I have an opportunity to travel to Cyprus but my problem is I know nothing about Cyprus. I'm a father of one, a lecturer in one private college of Education in Osun State. I just want to seek a greener pastures but would Cyprus be a great place to go? is going to Cyprus worth quiting my job for? Thinking of Furthering my education by opting for my PhD (well as a consolation) before I come back. my intention really is wanting to live a better life.

My friend, dont be deceived. North Cyprus has nothing to offer you. Take it or leave it. I'm 100%sure of what I'm saying. A word is enough for the wise. CHEERS

The truth is, I have not been outside nigeria b4 so I will not speak as if I have stepped my foot outside this country, .

But I have friends in different European countries and they keep saying it,

When u have a skill and u travel out, u wouldn't be among those shouting no work,

80% of those shouting no work in dis country. Many of them are unskilled,probably did yahoo yahoo b4 and money no gree show up again decided to travel out without any skill

God bless you for this. Look closely at all those shouting "nothing dey there. no work, blah blah blah...": they have NO SKILLS. Lizard in Naija can never be a crocodile in Europe.

You get same in some selected universities in Europe. Infact, some engage you as a teaching staff and pay you a salary as well.

Dear op,

I have come... allow me to open your eyes about T.R.N.C or North Cyprus.

1. If you can't speak Turkish, "You will Suffer" especially if you claim to have a job there. English is scarcely spoken there, so the only people who do are mostly foreigners.

2. The currency unit in Cyprus is the Turkish lira, and the maximum you will get paid is 2800-3000TL which is about 500usd assuming the exchange rate is 5.4tl- 1usd (and I am talking about the maximum wage) ...
Let's do a lil bit of economics, from that 3000TL at least 700TL will go for your rent and bills per month, at least 800TL for monthly feeding it could be more if you eat healthily and visit restaurants, you will definitely make calls to your family so at least 120TL monthly for international call and data package on Turkcell, other miscellaneous expenses I will chuck down to 400TL per month, it could be more it could be less, now you are left with 1000TL which is barely 200usd, that's what you get to send at the end of running your pay. Is it worth it?

3. Prepare for bouts of Racial profiling by the locals especially if you are not a student, a very common scenario in North Cyprus.

4. As much as Cyprus is a very beautiful island in General, You will be going to a globally disputed and illegal Island... put that in mind.

5. The sun there is on another level, it can roast you alive during summers (I experienced 46°c once) so if your job makes you work outside... May God protect your hussle.

6. You can't self sponsor your university tuition with the salary of your job there esp for a PHD program except you get a scholarship... it's impossible, why? Because you get paid in Liras while the tuition fees are usually in hard currency.

7. North Cyprus is like an Annex of Turkey, so expect a Turkish layout, not a European layout.

8. Everything is expensive there I.e Island price.

9. Most professional jobs are reserved for their nationals so your job is most likely going to be a blue collar job.

10. Flirt with a Cypriot lady and you are dead.

11. Expect a society that has settings which do not support integration.

12. Yahoo boys are very common, mostly Nigerians.

13. You will have to work very hard... three times the effort you do in Nigeria, oh I need to inform you of something called Mesai-overtime, that is where you will see work, Turkish people love work.

LOL. You're obviously very knowledgeable about Cyprus.

PLEASE explain your Number 10. cheesy

Its a small Island, so in every city in TRNC, there's that pattern where every one knows everyone...

So with the prejudice on black people that is present, if word gets around that "one black man is eying one of the local women" you may be jealously hunted down by the local men.

Thanks a lot for this prompt and valuable feedback. I have no plans to visit Cyprus but in white majority areas generally...that racial undertone is always there. Even in Arabian countries. I heard this same thing about Tunisian ladies when AfDB HQ was temporarily moved there because of Gbagbo / Ouattara crisis in Cote D'Ivoire.
