I have just done what you about to do...and it was quite complicated. I would advise having a Turkish Cypriot run you through the process.



I know we started by going to the Muktar. You need a letter from the Muktar (which I think confirms that you are who you say you are). I and the former owner had to show our passports to the Muktar. There was a stamp fee for this. I think you have to go to the MUktar in the area where the car is registered. (We went to Lefkosia where the former owner had purchased and registered the car)



Then you go to the registry office. It takes quite awhile and there is a stamp duty there too and finally I paid 250ytl.



I am sorry I cannot give it to you more accurately...hopefully someone else can.

when we purchased my car, the garage needed my passport, but i didn't have any kind of muktars letter.

when hubby sold his quad bike he just went to the office with the guy who was buying it, he was a tc ,so i dont know if that makes any difference.



why not pop into your local police station and ask them what you need to do.

as the rules change daily,lol.

Augusta has it right. You and the buyer or seller to Muktar, both passports and a small fee. Take completed and stamped form (stamp 1.1tl) to Lefkosia with photocopies of both passport photo pages. Pay 250tl and Bobs your uncle! Rev Walker recently commented in Cyprus Today how relatively painless the process was.

I know both seller and buyer have to go to the muhktar or noter but is it necessary for the seller also to go with you to Nicosia when changing the log book over as long as he has filled in the form.

You need to get to the office in Lefkosia early as they close at 12 noon.

It was more time wasting than effort, I went with Christine (Augusta) as it was my car she bought, I had to be with her for the first part (Muktar) to verify I was the owner, but I didn't have to go to Lefkosa to get the names changed, but did so out of decency. The price was 250ytl plus the Muktar stamp

any more help just ask

Jock 1. Thanks for that. Did you have to take a copy of the sellers passport?



Hattikins. Thanks for the info, but do they reopen in the afternoon.

Hi there,

No, they don't open in the afternoon and they close the doors about 11.45 to stop anyone else going in.

Sorry don't know how this got here.It was posted 14.01.09.

I was lucky,went with previous owner,found the carpark near building.

Met a gentleman Brit who was registering a motorbike.He knew the ropes,helped us fill in the Turkish form,6.5tl stamp from lady outside,

to the counter in 15 mins,gave 250tl,and job done!!!

Yes you need an experienced Brit or Turkish speaker.
