government measures asylum process and employment

Clampdown on Employing Irregular Syrian Migrants

In response to the influx of Syrian migrants, the Cypriot government has implemented strict measures including suspending automatic refugee status processing, increasing police surveillance, and cracking down on illegal employment. These actions aim to control migration flows, tighten employment restrictions, and streamline the asylum process, while also considering the reclassification of safe zones in Syria and advocating for the repatriation of certain individuals.
