What do I need to know before moving to Kato Paphos?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Kato Paphos, they said...

"Before moving to Kato Paphos, expats should know that the official languages are Greek and Turkish, but English is widely spoken due to the high number of British expats and tourists. The cost of living in Kato Paphos is generally lower than in many European countries, but it's still advisable to have a stable income or savings. The local currency is the Euro. Expats should be aware that Cyprus has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Kato Paphos is a popular tourist destination, so it can get crowded during the peak tourist season. The healthcare system in Cyprus is of a high standard, with both public and private healthcare available. Expats from EU countries can access public healthcare services for free or at a reduced cost with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Cyprus has a relatively low crime rate, but like any other place, it's important to take basic safety precautions. Expats should also be aware of the local customs and traditions to avoid any cultural misunderstandings. Cypriots are known for their hospitality and friendliness, so it's easy to integrate into the local community. The property market in Kato Paphos offers a wide range of options, from luxury villas to more affordable apartments. It's advisable to rent a property first before deciding to buy. Expats should also know that driving is on the left side of the road, the same as in the UK. Public transportation is available, but having a car can be more convenient for getting around. Finally, expats should be aware that Cyprus has a slower pace of life compared to many other countries. This laid-back lifestyle can be a big change for those used to a fast-paced city life," wrote a member who made the move to Kato Paphos, Cyprus.
