Shipping Container Costs to Cyprus

Cyprus has become a favourite destination for expats in recent years. The island nation’s enviable mix of sunshine, high living standards, and — most importantly — halloumi keeps a steady supply of visitors. Some for a break, others to start a new life. If you’re in the latter group, you’ll need to find the right door-to-door shipping service for your move. Nothing to worry about, but it pays to be prepared.

Different shipping options

Moving to Cyprus begins with shipping your things, and you won’t be the first. Cyprus has long been a bridge between East and West, its placement in the Mediterranean Sea making it an ideal shipping hub. Its proximity to the Suez Canal has seen that role grow in the 21st century and today it boasts one of the largest merchant navies in the world.

Whether you’re shipping a car to cyprus or the contents of your home, the options open to you are the same: sea or air. Air freight to Cyprus is the fastest and most convenient option, but it is also the most expensive. Cheap shipping to Cyprus goes by sea and usually arrives within 2 weeks, depending on the amount you’re shipping.

With international shipping door-to-door delivery is standard practice, so whether you’re heading to Nicosia, Larnaca, or further afield your things will be delivered exactly where you need them.

Major shipping routes

Cyprus’s location makes it highly accessible to would-be movers. The country has no shortage of ports, although one is far and away the most important where shipping containers are concerned:

  • Limassol

The Port of Limassol is Cyprus’s largest port and one of the busiest in the Mediterranean, processing millions of tons of cargo per year. Your belongings will be in safe hands.

Cypriot customs

Although it’s a member of the EU, Cyprus, like any other state, has its own regulations on what can be brought into the country. For the most part it’s the standard fare of leaving drugs, counterfeit goods, and superweapons at home.

We’ve listed some key restricted items below. For a comprehensive guide on what you can and can’t bring we recommend visiting the Cypriot Customs & Excise Department website.
