According to Eurostat, in 2017, Cyprus issued a total of 18,971 residence permits - the second largest number in the EU (22.1 permits for 1,000 Cypriot citizens). Malta was in first place with 23 permits for 1000 Maltese citizens .Out of the total number 18,971 permits, citizens of India received 4,710, (24.8%), 2,883 Russians (15.2%) followed by Nepal 1,406 (7.4%).

Some 2,741 permits (14.4%) were granted for family reasons, 4,923 (26%) for educational purposes, 8,204 (43.2%) for employment and 3,103 (16.4%) for “other reasons”.

Meanwhile in 2017, about 3.1 million residence permits were issued in the European Union (EU) to non-EU citizens. The number increased almost by 4% (or 112,000) compared with 2016. Employment reasons accounted for almost one-third (32%) of all residence permits issued in the EU in 2017, family reasons for 26%, education reasons for 17%, and other reasons, including international protection, for 24%.

The increase in the total number of residence permits in 2017 in comparison with 2016 was mainly due to the increasing number of first permits issued for employment reasons (up by 15,000, or 18%), family reasons (up by 49,000, or 6%) and education reasons (up by 30,000, or 6%), whereas the number of permits issued for other reasons decreased by 123,000 (-14%).

One out of five first residence permits were issued in Poland (683,000, or 22% of total permits issued in the EU), followed by Germany (535,000, or 17%), the UK (517,000, or 16%), France (250 000, or 8%), Spain (231 000, or 7%), Italy (187,000, or 6%) and Sweden (130,000, or 4%).

Citizens of Ukraine (662,000 beneficiaries, almost 88% in Poland) continued to receive the highest number of permits in the EU, ahead of citizens of Syria (223,000, almost two-thirds in Germany), China including Hong Kong (193,000, almost half in the UK), India (163,000, 44% in the UK) and the United States (147,000, over half in the UK), Morocco (108,000, 41% in Spain) and Afghanistan (87,000, around 61% in Germany).
