Rules for importing commercial vehicles

Updated: 2 months ago

Is it possible to import a commercial vehicle with Russian license plates to Northern Cyprus and work, providing transportation services to construction companies?

The rules for importing commercial vehicles to Northern Cyprus are the same, regardless of whether they have Russian or other license plates.

Rules for importing commercial vehicles:

  1. The commercial vehicle must have a right-hand drive. Left-hand drive is prohibited for commercial vehicles.
  2. The imported commercial vehicle must not be older than 12 years. It is even better if the vehicle is not older than 8 years, as the customs clearance cost for vehicles older than this age is significantly higher.

If the vehicle meets the specified criteria, it will need to be registered in Northern Cyprus, meaning it should be assigned local license plates. Only after that, you can peacefully work with construction companies and engage in cargo transportation.
