    What is the purpose of your trip to north Cyprus, and what documents do you have? – Crazydre Oct 24 '20 at 8:46

    When are you planning to travel? Do you have a visa to enter Northern Cyprus? mfa.gov.ct.tr/consular-info/visa-regulations – Traveller Oct 24 '20 at 9:52

    A transit visa will not work, because the Republic of Cyprus (where Larnaca is) does not recognize the Northern Cyprus government, which it views as an illegal Turkish creation. I think you would need a regular visa of some sort for Cyprus, and you can then cross into Northern Cyprus through certain checkpoints. Expect unpleasant questions. You would do much better to fly to Northern Cyprus via Turkey. – Andrew Lazarus Oct 28 '20 at 6:08
