Where should I setup a bank account in Oroklini?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Oroklini what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Oroklini, should be aware that the official languages are Greek and Turkish, but English is widely spoken due to the country's history as a British colony. The cost of living in Oroklini is relatively low compared to other European countries, making it an attractive option for retirees. The healthcare system in Cyprus is of a high standard, with both public and private healthcare options available. Expats should ensure they have comprehensive health insurance, as only emergency treatment is free for non-residents. Oroklini has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters, which can be a significant change for those used to cooler climates. The village is located near Larnaca, providing easy access to the amenities of a larger city while still maintaining a peaceful, rural atmosphere. The Cypriot cuisine is a blend of Greek and Middle Eastern influences, with a focus on fresh, local ingredients. Expats should also be aware that Cyprus has a slower pace of life compared to many Western countries, which can take some adjustment. Cyprus uses the Euro, and while the cost of living is generally lower, imported goods can be more expensive. The country has a high standard of living, with a strong emphasis on family and social life. In terms of residency, non-EU citizens who wish to retire in Cyprus must apply for a Category F Immigration Permit, which requires proof of a steady income from abroad. EU citizens have the right to live in Cyprus, but must register their residency after three months. Finally, Cyprus is known for its low crime rate, making it a safe choice for retirees. However, as with any location, it's important to take standard precautions to protect your personal safety and belongings," said another expat in Oroklini, Cyprus.
