I am so happy I found this thread as my parents would like to import a duty-free vehicle to Cyprus.
My parents have been living in Paphos for 4-6 months of the year (they are retired). They own a property which is rented out in the summer months and which they use in the winter months. They have not applied for resident status. Their pensions are paid directly in a UK bank account. They are happy to transfer their pensions to a Cyprus bank and apply for residency.
My father would like to import a 4x4 to Cyprus as it would be considerably cheaper than buying in Paphos. If he purchased a 4x4 in the U.K. registered the V5 in his name and insured the vehicle in his name would the vehicle be eligible for export to Cyprus after 6 months exempt from duty?
Your advice would be much appreciated...
