Contact us for our NCI-recommended list of lawyers who are all qualified to give you advice on residency in North Cyprus. If you are planning to visit your North Cyprus property each time for 90 days or less on each visit and you do not intend to work in the country, you only need the 90 day visitor visa which is given automatically to those of all nationalities upon arrival at Ercan international airport (accessible via Turkey for all nationalities) or at the border to the TRNC if you are crossing from the South of Cyprus (please note that to enter the South of Cyprus you need to be a European, American or Commonwealth Citizen or hold a Schengen visa).
However, if you are planning to spend regular periods of time longer than 90 days in the TRNC you must apply for a temporary residency permit. This is extremely easy to obtain for all nationalities upon the deposit of sufficient funds in a local North Cyprus bank account to support you for one year and subject to a health check up and blood tests. Please note that temporary residency does not entitle you to work or open a business and if you wish to obtain a work visa or open a company, you should seek legal advice.
