What do I need to know about living in Nicosia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Nicosia, they said:

"Before retiring in Nicosia, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is generally higher than in other parts of the country. Additionally, expats should research the local healthcare system and ensure they have adequate health insurance coverage. It is also important to familiarize oneself with the local culture and customs, as well as the language, as English is not widely spoken in Nicosia. Finally, expats should research the local tax laws and regulations to ensure they are compliant with all applicable laws," remarked one expat who made the move to Nicosia.

"Think about why you are coming here, and if you want to do it and want to contribute to Cyprus - Welcome! There's lots of positives about the place for people who are seeking a better life than suburban England or America," explained one expat living in Nicosia, Cyprus.
