I am in the last stage of osteoarthritis and I am in a constant pain if I stand up for more than 5 min
I came with my daughter recently to live here, they said I can't get residency on her unless she is working
She is still looking for a job but it is hard as she don't speak Greek

I think I belong to the category
Cypriot citizenship due to extraordinary circumstances
Where can I fill this form? LOL

Maybe I try and call district court in larnaca and see what they'll say about my issue

Please everyone pray for me

It puzzles me that your children are all Cypriot! How did they become Cypriot? Was your husband a Cypriot?
If yes you should be able to get citizenship in a minute.
If your children became Cypriots via marriage, and are living in Cyprus then you can follow Soto's an GR's advice.

Also I am sorry to say but every state in the world offers it's citizenship expecting to gain from the individual.
I guess this is how Paphitis made it for his children, not because they were obliged by law but because some high ranking officer put a red note on his application that the state has nothing to lose but rather gain from is children.
Your case is exactly the opposite. You will need medical care, welfare benefits, and a pension. It might be disappointing to you but that's how things are.

My husband God rest his soul was Lebanese
My daughter speaks English and Lebanese
She got the citizenship because she were born after the Independence Day of Cyprus
Through my mother (her grandmother)( her ancestors)

This happens to me all the time at the airport in larnaca as the officials there keep asking me ( how come your mother and your daughter are Cypriot and you are not?) I keep repeating the same story all over gain to them and tell them check your law :(

I can understand why they are confused as I am confused myself too :(

Also, you may want to write a letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ioannis Kasoulidis to request Cypriot citizenship due to extraordinary circumstances by explaining your situation in a short, sweet, and to-the-point way.

My children were able to get the citizenship no questions asked because they inherit it from me under Cypriot Law. What I was frustrated about was the process which requires patient heads no doubt.

It was difficult for me to get it because some years ago you can only inherit it from the Father, but the law has changed and now you can inherit it from your mother or even Grand Parent.

In any case, after being given the run around from people who were not giving me the right advice, and because I believed the Laws were total stupidity, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I was very fortunate to have some very strong connections through family and when I say very strong connections, I really mean strong connections within Government Ministries. I also had family who worked at the Department of Immigration. So my family was easily able to get my folder on top of someones Desk both in the Department and to a Minister and I was also able to get political interference in my favour.

After filling out the forms, submitting the paperwork, my relative had my Citizenship Papers in their hand, my ID Card (from photos I supplied), and my Passport and was going to take them home with her. It took less than 48 hours for the documents to be processed and made. Most people end up waiting more than 6 months.

Anyway, I made a point of meeting the stupid Cypriot Ambassador (such a fucker he was) and I waved my passport in front of his ugly face and told him he was incompetent.

Anyway, there are a few Cypriot Citizenship Laws which are completely unjust, unfair and illogical.

For instance, the law that makes it difficult and precludes many in the Diaspora from claiming citizenship because they have no descendant in their immediate family that was a citizen because they may have left Cyprus from pre 1960.

Another rather amazing anomaly is the fact that their children are still obligated to serve the CNG and quite possibly even have to fight in a war, and yet they will still not be allowed Cypriot Citizenship.

So in effect, their Cypriot Heritage is recognised as far as Military Service is concerned but not for Citizenship.

The OP case is actually quite common. But she is entitled to a Pink Slip if she has family in Cyprus which means she will be able to stay in Cyprus permanently.

One thing I am suspicious about is the fact that the Cyprus Government is making it difficult for the Diaspora to claim citizenship because they don't want people to come back and take jobs, or be a burden on Social Benefits.

It is far easier to gain Cypriot Citizenship if you are a TC than if you're from the Diaspora.

So if it has come to that, then you got to ask serious questions.

My daughter was born abroad not in Cyprus
My case is:

I was born when Cyprus was a British colony and not an independent country
From female side
So therefore according to the law I am not eligible to acquire the citizenship as back then when I was born 1959 Cyprus was not independent country + I come from Cypriot mother not a Cypriot father
