Cyprus’s Healthcare System

The public healthcare system in Cyprus is called the General Healthcare System (GHS). It is available to all residents, including foreigners who are employed or self-employed in the country. Public hospitals in Pissouri are generally well-equipped and staffed with qualified medical professionals. However, for serious medical emergencies and major surgeries, some people may prefer to use private hospitals due to shorter waiting times and more personalized care. Foreigners, including expats and digital nomads, are allowed to use the public healthcare system in Cyprus if they meet certain criteria, such as being employed or self-employed in the country. However, many expats choose to use private hospitals for their healthcare needs, as they often provide a higher level of service and comfort.
