Re: Biometric Card - 2026

Fishbeardsunset, it sounds as if you, having arrived after the UK's Brexit agreement, have come here under different terms to many of us who have been living here previously ( before Brexit) as EU citizens. If this is so then the subject being talked about on this post may not apply to you. To Kili...

Re: Biometric Card - 2026

Just to add my two pence- I have my residency biometric card from March last year and it is stamped as valid up till 28/4/33 and also permits me to enter the UK for a period of 5 years to stay, if I wish- without any penalties if I so then desire to return back to Cyprus. With that in mind, I cannot...

Re: New Bus Stations Announced, And Fare Rises.

The 'new ' bus stop near the Archaeological Park was last summer in constant use by tourist coaches. I wonder where these coaches will park next summer? The present spot where the busses are parking is right at the back of the car park opposite the Leptos Head Offices. This latter spot is arguably ...

Re: New Bus Stations Announced, And Fare Rises.

Although I hardly ever use the buses, I think the price rise is very fair.. As someone that is a regular bus user- and this is just my personal observation; but whilst I accept that there has not been an increases in fares since I came here in 2016, some of the pricing structure is crazy in percent...

Re: Coral bay avenue roadworks

And your friend was right- more disruption -for those businesses that have not already closed for the Winter. They have now blocked off the road from outside the bank of Cyprus right down to the Crown Hotel- This also has resulted in a diversion for the 615 and 616 buses which now run along the main...

Superb video Dominic :D -- pity you could not not manage to show the huge Xmas tree on the ground floor- and also amazed that you filmed with hardly any shoppers about- as you would expect this place to be heaving...
