WELCOME TO THE BRS WEBSITE FOR NORTH CYPRUS
UK Government - Discrimination towards British Nationals and Turkish Cypriots
Our lobbying campaign is continuing by consulting with you on how important the key issues are to you. The survey results will be sent to senior members of the UK Parliament, so we do need as many entries as possible. You only need to be a British National to participate.
We have already seen positive results of the campaign by the visits to the TRNC of both Parliamentarians and journalists and as a result, questions have been asked in Parliament regarding the situation here.
After completing the survey, if you are also registered to vote in the UK, please proceed to send the new letter to encourage your MP into raising specific questions in Parliament.
To see the Phase 2 letter, please click here. It will open in a new tab.
To facilitate matters, the BRS has created a system that will send a pre-populated letter to your MP by email. Please note that this should be from only one person at a time, so as to maximise the impact of the campaign.
Please share this on social media, and with your friends and family, both here in the TRNC and especially those in the UK. Please note the lobby campaign is open to all British Nationals - you do not have to be resident here or be a BRS member, and a solution would help those that just wish to visit this beautiful country.
Please click here to participate.

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.

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.

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 35+ 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.
