Mapping social orientation in Cyprus
The National Action Plan 2014-2020 for Asylum and Migration (2016) identifies the Priority for Education and Language Learning. However, formal integration processes for TCNs have not been yet institutionalised. There are no formal or mandatory orientation programmes for them upon their arrival in the country. Even though the legislation states that all migrants aged 15+ must attend courses for the purpose of accessing the long term migrant visa, such obligation selectively applies only for those migrants who will apply only for long-term residence under the EU Long-term residence Directive.
