A great point you have raised there and a nice blog too!

No, not officially recognised by anywhere other than Turkey but the stamps can still be used officially as all post from the north of Cyprus (Turkish Cypriot stamps) is dispatched via mainland Turkey (Mersin) and then onwards from there.

Post sent from the occupied Turkish areas cannot be dispatched directly into the South of Cyprus - again, all post has to go via Mersin in Turkey and unfortnately is not guaranteed to reach the recipient.

Neither can post from the south of Cyprus (Republic of Cyprus) be mailed directly to the north of Cyprus - it still has to go via Turkey and often gets mislaid too, as we have found from personal experience...

Only mail posted from the Republic of Cyprus can be posted in a direct manner by airmail....

It's very confusing for those who are not aware of the division of our island of Cypru.

We're hoping to get our hands on the latest north Cyprus stamps issues very soon and put them on Cyprus Stamps website.

Keep up this great blog!
