Re: How to register a mobile phone?

Might still be worth trying the link if you ever brought the phone here before; I just (out of curiosity) tried it again, putting in the IMEI no. and my UK phone no. ( last 10 digits only ) and it gave the following - "SONUÇ: Kullanıma açık IMEI (Kayıtlı IMEI. IMEI herhangi bir abone numarası i...

Re: How to register a mobile phone?

"I have a new Telsim mobile number...." Is it a new (to TRNC) phone , or just a new sim card/number bought in TRNC and put in an 'old' phone? Have a look at this and scroll down to "Editor's Note" at the bottom. This article is oldish (Jan 2017) but might help as to whether your ...

Re: Safe box/vault wanted

If you mean small "home" safes like these, two possibilities spring to mind - Stormax and China Bazaar. They both have branches east and west of Girne, but I would think several of the DIY/yapis would also stock similar.

Re: Apartment maintenance charges

Hi, Karsiyaka, 40 two-bedroom apartments on site with communal pool, £500 per year - this covers normal costs and allows gradual increase in "nest egg" for unexpected/emergency costs and/or general improvements. A friend has just bought an apartment in Catalkoy (Sea Vista); I'm not sure of...

Re: Is it 30 or 90

Thanks for that; we've been coming since 2011, and since 2015, we've been coming twice a year for 6-7 weeks each time so it was a little worrying as the powers-that-be appear to now be tightening up... :|

Re: Is it 30 or 90

1. My (humorous) remark re the EU referred to the section on the linked TRNC page - "For the citizens of the European Union: A valid EU passport or national identity card is required"... If/when we leave, we will not be citizens of the EU.... 2. "Due to the Cyprus dispute.... northern...

Re: Is it 30 or 90

I've had a look, but I can't seem to find any reference to a 30 day limit; according to this TRNC official page "...authorized to issue a maximum of 90 days..." (my underline), while Wiki again states "up to 90 days" - reference is made to "...Visitors given less than 90 day...

Re: Is it 30 or 90

Having now owned a property for 3 years, I am now going to apply for a TRNC licence. As to why this is now necessary, all I can suggest is that - "Hey, this is Cyprus..!" and that the government (or at least a newly appointed official) has decided that (in this instance) a long-established...

Sorry; that's no excuse - I live in the UK, but I still look in every day even if I don't post..... :lol:
