You get a feeling they would like to lock you up, but threre is fuck all they can do about it. You are free to land anywhere in Cyprus you like. You will have no problem what so ever. I suggest you book yourself to a nice hotel and enjoy the better delights of the TRNC before you go down south and get fleeced by the ungreatful bunch.
Enjoy your stay in Cyprus my friend and come back to the forum and tell us your experience of both sides of the devide. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Dear friend,
Thank you for your suggestions. I will absolutely tour the TRNC after I have stayed few days in Larnaca.

I was just wondering because I arrive late evening and propably I should take take taxi to the bprder crossing and then walk through.

I did research that there is buses leaving from Filoxenia (Cyprus Hotel and Catering Institute) to the Larnaca
0:00 and 0215 KAPNOS BUSES - Tel.: 77 77 14 77

Do you think that two hours is enought for me to get to the bus stop / other side of the green line? Does the border crossing usually take for long time?

What border crossing should I ask the cab driver to take me?


Thank you so much for everyones help.

Lokmaci is the best one. It is about 45 minutes to one hour from the airport. You walk across in 10 minutes. 2 hours is plenty of time to get to the bus stop. There are plenty of taxis outside Ercan airport. I can't believe that at this day and age you are not allowed to take a Taxi from the airport and go to your destination where ever it may be both north and south. We live in hope that there will be no border soon.


I am not sure about the bus operation times. May be a night u can stay in Saray Hotel which is so close the Lokmaci check point and next morning u can walk across in 10 munites as YFred says. ıt will be much better with my opinion. Take a taxi from airport to Saray Hotel and have a nice holiady.
here is the link for Saray Hotel
http://www.northcyprus.net/hotelindex.php?hotel_id=84

for single bed and breakfast they charge 60 Euro.

by coming from Amsterdam-Istanbul-ERCAN u will not have any problem.Every year i goto IBC Amsterdam i never had any problem.On my ticket also says ERCAN-ISTANBUL-AMSTERDAM



Also there is a taxi services from North to Larnaca too . This sunday i went to Larnaca airport from North Cyprus. I send u PM for his phone number.He can collect u from airport to Larnaca.

According to the laws of the Republic of Cyprus, it is illegal to enter the island by any of the ports in the north, including Ercan/Tymbou airport. However, the Republic of Cyprus is now a member of the EU and the EU acquis concerning free movement of people takes priority over national law. This explains why, if you are an EU passport holder, you can arrive at Ercan airport and cross with impunity to the south, despite this technically being illegal. I personally as a permanent resident of the RoC respect and obey all the laws of this country so do not travel from the ports in the north, but this is a personal decision.

There are two different bus services to Larnaca from Nicosia. The long established bus service between the two city centres is operated by the Green Bus Company, and is a daytime only operation with about six journeys per day. It leaves from Markou Drakou Square in Nicosia, which is about 10 minutes walk away from the Ledra Street pedestrian crossing point. This bus will take you to the very centre of Larnaca for about five euro, but the last departure from Nicosa is I think at 1600.

The buses that run until late in the evening are the new airport shuttle buses. These do not depart from Nicosia city centre, but from near the International Conference Centre in Aglantzias Street. They run directly to Laranca airport and do not take you to the centre of Laranca. If you wanted to make your journey in this way, you would have to get a taxi in Nicosia to the departure point and another taxi from Larnaca airport to Larnaca town.

I hope this information helps a little.

By the way, I believe that there is no public transport from Ercan airport.
