I have just been through the process and it is relatively straight forward. I obtained the forms from the SI office in Limassol, on Roosevelt Franklin Street between the Alpha Bank and Limassol Water Board. I found them to be very helpful. I had to fill certain criteria regarding SI payments and I am sure everyone will be different so the best thing to do is to go and ask. The forms are in Greek and my neighbours helped me to fill them out. I applied two months ago and as yet nothing so I will just wait and see and go to the SI office again next month with my new sick note and find out what is happening then.
