Remember that Cyprus has rescued seaborne refugees who weren't destined for the island, but were found drifting off the coast.

Who knows where they move to after registration? Even if there are restrictions (are there) it would be difficult to police them, I guess.

Of course I have . If they are political refugees yes they must be taken in and cared for. , goes without saying or patronising .
If however they are in the country for economic reasons , or even escaping the law in their own country , of course they must be vetted and register . Otherwise how the blazes do we know who our neighbours are ?

You did not make any differentiation in your post.


I did not mean to patronize.

By definition anyone entering Cyprus other than through the recognised ports and using the correct procedure is classed as illegal.

Yes, they are entering a sovereign state, albeit illegaly occupied by an armed force controlled by another sovereign state through an illegal point of entry not controlled by the internationally recognised administration.

Interestingly my Cypriot in laws and several of my Cypriot neighbours, all of the Orthodox persuasion use 'Ercan' to visit Turkey for holidays and shopping, they drive to 'Ercan' park up and return loaded up with shopping. In so far as I know none have had goods confiscated or have been charged with anything upon return to RoC controlled Cyprus. Surprisingly all of my male Cypriot in laws in the 60/70 age group served in the NG in 1974 and the entire family lost their homes property and businesses. Three of the 'boys' were taken prisoner with two being helped to escape transportation or worse by a Turkish Cypriot policeman who knew the family and the other released from the Petrides Garage lock up Nicosia in a UN brokered program because we knew he was there. Personally if I were them and having survived 74 the last places I would want to be would be Turkish occupied Cyprus or Turkey whatever the savings on holidays or luxury goods.

I would imagine it would. However it would not include the many thousands who arrive via Larnaca and go directly north, thereby confusing (inflating) the much trumpeted tourist figures.

The area I reside is packed with visitors at the moment.
