Electricity in Cyprus

The supply in Cyprus is 240 volts, a.c. 50Hz. Sockets are usually 13 amp, square-pin in most buildings.

More than one low current rating appliance may be operated from the same supply point, by using an adaptor (i.e. radios, electric clocks etc.).

The use of adaptors for operating high current rating appliances is not recommended (i.e. electric heaters, toasters, irons etc.).

Many hotels provide adaptors upon request from the Reception.

Adaptors can be purchased from electricians, supermarkets, grocery shops, etc.
