Crossing the UN Green Line in Nicosia, Cyprus: Any hassles?

Postby meneither » Sat Jun 25, 2005 5:18 pm


For my trip to Cyprus, I’d like to start with the northern part of the country, then move southward afterwards. My planned itinerary is as follows,

* Fly into Larnaca, then immediately take a bus to northern Nicosia (the Turkish part) by crossing the UN Green Line.
* Spend 2-3 days exploring northern Nicosia, Kyrenia and some other northern Cyprus towns. Will spend the nights there, too.
* Travel back to southern Nicosia (the Greek part), then check out the southern part of the country for a couple of days.
* Fly out from Larnaca.

Now my questions are,

1) Would I have any problem from either the Greek Cyprus or Turkish Cyprus authorities when crossing the UN Green Line into northern Nicosia
2) Would I have any problem from either of them when coming back to southern Nicosia from the North?

Some background information: I’m not of Greek or Turkish descent. I’ll travel on a Canadian passport. I, however, will be carrying some pieces of luggage with me when crossing the Line. Thanks for your help.

You wouldn't have no problem crossing from south to north or vice versa. Sounds like a good plan.
