  The check point at Ledras Nicosia
by greekcypriot

There are a number of crossing points where one can pass from the south to the north.

These are the following:

Ledra Palace (in Nicosia - only for pedestrians)
Agios Nikolaos (near Famagusta)
Astromeritis (near Morphou)
Agios Dometios (in Nicosia)
Pyla (near Larnaca)

Upon reaching the Turkish check point, get a temporary insurance if you have a car.
Then you will be given a "visa form" which you will have to fill it out and you will give it to the man in charge there. Be careful not to loose the visa slip. It will be necessary to show when you leave.

European citizens may cross the border regardless of point of entry to Cyprus, however if not a EU citizen and if you are from an eastern country, you are likely to be arrested or have to pay a fine by the Cypriot authorities if you have entered via a North Cypriot airport or harbour.
