Cyprus and Egypt sign agreement to employ Egyptian workers

New deal aims to regulate and facilitate Egyptian employment in Cyprus


Cyprus and Egypt have signed a new agreement to help Egyptian workers find jobs in Cyprus. Cypriot Foreign Affairs Minister Constantinos Kombos and his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry signed the deal during Kombos' visit to Egypt on June 4-5.

The agreement aims to make it easier for Egyptian workers to come to Cyprus and work in different industries, based on what the market needs. This will be done in a structured and controlled way to ensure everything runs smoothly.

The Cypriot Foreign Ministry noted that this deal was completed in just four months, showing both countries are eager to work together for their economic benefit.

A Joint Committee, led by the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance, will monitor how the agreement is working and suggest changes if needed. The first year will be a trial period to see how well the system works.

The agreement also includes rules about social security, the transfer of benefits, and keeping shared information private.
