The temporary residence permit gives you the opportunity to reside on the island not only for 3 months per half a year, but to stay all year round. The permission for non-EU citizens is called a pink slip by folks and for EU citizens a yellow slip, both of which are issued for a period of one to four years.

There are three types of temporary residence permit: student, guest, and working visa.

In order to obtain a temporary residence permit, the following requirements must be met:
