Contrary to popular belief, to visit the island
Cyprus needs a long and time-consuming visa processing, come here very very easy. And Northern Cyprus, in particular, is generally visa-free state!
Here there is one of the easiest visa regimes among the Mediterranean countries, a very soft migration policy and simple legalization of foreign citizens, which attracts an increasing number of our compatriots and Europeans. That is why North Cyprus is such a popular destination for real estate and leisure. Just because there are no more countries where it is so easy to get settled and so easy to live as here!
Today there are 3 active airports throughout Cyprus:
Nicosia (Ercan), Larnaca (Larnaca),
And the airport in Paphos (Paphos), where cheap flights fly (low cost).
Up to 10 regular direct flights from various cities of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus are carried to Larnaca airport. However, you need to issue a pro-visa. This can be done within 1 day absolutely free of charge on the website of the Consulate of Southern Cyprus. Having a "printed" Schengen visa is also suitable. In both cases, you will receive the right to stay on the island for 90 days.
If you decide to fly to Northern Cyprus via Ercan Airport, you will also receive a tourist visa free of charge directly at the airport upon arrival. If you wish, you can put a stamp on the insert, and not in the passport.
Important rule! You must fly from the same airport, which flew! When crossing the border of Southern and Northern Cyprus, which is quite conditional to the word, you will not get any marks in your passport and take it a maximum of 5 minutes. If you cross it by car, you will need to take out insurance for 25 euros (per month).
Keep in mind that counting the days of stay on the island (90 days in total are valid) starts from the moment you are at the airport of Larnaca, and crossing the border between North and South Cyprus will not increase the number of these days. However, if you arrived at the airport of Northern Cyprus, you can extend your stay for 1-3 months. when crossing the border with the south.
