Relocating to Cyprus
Famed as Aphrodite’s Isle, Cyprus is a small and traditional Mediterranean island which remains popular with expats. With stretches of beautiful beaches, winding mountains, forests and ancient architecture that nods to a rich and mystical past; Cyprus remains quite a draw.
If you are moving to Cyprus it still requires an organised and planned approach to make sure you move goes as smoothly as possible. Burke Bros. Moving Group have regular departures to Cyprus.
When planning your move, it may be worth considering the following:
Whilst infrastructure in Cyprus has developed during the past decade, those relocating there should anticipate the island’s administration to still be quite time consuming and should factor this in to their relocation plans, particularly when dealing with the government, banks and sometimes utility companies.
Consult a professional moving company
An experienced estimator should visit you in your home to assess the amount of household goods and personal possessions you intend to take with you. The price of the move should include the cost of all transportation and shipping costs. It’s important that you discuss the requirements of the destination you are moving to: in terms of there being any narrow streets, limited access or parking restrictions.
If you require more time between moving into the new home, you may wish to put your items into a storage facility. In which case, ask your mover to store your goods in a secure facility in the UK.
Greek remains the most widely spoken language across the island, but English is becoming more popular particularly with younger generations. You may also find that English is used often on signage across Cyprus, which makes traveling across the island practical for non-Greek visitors and residents.
The Cypriot education system consists of state primary and secondary schools where the language spoken in school is Greek. It is important for children who do not speak Greek, to attend Greek language lessons to be able to communicate with their peers. There is also the option of private international and English language schools on the island. Private schools in Cyprus, may well be available at a notably lower cost than the UK.
