Third country nationals employed in companies of foreign interests as Directors or Key Personnel executives are able to exercise their right to family reunification. In such a case, third country nationals who are family members (spouse and minor children) can enter and reside in Cyprus after the sponsor has followed the procedure for family reunification.

For the spouse and dependent children who temporarily do not meet the conditions for family reunification (e.g. due to the period of validity of passports or the duration of the marriage), temporary residence permits for Dependent Visitors may be issued.
