British law in Cyprus means that the same legal principles that you are familiar with from the United Kingdom are followed here. Such similarities with Western standards make the entire investment process, as well as the purchase and rental of real estate, more transparent and secure.

In Northern Cyprus, main language is English

Another advantage is the common use of the English language for communication in Northern Cyprus. Back on time Great Britain has big impact on Cyprus it self.

This facilitates the adaptation for foreigners and makes communication with the local population, doctors, teachers, and entrepreneurs easier and more effective. Almost every Turkish Cypriot speaks English fluently, so there are no communication problems. In addition, education in schools and universities is conducted in English, which makes it accessible to foreign students. All government structures, ministries, and tax authorities also speak English, which makes your life easier.

An advantage for those who choose Northern Cyprus for investment is the introduction of the new Ercan airport. This means that you can now fly directly to Iran, Russia, and the United Kingdom, opening up huge opportunities for business and travel. 

TCRS is one of the safest countries in the world

Cyprus is known for its safe crime environment. According to Interpol, the crime rate in this part of the island is on average 6 times lower than in Western Europe, which is known for its tough fight against lawbreakers and immediate deportation. Here, you can safely leave your bag on the beach and return after an hour, and all your belongings will still be in place. In addition, the social level of the population in Northern Cyprus is above average. All citizens are thoroughly checked upon entry into the country, and a deposit in a bank is required to obtain residency, which minimizes the influx of low-income population to the island. Crime in Cyprus is low, which makes it very attractive for people looking for a safe place to live and invest.

Low taxes in Cyprus

Another factor to consider is the low taxes in Northern Cyprus. The Cypriot tax regime is very favorable for residents, as well as for entrepreneurs and investors. This can significantly increase your income and save you a lot of money. The low tax rates and the possibility of using installment plans when purchasing property make this region even more attractive for those who are starting their business or planning to invest in real estate. Even students can afford to buy their own homes with the help of favorable and affordable installment plans.

In Northern Cyprus, there is a simple legal system: both individuals and offshore companies, residents and non-residents, pay a small amount of taxes. Here, you will not find a large number of Syrian refugees, as in some other European countries. This makes the region particularly attractive for Europeans and foreign investors.

Northern Cyprus is attractive for real estate investments. Here, you can earn high rental income (up to 7-12 percent per year), and quick return on investment makes such investments even more attractive. The island is actively developing, with new transportation hubs, shopping centers, and educational institutions emerging. Over the past 5 years, Cyprus has undergone significant changes and has become similar to a metropolis. Large investments from Turkey, England, and Germany show that the island is a promising place for the development of a wide range of industries. The banking sector is actively developing, and new multi currency banks are appearing.

Alternative energy sources also play a significant role in international investment. Huge solar battery projects fully provide the island with electricity and attract major players from around the world. Over the past 3 years, property prices in Northern Cyprus have increased by 79 percent. Such capital growth is unmatched anywhere in Europe.

Northern Cyprus can also boast of good medical facilities and a high level of education. Here you will find modern medical institutions and highly qualified doctors.

All universities in Northern Cyprus are accredited by the Ministry of Education in Turkey and recognized worldwide. There are over 10 universities on the island. Higher education institutions in Northern Cyprus offer education in English and Turkish languages. In order to attract and increase the number of students from other countries, universities offer 50% grants, discounts for families with 2 or more students, grants for athletes, and winners of international and local competitions. This can be particularly attractive for families with children who want to receive quality education at more affordable prices.

Modern 4.5G Connectivity

Another advantage is access to modern 4.5G connectivity. In September 2023, the Minister of Public Works and Transportation, Erhan Arikli, announced that TRNC is transitioning to 4.5G. According to the minister, this project will contribute 1 billion 250 million Turkish lira to the country’s treasury. Northern Cyprus is implementing advanced communication and internet technologies, making it one of the most advanced regions in this regard.

Ecology and Nature of Cyprus

Studies on ecological efficiency have shown excellent air quality and water cleanliness in Northern Cyprus. The use of alternative energy sources, such as solar panels, is widespread, justified by the local climate with a significant number of sunny days, and is a big advantage for the island’s ecology. The cleanest beaches with fine white sand, recognized by Forbes magazine, a large number of eco-products, low levels of harmful emissions, and the absence of large plants and factories ensure the cleanliness of the environment and the health of the population.

The island is ideal for retirees. Here, you can enjoy a peaceful and safe environment, picturesque nature, a warm climate, proximity to the sea, and a high standard of living and healthcare.

Convenience of Payments in Northern Cyprus

In Northern Cyprus, it is possible to use cryptocurrency or cash for property payments.

The island has a developed electronic payment system, and the transition to new communication technologies gives the island enormous potential for development.
