FAQ

Non TRNC Citizens are entitled to take title to only one property up to a maximum area of 5 donums with one dwelling situated thereupon. If you wish to take title to more than one property, or a property over 5 donums in area, you will need to find a nominee (this person should be a friend or relative or someone you know and trust) to take title to the property and hold the property in trust for you or you will need to set up a TRNC company. Your lawyer would be able to advise on these processes in further detail.

Turkish Cypriots are predominantly Muslim, with Christian and Jewish minorities living happily amongst them. The Turkish Cypriot interpretation of Islam is very relaxed, with alcohol freely available and women dressing in western European clothes. Gambling is permitted at the many casinos and they are full with locals and tourists alike at the weekends.

The currency is the Turkish Lira. Exchange rates fluctuate but on the whole the currency is very stable. GBP, Euros and US Dollars are readily accepted, with change normally given in Turkish Lira. Credit cards are also widely accepted.

There are several different places along the border where you can cross in either direction between the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Republic of Cyprus. The main crossing points are in Nicosia at Ledra Palace and Metehan and also at Famagusta. EU passport holders can enter the South with a valid passport while other passport holders will need to contact the Republic of Cyprus's Embassy or Consulate in their country of domicile to obtain a visa. Your passport will be checked on both the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot sides of the border. There are limits to the amount of goods you can import or export on either side. For example limits are placed on cigarettes, alcohol etc. Crossing is very easy and straightforward to do. If you are driving across you will need insurance which can be bought at the crossing. A month’s cover will cost approximately 25 euros.

If you are a British or EU passport holder with at least 6 months left to run on your passport you can enter Northern Cyprus. When you arrive at Ercan Airport in the North or on crossing the border between the South and North you will be required to complete a visa form with your name, nationality and passport number. There is no charge for this. Other nationalities may require a visa to enter Northern Cyprus. You can get complete and up to date information from the offices of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus by calling their office in London on +44 207 631 1930
