Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Cyprus is a beautiful sunny Mediterranean island which welcomes the western expatriate both in the Turkish north and in the Greek Cypriot south. Cyprus is a sovereign member of the European Union, and English is widely spoken in all areas. Violent crime is rare but petty theft has proven to be a challenge for some expats. The infrastructure is generally good as well as the quantity and quality of western retail products and services (particularly in the Cypriot south). Cypriots are well known for their exquisite wines and Halloumi cheese. Read more…

Cost of Living

Cost of living

The cost of living in Cyprus is fairly similar to central European countries. According to Xpatulator,com, the cost of living on this Mediterranean island is lower than the international average. A number of products and services can be purchased at quite a reasonable rate such as accommodations, utilities, groceries, Internet and alcohol. On the other hand, restaurants, hotels and transport tend to be on the higher end. Of course, the key for the international expat in Cyprus is to negotiate a fair remuneration package with their employer to ensure a nice quality of life while living there. Read more…

Visa Restrictions

Visa Restrictions

If you are a European Union National you have the entitlement  to work in any European Union country without needing to obtain a work permit. The only exception to this is if you are planning to work in Croatia where some restrictions can apply.  However you should still investigate the consequences of working and the effect this will have on your benefits (health insurance, maternity/paternity, pensions, occupational accidents and diseases, death grants, unemployment, early retirement, family benefits), and the implications of where and how much tax you pay. The European Union offers this Tax advise at its Your Europe website. Once you have been in an EU country for more than 3 months you will be required to register your residence and obtain a residency permit.

If you are not a European Union National then you will require a work permit. The requirements for this often differ depending on your Nationality. For the latest up to date information for entry please visit Cypprus-Visa-eu for EU citizens or Cypprus-Visa-non-eu website for non EU citizens..
