WELCOME TO THE BRS WEBSITE FOR NORTH CYPRUS
The British Residents Society is a non-profit organisation, run by volunteers, that provides information, support and advice for those owning or renting property in North Cyprus. We endeavour to ensure that information is up to date and accurate but if you come across something wrong or feel that we should be adding content, please feel free to contact us.
The objectives of the Society are to foster friendly relations with the people of Cyprus, to advise and assist members and to make representation on their behalf to the authorities.
BRS welcomes new members and the membership is presently hovering around 2,100. Full membership is open to all holders of a valid British Passport, who own/rent property and use it regularly or as a holiday/second home, once their application has been approved by the Committee. Associate Membership is available to persons of another nationality who are married to full members or holders of current EU passports. There is an annual subscription of 80TL p.a. due on the first of January each year. To join please click here.
Although we provide a service mainly to our members, we try to assist anyone else who asks. Most of our website advice and many of our services are shared with all who live or wish to live in the TRNC regardless of nationality. The Society is strictly non-partisan and non-profit making.
The BRS has existed since 1975 and during that time has been able to influence successive TRNC governments in improving the quality of life for many ex-patriates. In addition to our work on residency, property and health, our members benefit financially from:
- A current discount list of 29 businesses
- Discounts at leading private hospitals
- Low cost banking from Creditwest
If you would like to have a chat in person, please visit one of our clinics. For details of when and where, please click here.
If you are not yet a member and would like to join please register online, download and print the Membership Form and bring it with your passport to one of our clinics. Please note that our contact points close each August and new memberships cannot be processed until September.
Members are also invited to join the Official BRS Facebook Group - British Residents’ Society - Official.
