Cost of Living in Northern Cyprus

Living costs in Northern Cyprus are much cheaper than the UK and most of Europe. There is no rates system at present. The main costs are electricity (approx. 15 monthly per house for a couple), water (5 monthly) and an annual council tax is usually less than 50. Central heating is becoming more and more popular in North Cyprus with new build properties and is usually run on gas, oil or diesel. Most cookers are run on LPG gas and/or electricity.

Locally produced products or those produced in Turkey are generally cheaper than their European counterparts. However, goods imported from Europe tend to tend to be higher in price than their country of origin. Cigarettes and alcohol are very cheap.
