According to the civil registry and migration department (http://www.moi.gov.cy/moi/crmd/crmd.nsf/page07_en/page07_en) procedures and lows, all foreigners (employees, visitors, and students) who intend to apply for a short or long term stay in Cyprus are obliged to have Health insurance. This insurance is obligatory for every foreign national who is not a citizen of a European Union country, and for anyone who wishes to stay in Cyprus for a duration longer than that allowed by their tourist visa. It is, for example, obligatory for any citizen who has applied for a pink slip, permanent residency status, or a work visa.
The contract of this insurance can quickly proceed, the only thing you need is a copy of your passport and a utility bill that clearly states your address of residence in Cyprus.
This kind of insurance is also for Cyprus based employers who intend to hire non-EU citizens, for non-EU International students and visitors, for non-EU citizens intending to work or stay in Cyprus as Housemaids (Domestic Helpers), Visitors, Farmers or any Agricultural workers or any other occupation as well as all University and College students in Cyprus.
