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.
BRS welcomes new members; it has two membership categories covering both UK and non-UK passport holders, that are married to a UK passport holder (Associate Membership). The membership is presently hovering around 1,600. Membership application forms can be downloaded here. Completed membership forms (along with your passport) should then be brought to one of our information desks that is listed in the "contact us" link shown above. Please note that our contact points close each August and new memberships cannot be processed until September.
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 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 discount list of over 70 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 information desks. For details of when and where, please click here.
"Members Area" access is restricted to all current BRS members who register their details under the "Registration" tab on this website. (Please allow up to 24 hours for processing).
