Embassies and Consulates in Southern Cyprus

Nowadays, people cross the border between Northern Cyprus and Southern Cyprus without any difficulties. However, non-EU citizens generally require a visa to enter the southern part of the island. Those of them living in Northern Cyprus can easily receive help from any embassy located in Southern Cyprus. All they have to do is to call the embassy or consulate and arrange an appointment. The consulate will make arrangements to provide assistance to resolve any existing issues. Usually, consulates come to Ledra Palace on the specified day. Ledra Palace is a famous place in Nicosia next to the Old City walls. There is also a checkpoint, where you can cross the border between North and South by car.
