Access to northern parts of Cyprus. - The above is half true. You can access the occupied part of Cyprus, but it is illegal entering from Turkey. You can enter from checkpoints after entering legally fron Lanraca or Pafos international airports. If you enter from the illegal airport that is located in the occupied part of Cyprus and then try to visit the free part of Cyprus, you will be arrested. Unfortunatly the invasion of Turkey in Cyprus caused such problems and we hope one day all this will be solved.
