  1. Took a long time to find you but an excellent site. We will be regular followers.
    Can you put CES(V) contacts up under the Civil Defence Details it would be appreciated.
    Hope to see you all in May.

  2. I need help ! My fiance was injured in the coach crash in Gaziantep with the EMU students. Due to her injuries she cannot cook for herself . Are there any electrical retailers in North Cyprus where I can mail order a microwave for delivery to Famagusta ? Your help would really be appreciated.

    • Great question Julie. Please go to the bottom of our home page or that of any article and you will see a number of icons of TRNC Ministry which if clicked hopefully will take you to the information you are looking for.

      We will look at adding the appropriate information to our contact page . Thank you again for your question.

    • Sorry I was not able to come back to you until now Julie. I think you will find all of the contact information you require on this link click which can also be accessed through the Ministery of Tourism icon on our home page.

  3. PLEASE I AM A FOREIGN STUDENT (NIGERIAN) HOW DO I RECOVER MY LOST PASSPORT? And can I get the Magusa/Famagusta Trash disposal contact number pleaseee??

    • If you have lost your passport the first thing you must do is report it to local police who will put you in contact with the immegration police. You will then need to apply for a new passport from your Nigerian local representative which may have an office in Nicosia in South Cyprus

  4. I am out of TRNC at the moment but my son is studying in TRNC, I bought him a laptop and a tablet that are needed for his studies from amazon,and it’s currently being sent to his address in TRNC (Mersin 10,Turkey). However I don’t know about the customs and taxes needed for the imported electronics. Can you please inform me about the system of imported items bought from Amazon?

  5. Hi I am looking for a good Solicter that can help me with problems I am having with getting a Tereke closed, it’s been going on for 9 years,

  6. If I have a place in the north and want to go only twice a year for 90 days do I still need to get residency

    • WE are not sure what you are asking?

      Firstly you can open a bank account and if tax is due on interest paid this is deducted at the source.

      If you are asking about paying tax for example on say rent received on a property that is a separate issue

  7. I arrived in Northern Cyprus on 1 January 2021 and I anticipated that I would be under quarantine conditions for 10 days in the location chosen for me by the relevant authorities.
    I did not expect, however, to be dumped in some smoking den in Nicosia. I cannot breathe, I cannot rest, I cannot sleep, I cannot eat, I cannot exist in this place. Pillows, blankets, curtains, air are permeated with foul stench. I had to clean the surfaces and the remains of someone’s unfinished tea in the kettle. I incidentally did not have any towels in my luggage and have to be rather inventive to avoid touching rather well-used towels left in my room. I will now have to spend good amount of time cleaning and sterilizing every item in my luggage and all my clothes that absorbed the offensive smell of this place.
    You prevent me from being in my clean house in Lefke where I can isolate myself perfectly well and enjoy fresh air and the cleanliness of my own house. You force me into anti-sanitary environment where you fill my lungs with filth and prevent me from satisfying normal basic human need to sleep in a clean bed. What is the rationale behind this, may I ask?
    I have not committed any crimes to be incarcerated in filthy conditions without any access to fresh air or any basics. I do not question your decision to keep people under quarantine conditions. However, I resent this forceful imposition of undignified living conditions.
    Badly done, badly done indeed.

    • Thank you for your comment but may we suggest you make your complaint direct to the management of the quarantine centre.

      If they can not help you then make your complaint to the TRNC Ministry of Health http://saglik.gov.ct.tr/
