Financial assistance for Ukrainians in Cyprus: how to get 340 euros
Refugees from Ukraine who temporarily reside in Cyprus are entitled to financial assistance. Find out more about who can apply for the funds and what is required
Ukrainians living in Cyprus can receive financial assistance from the state. Let's find out who can receive 340 euros and what they need to do.
Who is eligible for assistance?
Ukrainians who belong to one of two categories will receive a one-time payment:
1. Ukrainians who came to Cyprus within three months before the start of the full-scale war for tourist purposes.
2. Ukrainians who arrived in the country after February 24, 2024.
In order to confirm the date of their arrival, citizens must provide a passport with a stamp of arrival at the airport or port or a copy of a temporary residence permit (if available).
The documents are the same for Ukrainians belonging to both categories.
What if I do not belong to either category?
Such Ukrainians can still receive the payment. You need to submit an application and wait for a notification about the need to visit the Department of Population and Immigration, where residence permits are issued.

What is the amount of the payment?
The state provides a one-time payment of 340 euros. This amount will be paid in two installments 15 days apart. By submitting an application to the Social Security Service (SWS), the applicant can receive the first payment on the same day. After 15 days, you need to apply to the SWS again with a document confirming receipt of the first installment - the institution will pay the second half of the financial assistance.
