this is a question for everybody who has entered Cyprus as a tourist before:
If you have immigration stamps from the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus" in your passport, you won´t be allowed into the Republic of Cyprus, i.e. the islands southern (Greek) part.
How meticulously will the Greek Cypriot immigration officers check passports for this Cain´s mark? After all, a passport can have more than 30 pages. Will they find it? What if you take out the page in question? Will they notice the missing page?
So, dear tourists, how thoroughly did they scan YOUR passport?

Well, I know taking pages out of the passport is illegal (but so is speeding ), I was wondering whether they´d notice it by counting the pages.
Anyway, I just found out that the Northern Cypriot immigration officers will also stamp a separate piece of paper, and exit stamps from suspicious Turkish harbours won´t be a problem because Germans don´t need the passport when travelling into or out of Turkey.
P.S.: Makes you wonder which are the bad guys in this conflict, this practice reminds me of those Arab dumbasses barring entry into their country if you have Israeli stamps in your passport...
