The cost of living in Cyprus
The cost of living in Cyprus is not high if compared with some other European countries. Fact is that most commodities are about 20-50% cheaper than in Britain. The cost of living in Cyprus is about 25% lower than the European average and can be considered cheap by western standards.

The job market in Cyprus
After Cyprus joined the EU in 2004, many multinationals decided to open up officers on the island. With a low tax rate, these companies benefit from a pleasant business climate that Cyprus provides. There are many job opportunities for expats moving to Cyprus in the financial sector, IT and technology. Some foreigners living in Cyprus work in tourism. The average salary in Cyprus is €2000 per month, which is a bit lower than the European average.
School and education in Cyprus
Expats living in Cyprus can choose between public and private education. In Southern Cyprus, both variants are options but keep in mind that when you choose for public education, your children should learn the local language. Full-time education is compulsory for all children aged between 6 and 18.
Healthcare in Cyprus
The healthcare system of Cyprus is at the same level as most countries in the EU. You can choose between private and public healthcare. Emergency services are free not only Cypriot citizens but for foreign nationals as well. Some other things you should know about healthcare in Cyprus are:
- Most medical staff received their education abroad and as a result, most doctors and even nurses speak English.
- All the major cities have a state-run hospital and a number of clinics.
- There is no vaccination needed when you move to Cyprus.
Driving in Cyprus. Should I get a Cypriot driving licence?
When you want to enjoy a little road trip around Cyprus, you need to have your documents in order. Here’s what you need:
- Driving licence in English. When your licence is in another language, you will have to get an International Driving Permit (IDP) in your native country.
- Identification, either an ID card, when you are from within the EU or a passport.
- Car insurance and registration documents.
Driving etiquette is something that is rarely seen in Cyprus. Drives ignore red lights, cut off other drivers and park wherever they please. When you want to avoid this, it is better to drive in rural than in urban areas.
What else to expect when living in Cyprus
- There are two parts of Cyprus known as North and South Cyprus. The Northern region is the Turkish part that officially is only recognised by Turkey. The Southern part is the Greek-speaking part of Cyprus and is formally recognised as Cyprus.
- Living in Cyprus is safe, and you can enjoy a low crime rate.
- Even though most people speak English, when you want to move to Cyprus for living it is worth learning the local language.
- Are you a pensioner from the UK? British pensions are also paid in Cyprus so you can enjoy the lower cost of living and the pleasant climate at the same time.
