Cyprus Signs Agreement Helping Egyptian Workers Find Jobs on Island

NICOSIA – Following Greece’s lead, which will issue visas to 5,000 Egyptians to work in agricultural jobs, Cyprus has signed an agreement to assist Egyptians in finding employment on the Greek-Cypriot side of the island.

Cypriot Foreign Affairs Minister Constantinos Kombos and his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry signed the deal during the Cypriot minister’s visit to Egypt, concluding a four-month review of the proposal.

The agreement will reportedly facilitate the travel of Egyptian workers to Cyprus and their employment in various industries, based on the local market needs, while there are nearly 30,000 refugees and migrants present.

A joint committee, led by the Cypriot Ministry of Labor and Social Insurance, will oversee the agreement and recommend changes if necessary, with the deal applying regulations for social security, benefit transfers, and the confidentiality of shared information.
