cyprus government’s decision to extend the deadline for UK nationals in Cyprus to apply for residency.

Cyprus` Civil Registry and Migration Department announced on Tuesday that “in the case of a NO deal Brexit, UK Nationals and their Family members who have resided in Cyprus prior to 31/10/2019 or as per date decided by the EU, they retain the right to continue to submit applications under the directive 2004/38/EC (MEU1, MEU2, MEU3) after 31/10/2019 and obtain the relevant residence permits, which are going to be valid until 31/12/2020.”

The British High Commission wrote on his Twitter account on Wednesday that “we welcome #Cyprus government’s decision to extend the deadline for #UK Nationals in Cyprus to apply for residency until 31/12/2020. This will ensure our citizens still have plenty of time to confirm their right to live in Cyprus after we leave the EU”.
