Last two years August was a very laid back time of year, even though there are many tourists and would-be residents who are looking at Paphos as a retirement or second home destination.

Registering with the Embassy or High Commission in Cyprus

It is a good idea for all non-Cypriot citizens who are living in Cyprus to email or call your respective High Commission or Embassy to register with them.
