Important information concerning travel to the Turkish-occupied areas of Cyprus

Since the illegal Turkish invasion of July 1974, 36% of the territory of the Republic of Cyprus remails unlawfully occupied by the Turkish army (you may read more about it here if you are interested). As a result of this, the government of the Republic of Cyprus which is the sole legal and internationally recognized government on the island, is not in a position to exercise effective control over the occupied areas of its territory.

If you intend to travel to Cyprus, you should be aware that the so-called "trnC", the secessionist entity unilaterally declared by the occupation regime, has been condemned and declared illegal and invalid by the International Community through United Nations Security Council Resolutions 541/83 and 550/84.

Currently, and subject to any temporary COVID-related restrictions, it is possible for foreign visitors who visit the government-controlled areas of the Republic of Cyprus, to cross to the occupied areas.

You should be aware, however, that staying in properties owned by Greek Cypriot refugees who have been foreced by the occupation army to flee, including hotels in the occupied area which are being illegally exploited, would put you at risk of possible legal action on the part of the owners.

Travelers entering the Republic of Cyprus via any illegally operating airport or port in the occupied area that has been declared closed in accordance with International Law, will be in breach of national legislation of the Republic of Cyprus. You are therefore urged to travel via the legal points of entry to the Republic of Cyprus, so as to avoid the risk of facing the consequences of the law.

The legal points of entry to the Republic of Cyprus are the intenational airports of Larnaca and Paphos and the ports of Larnaca, Limassol, Latsi and Paphos, which are situated in the area under the effective control of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus. Entry to the territory of the Republic of Cyprus via any other port or airport in the area of Cyprus in which the Government of the Republic does not exercise effective control (Turkish occupied area) is illegal.
