By Margaret Sheard…….

The Secretary of The Foreign Residents in the TRNC, Ralph Kratzer, has shared with their members the new post codes Postmanfrom the article in the 13th February edition of Cyprus Today and in the event that any of our readers did not see this article we are publishing the link to the TRNC Post Office where you can view the post codes  for your information and future use.

Note:  The new 5 digit code has to be written under the code “Mersin 10 / Turkey” which still remains a part of the address.

To find the post code for your area on the KKTC Post code  listings click here

Many readers ask us to help them confirm their post codes which we are happy to do however often the information given by the reader is not complete so it is difficult for us to confirm the postcode for a location. May we suggest to any future readers wanting help, please first go to Google World or Maps where they can locate their road or street and when comparing this with a city/village listed on the KKTC attachment they should be able to identify their correct post code.

  1. How do you know which is yours? We live in Alsancak but is it 99350 or 99360? I think the 99360! Jenny

    Be Kind, Please REMOVE my Email Address, use BCC when forwarding. Say NO to Spammers & Computer Viruses!



      Hi Jenny, I am not an expert on these things but hopefully to clarify I have highlighted the village names and when you translate KÖYÜ it means village and Mah is an abbreviation for Mahalle which means Quarter or Ward according to the “Redbook”.

      So for anyone to decide which is their post code is, select the nearest village or area in which your property is located.

      Perhaps in the not too distant future when buying items on line you will be able to give your post code and your location may come up on the verification system. Now that will be the icing on the cake of progress!

    1. I have checked the post codes and it looks as if the postcode for Gazi Magusa town area is 99450. If you go into Google Earth and check the street names you will be able to confirm this. Not knowing where the new Lemar is it is difficult to work out the post code but I am assuming it is somewhere in the centre so the post code would be 99450.

      Famagusta or Gazi Maguza is listed on the link we have provided within our article and almost all areas are shown under 99450.

      Kaliland Yeşilbulut 2 apt.
      Mersin 10 Turkey

    1. As you may have seen, the district is not show on the TRNC Post Office listing so to be 110% sure, perhaps you should email them via their wensite and give them the address you are quoting and ask them to clarify..

  25. I sent a tracked envelope with a contactless debit card to my Mother in North Cyprus. It has been over a month and there is no sign of it. When I check the tracking number it shows as being held in Turkey. The local post office to my Mum insists that I have sent it to the wrong address but I believe it has been stolen by corrupt officials – not the first time! SO….I need any information of setting up a P.O.Box in the Republic/South side. Does anyone have any info on this. I’ve trawled the net but can’t find much. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    1. Have you registered this post? If you have you can ask the sender to ask the current holder to release the post.

      Posting to North Cyprus includes Mersin 10, Turkey in the postal address so in all probability it has arrived and if not at the local office it will be in the main Lefkosa office and we have given a link in our article to the TRNC Post Office website who you can contact to find your post.

      In future do not make unfounded and unproven allegations “I believe it has been stolen by corrupt officials – not the first time! ” and if you do, your post will be deleted without explanation.

  26. Hello? I am waiting for my post from USA but I wrote address Eastern Mediterranean University, DAU-1, Mersin 10 Turkey, Famagusta 99628, Cyprus. So I think this is wrong right? So now my post already arrived in Cyprus. What should I do now pls help me?
