You will have to register with immigration if you decide to stay longer. They are very helpful and for us it was a fairly simple process, but we did use an agent. It is easy enough to do on your own though.

Re: GESY ... dream or nightmare?

We have never paid only €1 for a prescription. My blood pressure tablets which I used to pay for privately on prescription were 13.52 (plus a pharmacists prescription charge of about 1.00 euro), now via Gesy they are 1.00 euro in total. But 6 months ago if your BP tablets were available at the hosp...

This is a good read, and personally why I give the cereal rubbish a wide berth.

No antibiotics either and many other medicines are also to be avoided at all costs eg unable to have any x-ray or other tests that involve the use of iodine.

Re: Flu Jabs..

I can't ever, in all of 80 years, remember having flu, very bad colds, coughs and sore throats perhaps but none of these either since moving to Cyprus 20 years ago.
