How can I prevent the TRNC passport control from stamping your document upon arrival?

It is very important not to lose vigilance when approaching a customs officer. Do not hand over your passport until you have been given a special entry stamp form. Usually, the forms are located near the officer on your side. If there are no forms available, you need to ask for them. Note that if you give your passport to the customs officer without a form, they will still stamp it. If you are not provided with a form, ask to have your boarding pass stamped - that is also possible.

There is another option. You can prepare in advance for the trip and print a blank form before departure, then simply present it at passport control upon arrival.
