Moving to Cyprus
There are many reasons why people consider moving to Cyprus, from its rich cultural heritage, high quality of life and over 320 days of pure sunshine every year – it’s easy to see why this country has become one of the expat hotspots of the European Union.
While one does not need to apply for a visa to visit Cyprus, if you are considering a permanent move to the country there are a few legal documents you should avail yourself of, including an Alien Registration Certificate, Social Security number (if you plan to work in the country) and residence permit.
An Alien Registration Certificate should be applied for within eight days of arrival in the country. This can be applied for at the immigration department of the local police. There is a fee of £20 for this certificate.
If you plan to work or live within the country for a period of more than three months a residency permit is required, this can be applied for at the Civil Registration and Migration Department.
There are several expat communities in Cyprus, however the two largest can be found in Limassol and Nicosia. Limassol is home to the largest trade port in Cyprus, located on Akrotiri Bay, with many of the country’s exports including wines, citrus fruits, and grapes leaving from here. Thanks to its location and cultural heritage Limassol is a popular destination for tourists and the summer months sees its population rise from 154,000 to 230,000. It hosts several popular festivals each year, including the Wine Festival of Cyprus, the Limassol Carnival and the Beer Festival with is held each July.
Nicosia, the country’s capital, sits on the border between the north and south country divide. Indeed, it is only capital city in the world to be divided by a wall – splitting the southern Greek ruled side from the northern Turkish ruled side. Nicosia has a vibrant performing arts scene and is home to the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra; and the city’s Strovolos Municipal Theatre hosts a range of events including opera and ballets.
