Leaving Cyprus: Moving back to the UK

Nov 04. 2015

You may be a British Expat currently living in Cyprus, and for whatever or many reasons you have decided it is time to move back to the UK.

If you chose a professional international removals company to move you from the UK to Cyprus, the likelihood is they will also be able to arrange a shipment back for you. Remember to try and leave a few months prior to organise your move and to obtain several quotes to find the best mover for you. Once you have found your international mover, make sure they are members of FIDI the international trade organisation for removals and storage companies, meaning your pre-payment will be protected by a financial bond.

Anyone who has stayed in Cyprus for more than 90 days will need to obtain a residence permit and some longer-term residents from EU countries, such as the UK, may have been granted a permanent resident permit. In these cases, before you leave Cyprus, you must notify the Civil Registration and Migration department or the Aliens and Immigration Unit of the police to make them away of your plans to leave the country permanently.

Make sure you let everyone you need to that you are leaving giving them your new change of address, including any friends or family in Cyprus, utilities and service providers, your bank in Cyprus. For a small fee the Postal service in Cyprus will also redirect any mail to your address in the UK for the first three months.

For help moving to the UK from Cyprus call Burke Bros on 01902 714555 or email sales@burkebros.co.uk.
