It is far easier just to pay the duty as it saves problems later. However as the rules seem to be subject to change once the Cyprus government comes into line with EU laws duty should be abolished anyway.
At the moment the whole thing is very much a muddle and no one really seems to have a definitive answer.
Thx again Veronica, clarification of sorts eh! looking at the forum use you seem to be very knowledgable around Cypriot affairs! don't suppose, bearing in mind we are dealing with the Cypriot pace of things, that any timescales are known re: importation etc rule changes?
NB: Any info on the ferry question per chance?
