Canadian friend with Filipina spouse wants to fly in to Ercan and out of Larnaca. I believe that the G Cyps have relaxed things for Canadians but I cannot get info about Filipion passport holders anywhere. Any help?



Thanks

hi merryrob

both your friend and his spouse will have no trouble entering north cyprus and obtaining a visa the cost is around 17 and can be obtained in port of entry

now entering the south is a diffrent ball game your candian friend does not need a visa but his spouse if im not mistaken who is philippino and not filipino (thats why you probabley cant get no info on it!!!! LOL) will need a 90 visa which they will have to obtain before travelling the best thing is for them to go down to the cyprus embasy wherever they live and obtain the visa in person

hope this helps

Even if you get a visa, they may refuse entry if you come to Cyprus through "an illegal port" i.e "Ercan" as they put it. Ever since Cyprus joined EU, they cannot do that to EU citizens but they are free to do so with other people.

I am an African travelling to the north cyprus. Can travel on the north Cyprus visa in my passport to cross over to the south to watch a football tournament?

daniel,



You won't be able to cross south into the EU without a visa unless you are the citizen of an EU country or have special dispensation.

As an Australian they often ask which airport you came in from when crossing into the South and sometimes they check your passport. I presume if you answered Ercan you would be sent back.



Technically the south (ROC) will only give you an automatic 90 day visa if you enter the ROC first and they could give you trouble if you enter via Ercan and try to leave from Larnaca. An Australian Consular staff member told me the story of an Australian who tried to do this and was put into a holding cell at Larnaca until the Consul convinced the ROC officials to let him go which they eventually did.



EU citizens don't have this problem.
