    @Crazydre as I understand it one can cross from the Republic of Cyprus without passing through Turkey.

  • @Crazydre one could for example fly to Nicosia without passing through Turkey and then travel by land to Northern Cyprus.

Visa required, except for Holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours.
