Is it possible to legally import and transport furnitures from Ikea in ROC to TRNC?

How much is the import duty, vat and other fees.

Yes it is possible,providing you gain "import license"



Last year tax on it was %30,if its same now or not I dont know

Its not very hard to get the license either

From the "Imports" Office last year: license to import anything into Northern Cyprus from Southern Cyprus will only be granted on those items that have been produced in Southern Cyprus! Anything previously imported into Southern Cyprus from another country has not been produced in Southern Cyprus and therefore will not be granted an import license.



Went down this road for days last year - but would be most happy to find out it had changed overnight, again!

Yorgozlu,

That is the place where I found the final answer. Waste of time to ask the customs as they will not agree with each other and in the end will ask for an import license.



It is a bit sad really because I only wanted one item and was quite happy to pay the 30% import duty on it - not the 100% fine as well - so both myself and the TRNC lost out!

Call me thick if you want, but why do you want to buy these items from the South. Are furniture and towels not available in the TRNC?

Do you always drink turkish coffee and turkish liquor when you are in trnc????



We have beds from Ikea at home and want the same in the apartment as we know it works. Also there is delivery time for beds in TRNC and we should prefer to have the beds more or less the same day we arrive.

Sorry, I was just trying to say that in my opinion if someone chooses to live in a country then perhaps they should support the country they live in.



Just my 10 bob's worth, sorry I spoke.

.............especially when the country they choose to shop in tries to make it so awkward and difficult for people to live in the country they chose to live in.



And yes, when I am in TRNC I drink Efes, and Cankaya or Kavak. I also use Ercan not Larnaca or Paphos.

But I am NOT telling this to people living in the UK.



I was merely expressing MY opinion on shopping in the RoC, I dont personally agree with it if you live in TRNC, especially, as I said, when the RoC makes it so awkward and difficult for you to live in TRNC (eg the Orams case)



As I said, I was expressing MY opinion, or is that not allowed in your book?

Mermaid Fabrics

The Curtain Shop

The Wednesday market



I picked up 3 bath sheets from 'The White company' on a market stall for 25tl last month (Heaven knows how they ended up in TRNC) But all the other stuff he did was excellent quality.

Dusterbruce, if the merchants in that country are taking advantage of the isolations as they get 100% profit -at least- from anything they sell, and you ask me to support the economy they are in, then my answer is no! The stakeholders in TRNC economy should know how to treat their customers, how to earn less money per unit, which they slowly started to do so. An example; a coupleof months ago, I went to the mobile phone store next to Yenisehir Police Station to buy a Nokia 1600, and they gave me the price 250TL, with a very terrible attitude. Then I headed to another shop close to Girne Gate, and the price was 160 TL. The price of this mobile phone was 130 TL in hepsiburada.com, Turkey, and the price in thesouth was 55. I am not able to find an explanation to this situation. Can you? (apart from the tax story)

You choose where you want to shop and I will do the same.

But did you not do your research before you came to TRNC?

What would you do if you could not shop on the dark side?
