03How to get there

Northern Cyprus has the only Ercan airport, but all flights to and from it are operated only from Turkey: from Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya, Izmir and Adana. From the airport to the capital of Northern Cyprus Nicosia half an hour drive. You can also get to Kyrenia by catamaran from Turkish Alanya in about 2.5 hours.

In Turkey, there is the only thing embassy in the whole world, so a visa is not needed to visit the country. At the entrance to this partially recognized state, you will need to put a special stamp – it is placed both in the passport and on a separate form.

It is better to put the entry stamp on a separate leaflet: the authorities of the Republic of Cyprus consider visiting Northern Cyprus a violation of immigration law, so it is better to refrain from any marks on visiting a partially recognized country in your passport, otherwise it may later become difficult to obtain a Schengen visa.

Please note: according to the official statement of the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, citizens of the Russian Federation can enter the territory of the UK only through the Republic of Cyprus: you must first come to the Republic of Cyprus without violating visa requirements, then, through special checkpoints, if you have a passport, you can visit the UK for a period not exceeding 90 days.

In practice, there are no problems visiting Turkey from Northern Cyprus. Just do not forget that you do not need to put any notes on visiting the UK in your passport: the local visa is put on separate forms.
