The Cyprus guide

Latest articles

With a population of 1.19 million, Cyprus is the third most densely populated island in the Mediterranean. Particularly in the country's largest cities, such as Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos, there is an over-demand of accommodation due to the influx of expats and international students. As a result, rent prices have recently gone up. However, it is still possible to find reasonably priced accommodation outside the main cities, if you know where to look.

With a population of 200,452 people, the capital city of Nicosia is the most densely populated in Cyprus. Dubbed the worlds last divided capital, Nicosia is indeed split in two at the Green Line, with the Turkish-occupied area at the other side. Despite that or perhaps because of it, Nicosia is a cultural melting pot attracting visitors and expats from every corner of the world. Choosing to stay in Nicosia means you can enjoy archaeological sites and rich history while being part of vibrant everyday life at the city's many cafes, bars and restaurants. Finding accommodation, however, might be a bit challenging.

Are you thinking of investing in property in Cyprus? You are definitely not alone. The interest for real estate in Cyprus is very strong, particularly from expats. There are many reasons for that, namely the low cost of living combined with a high-quality lifestyle, the climate, the still competitive real estate prices as well as the majestic views to the islands beautiful nature. For expats thinking of buying property in Cyprus there is a further advantage, as acquiring real estate in Cypriot ground makes it infinitely easier to get a permanent residence. Before you invest though, you should also be aware of the potential pitfalls.

Cyprus is becoming an increasingly popular market for expats. People migrate to this Mediterranean island for its terrific climate, the affordable living costs and the blending of several different cultures (as the country is located between Europe, Asia and Africa). If you are planning to live and work in Cyprus, you should be aware of the state of the labour market in general and in your area as well as the requirements and formalities needed based on your nationality. Generally speaking, EU/EFTA nationals as well as UK citizens, will have a much easier time finding work in Cyprus than third-country nationals.

Dubbed the last divided capital city of Europe, Nicosia has a long and rich history as well as a vibrant present. Cyprus capital city is a melting pot of different cultures and architectural influences, where expats are as likely (if not more) to find work as are Cypriot citizens. In fact, Nicosia has seen the highest decrease in unemployment in recent years so choosing it as your base is probably the smartest thing to do.
