INCOMING STAFF

The European University Cyprus receives an increasing number of Staff Mobility requests from other universities asking to carry out training or teaching visits here. Requests may come directly to a department or via the Erasmus Office. It is at the discretion of the department concerned whether or not to accept a staff training or teaching visitor. The hosting department is responsible for organizing a program based on the interests of the visitor and there is a considerable time commitment in planning the program and hosting the visit.

Actions for the interested visitors

Visit the EUC website and identify the faculty/department you wish to visit. Contact the relevant person within the faculty/department to discuss common grounds on teaching/research or training interest. Once the dates of the visit have been agreed, the Teaching Program should be prepared. On receipt of the confirmed Teaching Program, an invitation letter from the host faculty/department will be sent by email.

Eligibility

Visiting staff must be employed by a partner institution of European University Cyprus with which there is a specific agreement for Staff Mobility. Financial support should be provided by the home institution of the visitor. Visitors should ensure they have adequate medical insurance, while being in Cyprus. Please note all arrangements must be made at least three months prior to the visit.

COVID-19 Safety Protocol for travelers

Please find below important information for travelers:

  • All necessary protocols are found on the following links:

https://www.pio.gov.cy/coronavirus/pdf/18_1o.pdf (Greek)

  • The following categorization of countries is based on the risk/epidemiology, which changes weekly:

Category A (similar epidemiology to Cyprus): no test required prior to travelling as of 20/6. Sample testing will take place upon arrival (no isolation though) and the randomly selected travelers will be notified prior to their trip.

Category B (higher risk compared to Cyprus): test is required within 72 hours before traveling (OR if not feasible, upon their arrival in Cyprus with 24-hour isolation at predefined space until test comes out).

Category C (https://www.pio.gov.cy/coronavirus/press/5052020_6a.pdf): all other countries, from which travelling is allowed under specific circumstances.

A specific team has been assigned by the Health Ministry to monitor the global situation and renew the list with the countries in each category. This is a dynamic list and might change even on a daily basis, therefore anyone who plans to travel is encouraged to keep close track of relevant updates that might differ from the guidelines by the government.

Register into the Cyprus flight pass (link: https://cyprusflightpass.gov.cy/) before  travelling to Cyprus. Please present the completed pass at the airport. The flight pass provides passengers with necessary updated information related to their trip.
