Cyprus's District Administration Structure

Although overseen by the Ministry of the Interior, the administration of the Republic's individual districts is a decentralised affair, with a high-level civil servant (District Officer) presiding over his or her precinct's bureaucratic comings and goings. Each of Cyprus' six provinces also has its own administrative office, with the exception of Kyrenia and Free Famagusta. The former is actually a District in Exile, being, as it were, wholly located in the TRNC, whereas the latter is controlled by Paralimni Municipality, as the bulk of this district too, is located in the North. Below you'll find the main contact details for each of these individual offices.

The Citizen Service Centre, a Single-Source Bureaucratic Outlet

When we first started operating in the Republic back in 2004, getting anything done through official channels was frankly a bit of a nightmare. Whether you applied for permanent residence, needed to change your driving licence, or wanted something as simple as road tax for your vehicle, you’d be sent from pillar to post before you could finally get the job done. But fortunately things have changed somewhat during the intervening years, as the laid-back, disorganised Cypriot approach to bureaucracy has gradually been replaced with a somewhat smoother European-style way of doing business.

And so, at the beginning of December 2005, the Ministry of Finance proudly announced the opening of the first Citizen Service Centre (CSC) in Nicosia. This centre was designed to be a single-source outlet for all things bureaucratic, from residence permits to road tax disks. As time has progressed, further centres were opened in the Republic's major towns and cities, and nowadays these are also able to handle most enquiries and applications which previously took several visits to different departments to accomplish, including sickness benefit , passports and marriage licence applications.

Currently (January 2012), there are five Citizen Service Centres operating throughout the Republic. You can find their addresses and contact details below. According to the Ministry of Finance, plans are underway to open further locations as time progresses, so presumably we shall see one somewhere appearing in the Paralimni region soonish.

Living in Cyprus

Out there on the wild Internet you'll find any number of websites telling you how great life in Cyprus is. But while there is undoubtedly a fair measure of truth behind the statement that living on Aphrodite's Isle is preferable to living in Blighty, the simple fact remains that it's oftentimes far more complicated and involved than these websites actually make it out to be.

Moving to Cyprus

By the same token, many sites out there are singing the praises of a new life in the sun, and telling all and sundry that moving to Cyprus is the only way forward. And, once again, while there are a great many reasons to make a move to the Republic, there are also an equal number of reasons against it. The simple fact is that the Republic of Cyprus is a real country, and not the sun-soaked paradise many agencies out there make it out to be.
