Registration of Northern Cyprus residence permit
Northern Cyprus is a visa-free country where you can enter without special permits for up to 90 days. But currently, if you are not a property owner in TRNC, the passport-visa service gives a tourist visa for 30 days.
If you want to stay on the island for a longer period of time, you will need to obtain a residence permit (RNL).
In North Cyprus, a residence permit is usually granted for one year to anyone over the age of 18. Children under the specified age are attached to the parents’ residence permit and thus are absolutely legally in the territory of the TRNC.
There are several grounds for obtaining a residence permit in the legislation, but the most reliable basis for people living in Cyprus permanently or for long periods is a residence permit on the basis of ownership of real estate located in the territory of Northern Cyprus.
The main document when obtaining a real estate residence permit will of course be the purchase contract for your property. I emphasize that paid for the apartment at the time of registration of residence permit must be at least one third of the full price specified in the contract, ie. 33,3%. And another condition is that stamp duty must be paid when the purchase agreement is registered with the tax office.
In addition to the purchase agreement you will need a certificate confirming your residency in North Cyprus in your own apartment or in rented accommodation (if your property is still under construction) and a criminal record certificate issued in the country where you are a resident.
The necessary documents for obtaining a residence permit will also be documents of your income, which must not be lower than the minimum wage established in North Cyprus or documents of availability of funds in a bank account in the amount sufficient for living for a year (minimum wage x 12 months).
