The UK transition - information for residents and businesses in the Sovereign Base Areas


Welcome to your online UK transition information hub within British Forces Cyprus and the Sovereign Base Areas

The UK is leaving the EU single market and customs union on the 31 December 2020, and the end of the transition period will affect citizens, businesses, as well as travel to and from the UK.

While the UK Government’s general advice for expatriates and tourists can be found through the UK help and services in Cyprus - GOV.UK, the advice on this site is predominantly aimed at: 

albummilitary and civilian personnel and their families based here in Cyprus; and 

albumresidents and businesses in the Sovereign Base Areas. 


We will continue to update the site and I would suggest that you refer back regularly to keep yourself up to date with any latest developments.
