I could use some guidance from someone who has entered Cyprus in the North then traveled South
I am studying in Jordan and I plan on taking a trip to Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Cyprus and Egypt. I need to fly from South Cyprus to Egypt but I am taking a ferry from Turkey to Northern Cyprus. I have read kind of conflicting things about traveling from the North to the South that all kind of conclude that it can be done but are not very clear. Does anyone have accounts of when they did it recently?
I have done the reverse .... meaning i have gone from larnaca airport to got a taxi to nacosia and than another taxi to lefke north cyprus... had no issues. having said that i did travel with a british passport and they may have rules for non british traveling.
1st, because you are not European Union citizen, I believe you need to get in from South first. Because South Cyprus consider you as you entered the country in illegals way. There is no problem for EU citizens to come to North first, because their passports are not stamped , neither they are recorded at the entrence of South Cyprus. However non-eu citizens are recorded. For that reason you should get in from Larnaca first, then you can come to north, as far as I know..
2nd If you plan to go to South Cyprus make sure you don't get stamp on your passport at the North Cyprus, you need to fill a visa form and get stamped on it.

My girlfriend and I went horse riding in Papos and enjoyed bike riding in the mountains that are about 45 minutes from Paphos.I'm a kind of person that is always into deals web sites before going to any trip. I recall seeing <snip> offering 50%!d(MISSING)iscount for several hotels and destinations. The other things I enjoyed were the village and Famagusta bus tours; they were really interesting strongly recommended.
