Moving to Cyprus
It is never easy to immigrate to a new country. You have to consider an avalanche of things, so as to ensure that you are making the right decision. Whenever you are considering a temporary or permanent move to Cyprus from the UK, you have to look for current information online, and to find updated information about emigrating to this nation is not an easy one. This is actually the reason for this page. It is meant to ensure that you have a smooth relocation to Cyprus by guiding you through the entire process of the move.
Immigration and the reception of citizenship in Cyprus
You will come across different and of course varying rules and regulations about immigrating to Cyprus and getting of citizenship depending on your current citizenship and the country you are migrating from. One of the major considerations is based on whether you are a citizen of any of the countries within the EU and EEA zone and Switzerland.
If you already hold a citizenship of any of the EU member states, hoving house to Cyprus will be much easier for you than when you are coming with the citizenship of any other place in the world.
Citizens of EU and EEA moving to Cyprus
The counties must be ether EU or EEA member states, and living in any of these will give you automatic freedom to move to Cyprus. This is because it is a full member of the EU. For those from Switzerland, they are also free to enter Cyprus. This same right is also applicable to Cyprus citizens. They are free to move into any of the other EU nations and live. When you come into Cyprus or move from Cyprus to other EU nations under this arrangement, you are free to engage in all economic activities, work, own and run companies.
However, if you intend to spend above 3 months in this country, then you have to get the registration certificate meant for nationals of the EU. The certificate is called the yellow slip and you have the obligation to submit the application for this once you stay in Cyrus for four months. If you are coming in with family members, they should also apply for this. This is also applicable to people moving to Cyprus from the United Kingdom.
Non EU citizens relocating to Cyprus
If you are not an EU citizen or you are not from the EEA area or Switzerland, then you have to face strict regulations when emigrating to Cyprus. For the non EU residents who may wish to reside in Cyprus permanently, there is an option named the scheme for naturalization of investors, which you can take advantage of. However, before the Cyprus citizenship is conferred on you under this arrangement, you have to meet some requirements as listed below:
- You must have an investment that is worth up to €5.0 million in Cyprus.
- Your salary should have generated at least €100,000 in taxes in Cyprus within the last three years.
- You must also own a permanent home in Cyprus, and the cost of the home must be up to €500,000.

Pros and cons of living in Cyprus
There are some pros and cons that come with moving to Cyprus from the UK, and Cyprus as a nation is not an exception. One thing you have to understand is that any view you develop about living in Cyprus is from your own perspectives and according to the expectations you have and your plans for coming here. You may not experience some of the pros and cons upon arrival. You may not even experience them in your fist year, but with time, they will begin to unravel, and you can draw up your list of pros and cons. However, people that are keen on moving to this place will not have the luxury for all these. This is why we have succeeded in mapping out some of the pros and cons of moving of Cyprus. As much as this is based on my personal perspective, many other expats in this country also made inputs.
Pros of living in Cyprus
Some of the benefits of living in Cyprus are given below
- Low rate of crime
This country has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe and you will always feel safe when you are here.
- The weather
They have a very stable weather with a summer period that seems not to go. Many people can always vacation here.
- The tax system
This country has a very low tax rate when you compare it with the other countries. Again, you have to pass through a high threshold before you can start paying income tax.
- Pace of life
Cyprus will definitely present you with the pace of life you desire because it has a flexible system that is versatile in the way of life it offers. If you need the slow paced life, then you simply need to move with the flow because there are only a few that are very busy in Cyprus. For those in need of the fast paced life, with activities like professional and outdoor events, partying and others, nothing will hinder them from this.
- English is widely spoken
We cannot say that Cyprus is an English speaking country, but we can vouch to the fact that almost everyone speaks English here. This is evenly spread in all areas of the country. So you will get by with English wherever you go in Cyprus. If you speak the Russian language, you will also encounter a lot of people that speak the same language when you come here.
- The beaches
There should be another section to talk about the beaches in Cyprus, and the beaches on their own almost deserve a separate section or area in Cyprus. They are consistently named the best in Europe for a long time now. When you add this to the fact that Cyprus experiences a prolonged summer season, you will see where we are going to. Excellent leisure and fun!
- Cheap rentals
The renting of properties here is not something to worry about. This is because of the fact that it is very cost effective, and will help in reducing your costs of living.
- Expat communities here
There is a presence of numerous English expats in Cyprus. Because of this, expat communities are scattered in different parts of the country, and they will help you to settle down when you come in. they are mostly from Russia, the UK and other Asian and European nations.
- Cyprus is an EU member state
People have their reservations about the European Union. But one thing no human being can dispute is the fact that the EU has made trade, travel and work very easy between member states. When you come here as a citizen of any of the EU member states, you will enjoy the same rights with Cypriots. For those who are not from the union, they can gain permanent citizenship, which will give them access to all the member states of the EU and place them on the same level of benefits with the Cyprus citizens.
This is called the bacon of cheeses. This is one of the ways of life of the people of Cyprus, and it is made up of a very salty goat cheese. It originated from Cyprus. Some of the people here will tell you that you have not lived if you have not tasted and enjoyed a grilled halloumi as your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
- Cheap container shipping to Cyprus from UK
There are plenty or Britons moving to Cyprus from the UK and looking for cheap container shipping to the UK from Cyprus each month. For that reason the number of international removal companies is quite hight too. As the competition is high the container shipping prices to Cyprus and back to the UK are relatively cheap and affordable.
- Your UK pensions can be paid in Cyprus
This is one of the best here. Though many people will like to get information about their native countries, the information we have in this regard is only that of the UK. It is simple for you to receive most of your UK pensions in Cyprus. You have to do some further readings to see the opportunities available and how it works. People with information about other countries pensions can also place them here.
Cons of living in Cyprus
Just as we have mentioned the palatable sides of this country, there are also some downsides.
- The salaries are low here
There is a close relationship between the salaries here and the low cost of living. But the fact remains that salaries for most jobs here are slow. However, this will not be a problem because you can and will be fine with what you are receiving. This is because the cost of living is very low and you don't have to pay income tax for the first €19.500 you earn each year.
- Lack of enough options for shopping
The market here is on the increase and lots of opportunities crop up every day. But you will notice a huge difference between the shopping options available in Cyprus and those in other places. But you can always augment with the option of buying online if this becomes a problem for you.
- Changes in activities in summer and winter
The economy of Cyprus is driven majorly by tourism. Now, because of the fat that tourism is only a thing that happens during the summer time, the off seasons will see the tourism destinations going practically moribund. Though you may have the winter season, but opportunities vary in the two seasons. However, there is a gradual increase or growth in off season tourism here. There are also plans underway to develop an international quality casino and golf courses so as to enhance off season tourism too.
- Limited direct flights to some European nations
Due to the fact that off season tourism is not huge here; there are fewer direct flights from this country to other European nations aside the summer tourism period, except from and to the UK and Greece. This is one of the major challenges witnessed here during winter.
- Air freight prices
Shipping boxes to Cyprus costs by air may be rather expensive as there are not many airlines servicing this area. However if you are not in a hurry to receive your goods you may hire our fast man and van delivery to Cyprus from the UK company. We offer removals to Melini, Pissouri, Kapedes, Akrotiri, Chloraka and 20ft container shipping to Cyprus costs including sending boxes to Kokkina, Ayia, Varvara, Sotira and furniture transport to Famagusta, Tseri, Moutoullas,etc..
- Low welfare benefits
This may not be any of your business for moving to Cyprus, but it is something that is worth mentioning so that you will also consider it in making a decision. There are very low social benefits here, and you can only qualify after some years.
House prices in Cyprus
When you move to Cyprus, you will have lots of living arrangements to choose from either for buying or renting. You can easily find a new home here because the available options are many. But you have to consider a lot of requirements before you choose.
- How to find a good home in Cyprus
When you are moving to Cyprus and are looking for a new home you have to start by defining the exact things you require in the new home. This is follow by taking a serious look at your budget for the home project, either for renting or buying. It is after these considerations that you can now take decisions on where to start looking in Cyprus. You also have to bear in mind that each of these steps is linked to the others. So, you may have to take some steps backwards at some point to ensure that you are getting something that matches your budget and requirements and the area you have chosen to live in the city.
- Home requirements
This should be about the first step to take in this struggle to find a good home. Before you come up with the exact requirements, you have to take a good look at the checklist given below. When you work with it, it will be easier for you.
- What number of rooms do you need in the home?
- How big should the apartment or house be?
- Would you want a garden in your compound?
- Must the house have a sea or Mountain View?
- Should the house be unfurnished or furnished?
- These things have to be set out before you go for the house hunt, and once you have them figured, you are good to go.
- If you are shipping boxes to Cyprus with personal effects or are looking to ship a 20ft container full of furniture you need get a property of the right size
- moving to Bulgaria from Cyprus
- The budget
This is another crucial aspect of finding a new home in Cyprus. Though we can say that rent here is very cheap when you place it side by side with what is obtainable in other EU nations, but you will not get homes free of charge. So, you still have to pay some money. Because of this, you should also consider the amount you are willing to set out for water, electricity and other home costs as the total rent.
The expenses will be different for those who are in the market to buy. But having the budget beforehand will help in both divides. It will actually make it easier for those buying a house inCyprus because it will reduce the amount of options available in line with the amount the buyer is ready to spend. With this, your agent will be ready to help you find a house you will love in Cyprus
We also have a property search engine with which you can search, so as to ascertain the type of house that different budgets will be able to get you. Always ensure that water and electricity expenses are dully considered. When you have come up with a rough budget, you can now move to the next step. We offer removals to Kalo, Chorio, Inia, Maroni, man and van Leonarisso, Meniko, Idalium, Pyrgos, one way van hire Mia, Milia, Xylofagou and Vrysoules.
- Settling on a particular location
When you consider the cities in Cyprus, you will also discover some pros and cons that are associated with each. What you have to do is to conduct a research on all the cities that are available to you. However, the sure-fire best way to choose the best city is to visit Cyprus and make a survey of the cities before you select one. With this, you will have a feel of the area in such a way that you won't have to rely on what people write about them. Of course, the experience you will get first hand when you visit cannot be matched by anything written by anyone about the cities.

Buying or renting a house in Cyprus
Now, we cannot tell you that it is better to buy or rent a house when you are moving to Cyprus. There are many determinants to the one that will be better for you amongst the two. For each option, there are some benefits to look at.
- Benefits of buying a house
These include the fact that the house becomes yours as long as you wish. It is stated that people who are not from the EEA, EU and Switzerland will need a permanent residence of €500,000 before they could be given Cypriot citizenship.
The house will also be counted in the €5.0 million investment you must have made in the country before you are offered the citizenship of the country. You have made a major investment with this, and this means that the increase in the value of properties in the country will also benefit you. If you buy a house you can do anything you want.

Considerations before moving into your home in Cyprus
There are many things to be considered before you start planning container shipping costs to Cyprus and move into your new home. However, a check will tell you that these considerations are the same in every country you want to move into. You have to start by looking at the electricity connection. Make sure you connect to the power grid, check for water connection, track collection and internet connection.
Costs of living in Cyprus
The cost of living here is lower than what obtains in many other European nations. Here, you will enjoy prices that are 20 to 50% lower than what you will get in the UK. If you are making a budget, majority of the objects in your budget like renting and buying of homes are much lower in Cyprus than in the UK and other EU countries. On the part of local vegetables and fruits, you will also enjoy them at very cheap rates.
However, there are few items that their costs are higher here than in the UK. For instance, milk, fitness club memberships and white bread costs more in Cyprus than in the UK and other countries. Apart from these, the cost of internet connectivity is obviously the only thing that its cost is significantly higher than what you get in the UK and other EU member countries.
Do you want to move to Cyprus with your kids? There is no problem with this If you have kids that you cannot abandon while moving to Cyprus, nothing is stopping you from bringing them along. This place is very child friendly and you will experience this when you step out with your kids for meals in the malls and in other centres. You will also discover that kindergarten and primary schools are scattered all over the country in multiple languages so much so that you will also find one in your language. Here you can learn more about removals to Germany from Cyprus.
As much as it will take you some time to find schools that teach in Spanish, Swedish, Italian, Hungarian and other languages, schools that teach in the English language are scattered all over the country. The same thing goes with Russian speaking schools, and these are full of native speaking teachers that understand these languages so well. The official language here is Greek, so you will experience most of the options making the learning of Greek compulsory. Schools or pre-school as it is mostly called starts at the age of 5 in Cyprus. There are lots of private schools to this effect and they are mostly in American, Russian and English curricula. Some of the locals also opt for the private schools mostly because the private schools have a reputation of offering better quality than the public schools.
Shipping a car to Cyprus
A car is very necessary here and this is down to two main reasons. The public transportation system in this country is on a mediocre level. There are very hot summers here, so you will not find it comfortable walking through the streets during the summer months. You can confirm with the weather information. Because of this, we will advise you to either purchase a car, rent one upon arriving or the best solution is shipping a car to Cyprus from the UK with you furniture and boxes. You will also enjoy the fact that cars are cheap here, and there are many of them for sale and hire. You also do not need to get a local license before you can drive. But, you can only drive with international license here, unless you have a license from one of the EU member states to avoid confusions. One more thing you have to note about Cyprus is that the cars are driven in the left side of the road here. So, you may need to read the guide for driving in Cyprus as to be prepared for the local traffic.
Renting a car in Cyprus
When you are here, you can go on car renting for the first few weeks. This is if you are not coming with your own car. If you have not mapped out a particular car to buy, you will be better off with rentals for the first few weeks, pending when you pick out the best car for you to buy.
Buying a car here
There are several cars for sale in the country and we can categorize the car market of Cyprus as a buyers' market. This is because any type of car you want is readily available for you here, and they are very cheap too.
Car insurance and additional costs
Now, depending on the coverage you will be going for, car insurance on a general level is cheap here. However, there are some other related costs that you will have to pay, and they include:

Getting of a phone number and how to connect to the internet is another serious consideration before you move to Cyprus. Getting a phone number. Whether you are looking for a land line or a mobile one, there are no serious challenges about that here. But if you are not a citizen and does not have a property, it might be difficult for you to get a subscription. Because of this, you just have to go for a prepaid number that is available almost at every kiosk across the cities.
Getting an internet connection
When you want to get an internet connection here, you have to start on time because it may take your chosen supplier some days to get you connected to the web.
The internet access here is costly when you compare it with whichever place you are coming from, and there are very few options available. So, you have to base your choice on quality and cost. However, you cannot get a cheap high bandwidth connection here. For normal internet connections, you can subscribe with about €15 a month or more. You can also consider getting the mobile internet connection too. This is because there are lots of 4G mobile networks coming from the providers. But when you choose not to get an internet connection for your private use at home, you may choose to use WIFI connections at cafes, restaurants and bars. While you enjoy this social incentive, you also have to be ready to pay for the coffee or drink that will accompany the stay in the bars and restaurants.
Taxes in Cyprus

€19,501 – €28,000 20 %
€28,001 – €36,300 25 %
€36,301 – 60,000 30%
60,000 + 35%
There is a 6-7% income tax paid by every employee. The social insurance tax is also added by the company.
There are also some other taxes and benefits
There are some other minor taxes like the taxes on dividends, company taxes, and tax benefits for new comers. Most of these are relevant for new comes, so you have to look at them and consider them before coming.
Greek is the official language of the Cyprus people. But people who can't speak Greek have no problems here because they can pretty well get along speaking the English language and some amount of Russian instead of Greek.
Tourism is mostly patronized by people from the UK and Russia. This forms a huge part of their foreign exchange and economy. Most of the places here will be comfortable with English and Russian people and languages.
