Family Residence Permit in Northern Cyprus | immigration lawyerNon-married couples can obtain Family Residence Permit in TRNC

The TRNC Council of Ministers made a long-awaited amendment to the category of foreign nationals who can obtain family residence permits. Further to this amendment, unmarried couples will be able to obtain a family residence permit.
Such changes in immigration laws and regulations often reduce the difficulties in obtaining residency for the couples who are not married. However, a certain procedure has to be followed.
 Non-married couples and people who are living together in the same property must provide a document that proves their cohabitation, in order to be eligible for a residence permit. A special form must be certified by a certifying officer and submitted with the residency application.

➤ The child is a TRNC citizen;
➤ The child is a holder of Student Residence Permit.
