Indeed he is, after all his RoC ID says so.

As for the young Australian I have this to say. Cyprus, both the free part and the occupied part, are a safe destination.
However the so called Ercan airport is not a recognized airport by the entire aviation industry. There is one only Cyprus, part of which is occupied by Turkey. The Turkish Cypriots are on the whole friendly and decent people who refer to the influx of thousands of Turks from Turkey as mountain people.

If you wish to visit Cyprus then it is prudent in doing so to enter the island legally through internationally recognized ports of entry.

On the other hand, let's face facts. The worst possible scenario is that the lady will be turned back. I actually tried to cross in 1990's - a time when things were far stricter - having traveled to the north of Cyprus from Turkey, and I was just sent packing with a flea in my ear.

I agree Tim, worst case scenario she will be denied entry, although this is unlikely. I've passed between north-south, on many occasions (using an Australian Passport).

Hun, if you're visiting a country, have the decency to arrive in that country legally. Simple as that. Larnaca and Paphos airports are legal and ercan is not not.

Probably she is considering the illegal airport because she found cheaper tickets to there, not because the occupied areas are her destination. If she doesn't mind to get stuck among illegal invaders, terrorism sponsors and terrorism targets, if she doesn't mind to commit a crime, then by all means she should try to save a few pennies and come to Cyprus through an illegal airport. Otherwise if she has any morals and she values her safety she should come to Cyprus through a proper, legal airport.

Really need honest and real response, so if you know certainly that would be great!

I think you’re a bit too young and inexperienced to be visiting a volatile country like Turkey… in fact the entire ME can be very dangerous for the inexperienced.

This is not a region to be taken lightly let alone for a girl travelling alone!

Go somewhere else where there's no unrest.

Hi All,
thank you all so much for your feedback!

In case you are wondering why,
i went and booked my tickets and yes the cheaper option was to fly into Ercan (little did i know the problems)
I have been to Turkey twice by myself and it has been wonderful!

I am staying with my partner in the north side of Cyprus, so it wouldn't be like i would be travelling to the south side of cyprus occasionally.
But i did think.. it something happened and i needed to get back to Australia and i came through the illegal side of cyprus that would be an issue, right?

If i was to change my flights then to fly into Larnaca, what would be the easiest route to get to the north border crossing??
Thank you all!

No. It's simple. You're a troll.

There isn't a 'north side'. There is a north, which is occupied - and if you are staying there with your 'partner' why didn't you ask him/her instead of going to all this 'trouble' to register to a forum and offload a number of well-known (and to you too since you have a partner in the occupied area) politically motivated terms and issues.
