I know exactly what I'm saying.
I'll admit I didn't read the whole thread.

Dude, the way you post your crap Anatolian music sh** on this forum to spite your Greco cousins.
I also have the right to take an interest in my country.

Apparently all the white-collar jobs are reserved for EU citizen only. And that I can only work as delivery boy or clean houses. :x :x :x

I feel the love Cyprus. I feel it.


Do you have a proper visa and a work permit??? Or are you a pseudo student on a student visa wanting to work here illegally??

Unless you have the necessary documentation then the only jobs for you is farm work or home help.

So before your open your trap and start disrespecting my country make sure you have your own house in order. You know where the airport is if it is not to your liking.

Have a nice day.

Hi there, It was never my intention to disrespect your beloved country. But I'd like to apologize if you feel that that is what I am going for.
But to answer your question. Yes I have a proper visa. I am a full time student. Never missed a class and never worked.
I was hoping that I'd make my summer vacation productive and meaningful so I decided to look for internship. The company contacted me
and said I will be an unpaid intern if ever. I agreed as I am just after the experience but only to find out that I am not allowed as it is meant
for EU citizen only. I am frustrated that they denied me this opportunity just because I am not one of you. But I have no choice to but to accept
and respect it. But thank you for the hostility. I hope that I am just an unlucky person that I keep encountering a person like you and this is not
a Cypriot thing.

So sleep well my friend, you still rule this island. Hug and kisses.

You are here on a student visa and it has terms and conditions. When you accepted the visa you accepted the terms. Those terms say people from 3rd countries cannot work is certain jobs but can work in others. So you are pissed that having accepted the terms to be allowed to come here to study you are now angry because they won't let you break these terms. This my understanding. You do not have a 'proper' visa nor a work permit but a student visa for STUDY. Its simple. You cannot be expected to be allowed to drive a car without a full and valid driving licence just because you want to.

So you have no case, and with your attitude you will always encounter people like me to tell you where to get off.

Now if you want to do things properly by all means try, but coming here ranting about Cyprus being unfair to you is offensive in itself.

I always sleep well as if I'm going to lose any sleep over a pinnie moaning.

I went to Australia to get a free western education (it was free at the time to all permanent residents) because I had no parents/guardians to pay for an overseas tertiary education.

After studying I eventually got a string of jobs and within 6-7 years I was earning top dollar working for the most prestigious companies in the industry, so to Cap and B25 I say…

Lots of Cypriots went to other countries to take advantage of whatever they could to improve their lives, so let’s not act like it’s a one-sided affair!

Well I was made aware that I can work in field of job related to my program of study. So forgive me for believing that. I wouldn't even consider it "work".
It is more of a training, hence its called internship. Unpaid, so some of you can relax. Wouldn't be appropriate to have a training related to what I am studying?
I dont know, maybe I am wrong.
It was wrong of me to give any indication that Cyprus is being unfair. You were right, I came here in my own will so I have to follow your rules.
I shall request the admin to delete this thread as soon as possible as it only cause hatred than anything else. I should have kept it to my self.

Hi - this is meant to be constructive criticism but I don't have much time to lay it on gently.

You seem to have an attitude problem. You assume that because you are not paid that you deserve some extra rights or considerations. But if you are not right for front of house (either because of your manner, speech or looks) then the business has every right to shift you. It happens even with people who are paid.

Until you develop a sweet and welcoming attitude, I wouldn't trust you to not turn away my customers. So, round the back you go! :D

Hi there, I am sorry I didn't make it clear but the company didn't reject me. They are actually interested to have me as their intern as I met all their
qualifications they are looking for. I have been told by the college that I am not allowed to pursue this thing as per immigration rules.

I had an Indian friend who worked in a hotel in Cyprus for 1 year as part of his program in Tourism management.
