Announcement concerning the extension of the temporary protection status to Ukrainian citizens in Cyprus
The Ministry of Interior informs all interested parties that on the basis of the relevant Decision of the Council of Ministers, the right to temporary protection is automatically extended for one year, to those Ukrainian nationals who have already received such status in Cyprus, i.e., until March 4, 2024.
Therefore, for those who are already beneficiaries of temporary protection, it is not necessary to submit a new application before the Asylum Service or to apply for the issuance of a new biometric residence permit before the Civil Registry and Migration Department.
