C) Rights granted to third country citizens holders of a 5 year residence permit
The beneficiaries of Section A above are entitled to sublease
their real estate property.
In addition, family members of the third country citizens who have obtained a 5 year residence permit are entitled to join the third country citizen, owner of real estate property, and for this reason a residence permit is granted to the said members upon their application.
D) Application processing timeframe
After the application has been submitted, the applicant receives a certificate/receipt confirming the submission of the application. Such a certificate is currently valid for one year and serves as temporary permit until the issuance of the final permit by the Secretary General of the Decentralised Authority.
The time required to process the application depends on the specific locality where the application was submitted and the volume of pending applications. Authorities have been instructed to give priority to this type of applications and all efforts are made to process them within two (2) months.
