About the Island

The political landscape and what it means for you

First things first – You have read and heard about Cyprus being one of the most popular IVF destinations worldwide and yet the political landscape sounds like a maze. There is the Republic of Cyprus and then the northern part of Cyprus, so what’s the difference and how does that affect your treatment options and time in Cyprus? Read on to find the answers!

Cyprus, a beautiful island situated at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa, is divided into two main regions: the Republic of Cyprus and the Turkish Republic of Cyprus (TRNC or North Cyprus). The Republic of Cyprus, which is internationally recognised, comprises the southern two-thirds of the island, while North Cyprus governs the northern third. 

The political division of Cyprus has given rise to two distinct environments for fertility treatment, each with its own unique advantages and considerations. While the Republic offers a comprehensive range of treatment options, North Cyprus provides more personalised and affordable care that has earned itself a global reputation, particularly in the past decade.

Both sides of the island boast experienced and dedicated fertility specialists so regardless of your choice, you’ll benefit from experienced professionals and comprehensive care. Plus, if you’re seeking a holistic experience that combines fertility treatment with a vacation, Cyprus has something to offer every traveler. From sun-kissed beaches and ancient ruins to vibrant cities and beautiful villages, Cyprus is a destination that will captivate your senses. 

Last but not least, you can stay on one side of the island and have your fertility treatment on the other by crossing through one of the border gates, as long as you are not subject to visa restrictions on either side.
