Hi, my name is Terry. I am a Canadian living in Canada with my fiancee, Yiota, who is Cypriot. We are planning on relocating to Cyprus in the next few months. I am an Engineering Technologist with 15 years experience in the manufacturing industry and Yiota has just completed her Phd. in physical chemistry.

I am excited to experience four seasons as in Canada we only have two, (winter and almost winter). I am an avid scuba diver, and hope to own a sail boat to truely injoin what Cyprus has to offer.

My only concern is finding suitable employment. Any ideas? Are there popular classifieds I should be checking? What about temp agencies that find you a job?

Hi All,
My name is Ian and I have been thinking of moving to Cyprus for a couple of years now. I'm 64, retired, divorced, with no real ties to keep me in the UK any more. My main concerns centre round the current economic climate in Cyprus. We hear in England of the dire state of the Cypriot economy and the exposure of Cypriot banks to high levels of Greek debt which is a bit worrying to say the least. A colleague has also recently told me that the Cypriot government is likely to embark on a huge exercise to bring rateable values up to date, as most houses still carry rateable values set in 1980. Again, for someone on a fixed income, this is worrying news. What is the rumour mill on the ground in Cyprus saying about the current situation?

Hi my name is John, we are looking to move to Cyprus in the next few months. I am retired and cannot wait to get out of the UK. The main reason is because of my wife`s health, hopefully the warmer climate will be quite beneficial to her.

Hi all.

Moved here a year ago and settling down nicely.

I am getting a bit bored so I am looking for something to keep me occupied for a few hours a week. I used to work at the college in Bournemouth mainly as a Teaching Assistant and have taught basic IT to both teenagers and elderly people.



HI John & Ian

Hi John & Ian

I wouldn't worry too much about the economic situation for many reasons:

It is a good time to bring your money over and receive a UK pension as the exchange rate is favourable. Property is very cheap at the moment, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Gas: The recent gas finds, bodes well in the longer term for Cyprus as it is tied up with Israel and its contacts. Also Russia has an interest in Cyprus as there are many Russians investing in the country and many are moving here. The gas when online will make Cyprus an energy hub for Europe:

We have a lovely climate and a relaxed way of life, the medical side is not brilliant but not too bad as if you are retired you are entitled to free health care and medication at the General hospital, where you can see a GP and collect your medication at the pharmacy. Private health care is supposed to be excellent if you can afford it.

Find a good Cyprus Lawyer and ask lots of questions, I did!

Make the move you won't regret it.

If you are not sure where in Cyprus to live have a look at Kato Paphos.

I hope this helps
