Re: Free healthcare comes at a price

The maths of this are easy . Income from pensions say 14,000€ - 2.65% = 397.5 to pay to Gesy . I realise some have higher income. U.K. pensioners with S1 , the U.K. pays to Cyprus about 2000€ per year , hence why we are exempt from paying 2.65% . It is hard to find out exactly how much the U.K. pays...

Some UK expat pensioners applied for GESY with a MEU3 and were not asked to provide confirmation of a S1. How can they get an exemption certificate, I wonder?

Re: Smart phone holder for car

I use the one that fits in the CD player slot . I have been using it for over 2 years now , never had a problem with it , it doesn’t wobble about and has not affected the CD player . I can even play a cd with it in . I bought it off amazon .

Re: GPS who knows?

Re: Free healthcare comes at a price

Well a lot of cash spent on expats is funded by the UK's NHS system, OAPs in particular, we also will be paying into the GHS here from our bank balance and income, fair enough even if we are paying in twice.

Re: Cyprus Tax Declaration from 2019

Ha! We have tried several times to get Pam registered for Income Tax (she has a TIC for IPT) but whenever we visit the tax office told it is not necessary as her income is only a UK State pension and below the 19500 tax fresh hold. We even took a completed tax application down there earlier this mo...

Re: Applying for UK passport on line

I must have been lucky Trev , DHL have a line written in that says they might use local delivery partners .

Mind you in the past two years DHL have been good with me , always delivering to my door .
