Yes, I have just renewed my housemaid's visa, you are better off doing it through an agent. They charge around Euro200-350 depending on the complexity of the case.

Before applying for the Visa you need to extend the bank guarantee for at least one year after the expiration of the new Visa (maximum 4 years in Cyprus). Current Dr's certificate proving the need for a house-maid/carer, all Social Insurance contributions need to be up to date, as is the carer's health insurance, and you also need to prove you have paid all the salary owed (or get the carer to write an affidavit that they have received all monies due and have no complaints against the employer).

The agent will make sure you have all the necessary paperwork, the Visa itself costs around Euro 140.

Hope this helps, P.

Have you tried the Citizens' Service office? They handle most things.

Equally, if the government pays for your mother-in-law's carer, then they should be able to help.
