I am new to this site and i am very keen to move away from the UK for a better quality of lifestyle for my family. We are looking to move in 2010 or 2011 (V.latest) The preferred choice of country for myself and my partner is Cyprus, we have been to the famagusta area and fell in love with the place!
However, across one of the books i have been reading it states that we need 30.000 Euros in our bank and need to prove this by bank statements before we can apply for a permit to reside and work within Cyprus. Is this true or are there certain ways around it? I am obviously aware i will need to have money to support my family but i believe that 30.000 Euros is a little extreme if we are working
Basically, if possible our plan is to find work before making the move out there (we will visit employers etc,etc before moving lock, stock and barrel!), Find a fairly cheap 2 bed apartment to rent and take it from there for 12-18 months and see if we would like to stay on a more 'permanant' basis.
Any infomation regarding moving/jobs/childcare/things to consider is gratefully appreciated.
Thanks all for ready, i look forward to your answers
