Wishful thinking I think, as far as I'm aware you have to apply every year.

WE asked about the 2 year residency last year and were told it isn't available - yet it had been supposedly on offer as they advertised it where you go to collect your residency!!!!!!!!

Never heard of it for residency. would be nice, but I don't think the system could cope. They can hardly cope with the annual ones! Judging from the complaints, anyway!

But, of course, go to the experts (who always vary in their advic\e), but I think that is just another one of those famous Chinese Whispers for which this place is famous.

They are ever so helpful, I'm sure they'd give you a 2 year, 3 year, 4 year, whatever you asked for. They will come to your house to sort it all out and save you the drive to the nasty police station and immigration dept. in Lefkosa. If you don't have all the required documentation I'm sure they won't worry too much about that either

We were in Lefkosa Immigration yesterday and there was a rumour going round that, if you're over the age of 60, you can get a 2 year residency visa - in our group, nobody had brought enough cash with them to put it to the test - so, we're still like the proverbial mushrooms!



The whole idiotic rigmarole, our fifth, took us about two and a half hours - we just finished on the dot of 12 o'clock - the doors were slammed shut as we were being 'processed', so we were the last ones out before lunchtime - lucky, eh!

I have just received my 2 year business permit, my last one was 2 years and it cost 1100tl this time its cost 2200tl,

Excluding the blood test 150 last time 80 tl this time and a letter from the bank to say i have locked 10,000tl cost 690tl (at Limassol Bank and 400tl at Turk bank)

Did you know you can register as a foreigner in the south for 10 euros and you only have to do it once in your whole like, ahhh the wonders of the EU countries !!!!

Went to Lefkosia to renew today. After hearing of problems, the wife and I arrived at 6-30. One guy waiting indicated sheet of paper and told us to put our names down. Numbers 6 and 7. Queue built up gradually until about 7-45 when doors opened. An official sheet was put down and we all transferred our names to it. Went inside, had a coffee, 1.5tl each and purchased necessary stamps, 6.6tl each. Went back to waiting room, the laughing policeman opened the ticket box and ran about 30 tickets off. He wouldn't deal with anyone until back in waiting room where he issued numbers corresponding to the sheet, NO queue jumpers. Although the sign on the door said opening time 8-30, it was 9-00 when we started going in. (there was a 5 min power cut at 8-45). We were out by 9-30 and home by 10-00. The only Brit that was complaining was one that turned up about 8-15, not much sympathy there then. I can't see why there is so much complaining about these systems, they work, it's a pity UK don't do it

Yea,but what if you hate mornings, (like Peanuts!). I prefer to take my chances of arriving at 11.30a.m. That way I am awake, and just go off for a coffee if I have the door slammed in my face. Last time I did it, all was well and it took an hour, with a funny man changing the ticket numbers depending on the grins or otherwise onpeople's faces.



No point moaning about the system, just go with the flow. If you are an early riser, so be it, if you are like me, take your chances. If you want to stay here, no point moaning about the system.!



And I had better start the ball rolling I guess. Mine is due for renewal next month. should be eligible for permanent, so I gtuess I should find out all about it!
