Scooter is on a distinguished road
Moving from Southern Cyprus to Mainland Turkey

My husband and I wish to move to the Fethiye region from Sth Cyprus (Greek region). We have 2 dogs and 5 cats currently and are seeking homes for some of the cats, but hey, who knows? They might all come with us.

Would anyone know the best way of transporting our goods from Sthn Cyprus through to Northern Cyprus and then Turkey. We don't think there are any container ships going that way. We are very concerned about the transport costs, the best way to move not only the goods but the pets as well. Taking in our small car (via ferry) is another issue and customs taxes are yet another question.

So to summarise, can you help on any of the following:

Best transport / trucking from Sth Cyprus to Turkey or shipping?

Getting pets into Turkey (they will all have passports)

Getting the car in, even if only for a short time

Taxes on our goods. My residency visa is 2 years old but didnt stay after I got it, my husband still needs to get his.

Many thanks in advance.

The laws regarding residency have recently changed, actually they have undergone changes almost every year. Due to these recent changes you can only apply for a 1 year permit, and you have to reapply every year. If you are under 65 years old you both need to have private health insurance (not emergency cover but full cover, this can be expensive). I would ask other members about the costs involved. You also need to have savings in the bank as well as an address. I'm not sure you can import goods until you have a residency permit? You'll have to check this.

I urge you to check the latest RP regulations before you make any firm plans, this might effect your decision.

Just a heads up.

If you don't mind me asking... why?

I can think of a gazillion reasons why I wouldn't move from the Eurozone to TR, but I'm curious as to your rationale.
