Hide details for Legislation and PolicyLegislation and Policy

The responsibilities of the Immigration Sector derive from a number of legal instruments as well as policies set out by the Council of Ministers, the Ministerial Committee for the Employment of Third Country Nationals and the Interior Minister.

The main laws governing the work of the Immigration Sector, as these are amended or replaced, are:
  • The Law on the Right of Union citizens and their family members to move and reside freely within the territory of the Republic,
  • The Aliens and Immigration Law (Cap. 105),
  • The Law on the Prevention and Combatting of Trafficking and Exploitation of Human Beings and Protection of Victims,
  • The Aliens and Immigration Regulations.

The above laws are harmonised with the European law. This means that the European Directives relating to the areas of free movement of EU citizens, immigration and trafficking in human beings have been transported to Cyprus law and they form a part of it.
