Karpaz Gate Marina announces assistance for private yachts cruising near North Cyprus

Private yachts are now permitted to enter Karpaz Gate Marina and other Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) ports in an emergency or for urgent supplies. After lifting some of the COVID-19 restrictions, it now offers some assistance for private yachts cruising in the region, but under strict conditions.

Although the TRNC Ministry of Health has extended the ban of private boat arrivals until 1st November 2020, vessels requesting emergency asylum, fuel, water and/or food are now permitted to enter Karpaz Gate Marina and other TRNC ports. However, all those on board the boats are not allowed to come ashore or check in to the country.

The partial opening of Karpaz Gate Marina for the arrival of private boats ensures it can once again provide a haven for yachts in transit with urgent requirements. In addition to the premium technical and berthing services, an on-site fuel station is available for both Eurodiesel and Gasoline at significantly lower costs compared to other countries in the region.

Karpaz Gate Marina’s berthing services, restaurant and beach club facilities, as well as its extensive technical department and dry dock, are fully operational. The award-winning 5 Gold Anchor marina on the island’s Karpaz peninsula has implemented a number of precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all visitors, clients and staff including high standards of disinfection and hygiene, as well as special signage to promote cleanliness and social distancing.

Currently, both foreigners and TRNC citizens are permitted to enter the TRNC through Ercan Airport following the end of flight restrictions. Passengers need to abide by the latest requirements for their country, depending on its designation in category A (safest), B or C (highest risk). The latest quarantine conditions and information about the categories of countries is available from the TRNC Ministry of Health and is constantly reviewed by local authorities according to the latest information from the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The TRNC has so far seen very few cases of COVID-19, with the government claiming a successful fight against the pandemic due to a phased and vigilant lockdown and timely decisions and measures to stem the spread of the virus.
