Default SIM in Cyprus - 17-04-2013, 15:45

What's the situation for a foreigner buy a prepaid SIM in Cyprus. Anything one should think of?

I'm referring to southern Cyprus, not the occupied part.

As of 2010 (my last visit to this wonderful island) it was really easy to get a SIM-card. Every corner shop has starter-packs, which do not need any further activation.

If you plan to visit Cyprus more often, I guess its better to choose Cytavoda/Vodafone, as the card remains valid for 1 year w/o recharging, whereas their only competitor (Areeba or similar?) expires after 30 days.

As far as the Southern-Cypriot's version (which the EU adapted) is concerned, the Northern part is "occupied" - however I advise you to study some history books to see what led to those unfortnate events to get a complete picture

Totally off topic, but I'm very much aware of the background. I was there.
There are reasons why not one single country has accepted the Turkish occupation of the nothern part. And it has nothing whatsoever to do with "EU adapted". It's world wide.

PS Somebody moved my question from the Asian part of the forum to Europe, although Cyprus is in Asia.

Geographically it looks like Asia, but some parties count it as in Europe and some as in Asia, so there is some ambiguity.

It is definitely in the EU however.

It wasn't me that moved it, but I can see why.
