Hi I am thinking of moving for a year to Paphos I will be renting but returning to the UK after a year, I have registered with other sites but need as much information as I can before I make that final step. Im 65 so have my state pension here, what is the procedure as I will not be living there permanently. Any advice will be much appreciated, ie private health care or public health care entitlement. my partner isn't in receipt of state pension.

Hi kingsnorth

As EU citizens you are entitled to free healthcare in Cyprus but you need to register for a state health card.

Please read the Healthcare in Cyprus page for more insights.

Do you have any long-term health issues? If you do. it maybe a good idea to get some private healthcare provision as well.

My advice is to make sure you have full private medical cover..declaring all know and previously treated ailments etc
