Turkey Passport shock

Turkey Passport shock

January 21

Following the report that major investments have been made in switching TRNC passports to the new e-passport system, many people complained that this money was not well spent, as only Turkey recognises the TRNC passport.

Today however, in a startling development, a TRNC citizen took the 8am flight from Ercan to Ankara but was held by police on their arrival at the Ankara airport.

This event has now raised serious questions as to whether or not Turkey recognises the new e-passports.
