By Chris Elliott

The excellent presentation was made by Consular Officers, Zoe Woodward and James McCamley and covered a very wide range of subjects and it was amazing to note some very simple and basic facts and actions that many of us fail to attend to.

Firstly how many readers have registered that they are residing in North Cyprus with the British High Commission? Have you filled in the details of your next of kin in your passport?  How many people actually notify their next of kin when perhaps they are going on holiday away from North Cyprus?

This is but the tip of the iceberg of their work. They spend a great deal of their time in giving support and advice to those that seek it. At the presentation they had a wide range of booklets covering passport services, emergency travel documents, and so much more and we hope to bring you more information in the future.

If you need to obtain information now, there is a new website which gives a wide range of information about Cyprus on :

    1. Hello David
      If you do have property or assets in North Cyprus then a separate Will in North Cyprus should be made. It is common practice here to have the Will lodged at the courts in North Cyprus were it will be kept safe.

      For further information on Wills in North Cyprus maybe I can guide you to a link of Citizens Advice Cyprus who will be able to give you good legal advice on this subject. Please refer to their webpage for more information click here
