Re: Is the flu jab still available at the General?

Your question was too precise. This is Cyprus & as I'm sure you know, nothing's the same from one day yo the next! I suggest you go to the GH & ask them.

Re: Call to increase flights to Pafos International airport

I read that ex Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith is calling for TC's in the UK (& other nationalities I'd guess) to be able to fly direct to Ercan in the north.

Re: Thank you to HMG

No doubt I'll find it deposited in my account, but I do think they should either increase it or just stop it completely before all it will buy is a bottle of cheap gin; Oh so that's all it does now my daughter tells me!! :lol:

Re: From Miliou to Theletra

Last week toms were 2.69 kilo, today 0.99 which is my cue to make my own tomato & basil soup. I will freeze some for those cold winter days that are approaching.

I have one atorvastatin tablet each day, and the Pharmacy give me 2 boxes of 14.. But on my monthly prescription it does say 2 boxes..

Re: Why things sometimes don't work...

We have a non-return flap fitted on the outside wall at the end of the pipe from the extractor. We covered the inside of this with steel mesh to prevent insects from getting in and it's worked a treat. OH has just removed the extractor before fitting a new one and there's no sign of creepy crawlies...

Re: Procedures adopted by Solictors and Agents here in Cyprus

I have replied by private message to your question about lawyers fees. Certainly transactions can be in sterling if both parties agree, though the deposit may have to be in euros if the agent or lawyer doesn't have a sterling a/c. I made use of direct transfers of funds when both selling & buying. I...

Re: No More Trips to the North ?

What would be the problem for someone with a residence permit (Yellow slip) flying into Ercan and then wishing to cross to the Republic? As far as I can see, not a problem. You would be entering Cyprus through an Illegal port of entry.. and as a non EU citizen, you will be refused entry into the re...

Flying to Turkey and returning to Ercan could potentially be a problem for some.
Why, who's to know where you've been when in the north? The Republic police on the green line crossing won't be asking what you did whilst in the north!

Re: No More Trips to the North ?

Why? You won't be entering the country from the North. You are already in the country. If you read the full report, you'll read that "Third-country nationals on temporary resident visas, like domestic workers, have also been banned from going north." https://cyprus-mail.com/2019/11/29/akel-says-gov...
