You get the normal 90 day visa when you come in, but have to get your residency permit during the 90 days.

How do you get this? Is it right you need to get a medical, and are there any grounds they can refuse you on?

Yes you need a medical, a police record check and to show means of support I believe (money in bank)

Pugsey,

They can refuse you residency if you fail the medical on the grounds of being a carrier of certain conditions, the most usual one being HIV Positive or AIDS. Other conditions also carry an instant refusal.

Other grounds for refusal are that you fail the Police Record Check in the UK. That is, that you are known to be an hibitual criminal or are wanted on any outstanding warrants. Also you must be able to show that you can support yourself in the long term without having to seek work to stay. It is acceptable that after a period of time it maybe necassary for you to find work should your circumstances change but, for example, if you had 500 in the bank and no other regular income and it was suspected that your main intention was to come to work then you would be refused.

Anybody know if a CRB Enhanced level in the UK would that be sufficient for the Police Record Check? I hold a recent one of these for the work that I do? Thanks. Sandie

You don't need a police check for the standard annual residency. Yo will, however, need it to buy property.



Ian



PS. Asil N was a TC, so didn't need permission to enter, even though he was on the run from the boys in blue.

Pugsey,

Unless it has changed they also do an x-ray and they are specifically looking for TB which is on the increase in the UK.

the blood tests they do are for any kind of communicable disease, I know they check for Hepatitis not sure about HIV / AIDS as this is an expensive test and they only draw off one vial of blood.

For residency you also need to get a letter from your local Muktar (spelling) go in person to Girne police station, go to to get a copy of your ins and outs. And finally Immigration to get your yearly stamp.



Not nearly as complicated as it seems. Oh and remember to bring loads of photocopies of your passport and quite a few passport photos. If you need help when you get here just e-mail me.

Chris

Thanks chris.

I had heard of the TB test but not the others.

I assume for my in laws proof of pension and savings would suffice for income test. do you have to do any of this in any particular order i.e. police check first and them medical, and do you need to make appointments or just go along?

I can say my experiance has not been as simple and straight forward,



After supplying everything requested and having an engineer husband who works in dubai with a very respectable ongoing income and more than enough money in the bank, The police refused to even process my application before the medical test stage as they state, I AM TOO YOUNG (at 34) and it is unusual that I chose here!! She even spoke with the immigration boss in Lefkosia on the phone and they say my husband doesnt spend enough time here to grant ME a temporary residency!!!



he does 28 on 28 off rotation, we have perfevtly clean criminal records, we have a tenancy on a house for a year while we look for something to buy and I have 2 young children in a local school...



Something tells me this country has things wrong if they are discouraging young successful families from residing here!!!

Try getting your husband to apply for Temp Res at the same time. Shouldn't have a problem then. Go with the system, you won't beat it!

When my relatives came over to buy a house, their solicitor asked for CRB.
