I'm registered as a dependant of a pensioner (early retirement, I might add), so I can't help on the work/ business question.
If you go into immigration they will give you a list of the things you need.
We are renting for a year, to try it out.
I took early retirement from teaching in the UK, I will be 58 and my wife 51, might do a bit of teaching in Cyprus. We will have our 12 year old daughter with us.
Do you have the E106 for yourselves ? I believe our daughter just needs the E111.
E111 has now been replaced with EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) - before you leave the UK you apply for some form or other (sorry, not sure which) and then you're apparently covered for at least a year (maybe longer) under your EHIC. As posted above, the EHIC is basically for tourists travelling within Europe - you'll be charged €2 (admin charges?) if you need to use it.
Also, as someone else has already posted, if you're in employment when you apply at Immigration (is it really necessary now for EU citizens?) then no medical insurance cover required - much shorter form but needs your employer's details and their company stamp.
Go into the FAQ section and onto page two.Bobbeer has posted a thread headed "Health Care Entitlement in Cyprus under EU Regs"
If you go full size on the image you will have everything spelled out for you.Hope this helps 'cos its a minefield.
As Campbell has said it's a minefield.
We applied for E106 while we were still in UK. I didn't get it because I wasn't working.
Bill did get it, but it was only valid for two years from the date he stopped work so he only had 2 months on it when we arrived, so we didn't bother registering.
If either of you are entitled to it, the notes say you may be able to be registered as a dependant
As Christine said, E111 has been replaced by EHIC, which is for tourists, but there are a lot of people in Cyprus illegally using it for treatment.
EHIC is valid for 5 years, but don't tell them you're going abroad, I did and they only issued me with cards for 1 year.
If it's any help, we're a little bit younger than you, 52 and 48, with a 12 year old and our medical insurance was just under cyŁ600 for a year.
Just out of interest. Have you needed to claim on your medical insurance ?
Under the NHS GP system we have pre- existing conditions monitored and annual check ups etc.
Do you know the best way to achieve this in Cyprus ?
eg Registering medical records with a clinic.
Yes, I saw that too.
It's just that as you get older, it is sensible to keep an eye on things like blood pressure/ cholesterol and that is why UK GP's now do this, or rather the nurses do, on at least an annual basis.Prevention is better than waiting until something has already gone wrong, is the theory.Mind you the Cyprus lifestyle is a great starter!
I suppose you could just pay to visit a doctor and have these tests done periodically.
No Andrew, never needed to claim and we never needed a doctor either.
I have read somewhere that you can get a printout from your GP to take to Cyprus with you.
I have spoken with my GP, and closer to leaving the UK I am going to sit with the Head Receptionist at the doctors and she said she will give me a print out to take with me. The doctors I visit at the hospital, have been lovely, they have said that once I have a doctors sorted over there they will send a copy of my records over. They even wrote to me and said that if I have an address before I go they would do it before I left the UK.
