LOA Rates - Cyprus

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by Spanner, Dec 22, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know what the LOA rates are for Cyprus? Thanks.
     
  2. Rank? Married? Kids?

    Might help
     
  3. Well i'm married and going next year with the TA on a UN tour.

    Any help would be great, i've been told that i shoulf be opn about £600 a month extra, is that correct.
     
  4. Left the UN last year. No daily LOA to speak of. The UN pays the Governement, who I understand (Probably a good rumour), keep the lions share of the cash. After 13 months with the UN I got approximately £500.00 one off payment when I left. Something like US $2.25 a day.

    I did get LSSA though, (I think its called something else now), which as a WO, equated to about £350.00 a month.

    Cyprus is not cheap either my friend. Any extra beer tokens you earn, you are likely to need.

    It's about 80 Cyp pence to the UK pound.
     
  5. If you are with the UN in Nickosia you will be on about £600 a month.

    TA, I don't know.
