Default While waiting for temporary residency......

Quite possibly my silliest question to date.......

Anyone know whether you need to stay in Cyprus while your application for an MUE3 is being processed and if you are a couple would you both need to stay and roughly how long do they take after application?

Cheers

Jim

Cheers Nigel - thanks really good to know - glad I asked now!

I am surprised I must admit but it does definitely give more options and flexibility than I expected to have with end of transition looming

Now need to figure out what options are possible regarding mail etc. if in UK.....

Jim - You already have a MEU1?

Before you can apply for a MEU3, you must have been legally resident in Cyprus for 5 years.

Never mind, you don't have to be in Cyprus while your MEU1 application's being processed but you will need something to prove your living here, such as a rental agreement.

When I had to reapply in 2007 following a change in the law, I took the Title Deed of my property, in which I had been living since 2004. But as it takes the Land Registry sooooooo long to do anything that has to do with deeds, it only showed the land. "How can you be living there" she said "it's just a plot of land". I explained that the application to add our house to the deed was submitted to the Land Registry in 2004. No further comments of questions from her. (And I eventually got the 'full' Title Deed in 2011)

Thanks Nigel - guess that's what they mean by "title deeds available".....

If the residency application is completed properly with correct documentation etc. Do they contact you during the process or does it just "happen"?

When you make the appointment with immigration they will advise as to what documentation you will need to bring with you. At the appointment, which you must attend in person, they will check your paperwork and if everything is correct they issue the MEU1 there and then, no waiting.

How long are people having to wait between requesting an MEU1 appointment and the date of the actual appointment? I'm especially interested in appointments at the Larnaca immigration office.

Thanks!
