Apply for Residence Permit / Yellow Slip

At IBCCS Tax, we understand the importance of securing a stable foothold in Cyprus, particularly for European citizens intending to live, work, or establish a business in this thriving Mediterranean economy. Our expertise in handling the Yellow Slip application process, the Registration document for European (EU and EEA) citizens, ensures your transition into Cyprus is as seamless as possible.

The Yellow Slip, aptly named for the yellow paper on which it’s printed, is more than just a residence permit. It grants holders access to the same rights and benefits enjoyed by Cypriot citizens, including access to the healthcare system, labor market, and business opportunities.

Within the Yellow Slip framework, there are two commonly used forms: MEU1 and MEU2. MEU1 applies to EU members and their family members, who are also European citizens, while MEU2 is for non-European family members of EU citizens and third-country nationals.
