 International Moving Services in Cyprus

Cyprus International Moving Services

International moving involves the transportation of goods from one country to another. It can come about following changes in an industry, the operations of a business or an individual’s life. There are professionals who provide international moving services such as transportation, storage, packing and unpacking and in general assist their clients to move with ease.

How Much Does It Cost to Move to Cyprus?

The cost of moving internationally to Cyprus can range anywhere from $2,000-$12,000 depending on various factors such as move size, total distance, route, transportation method, and current market trends.

Studio or one-bedroom apartments can be found in the $400-$500 range per month. About $600-$700 a month for a detached property. However, a studio or 1-bedroom apartment in Limassol can set you back $700-$800 per month and even more. Apartments with three bedrooms start at $1,200 per month. There are also other factors to consider when it comes to costs, such as the legal fees, moving insurance, shipping rates, and storage costs:

Moving Insurance

To protect your things, insurance can be added. The basic insurance provided by a moving company may not be adequate to cover damages that may occur during a move, depending on the size of the action and the distance.

Purchasing additional coverage through the moving firm is advisable for international transfers, but the overall cost will be affected.

International Shipping Method

Customers who employ international movers have access to a wide variety of different shipping choices. The two most fundamental modes of freight transportation are air freight and ocean freight. The first choice is more expensive but offers a faster completion time, while the second is more economical but takes longer to finish. Depending on the option you go with, you will also be responsible for paying for the trucks that will deliver your possessions to and from the port or airport.

Storage

Not everyone relocating will have to deal with storage expenses, but it can be expected. You will be charged additional storage fees if the movers have to hold on to any of your belongings before the final delivery date. Moving out and moving in simultaneously can save you a lot of money.

Import duties charged by customs

If you’ll be moving to Cyprus and bringing the bulk of your household goods with you - it’s possible to import these without paying duty. To be eligible, you’ll need to have owned these items for a minimum of one year. In addition, you and your family must have been personally using these goods during this time. You also are required to have lived abroad for more than the last 12 months, and to import reasonable quantities of these goods. Finally, you’re not permitted to sell them once you enter Cyprus.

Even if you receive duty exemption on your shipment, if you’ll be relocating to Cyprus for a long duration - then a Temporary Refugee Levy (or TRL) will be assessed on your goods. Also, it is possible that specific items may not fall under duty exemption, so speak with customs to learn what fees your shipment will incur (1).

Documents For Importing By Customs

Import documents prescribed by customs

Certain paperwork is required to process your shipment, including a packing list and your passport. A completed Form 1002 should also be presented, which has been stamped and signed by the embassy in your origin country. Your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill must also be shown. If you’re moving from an EU country, you’ll also need a T2L form (which bears the signature of customs in your origin country).

If you’re coming from a non-EU nation instead, then you’ll need a Letter of Employment. A bank statement verifying that you have money deposited within Cyprus is also required. You should also include copies of your utility bills and your past lease or sales contract, for your previous residence in your origin country. Proof of school registration and an exemption from the embassy in your origin country, round out the list of required paperwork (2).

Import duties charged on your vehicle

There are conflicting accounts from reputable sources, on the topic of how duties are handled by customs. One source states that duty exemption is available, provided you meet the necessary conditions. These include coming from a non-EU country, having owned the vehicle for longer than the last six months - and having an odometer reading of higher than 6,000 kilometers.

You also must have lived outside of Cyprus for at least 12 months in a row, and import the vehicle no later than six months after moving. Exempt status also requires that you prove permanent relocation to the country, and that you pay the necessary value-added tax (VAT). This VAT is separate from import duties, and currently stands at around 18% (3).

Import documents for your vehicle

Before your vehicle will be authorized to enter Cyprus, you must provide proof of insurance. The purchase invoice or receipt and the vehicle’s registration are also needed. Your passport will also be requested, along with quite a few additional forms (4).

This discussion isn’t exhaustive, and other paperwork requirements and regulations apply to your household items and vehicle. Be sure to get in touch with customs before moving, to verify that you’re in full compliance.

You also benefit from having ease of mind by having a shipping company ship your car to Cyprus since they will handle all logistical issues.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
