Who told you that when you are denied Transit visa you cant enroll for OKTB?

Nobody says that here on this particular THREAD.

Visa and OKTB are two different things that are not related to each other. Visa is issued by the legally authorized embassy after considering your application and other things; the embassy have the right to issue you a visa or deny you a visa even you pay the tuition fee.....they decide who enters their country.

Globally, beign issued a visa by the embassy does not gurantee entry to the country. A visa allow the bearer to travel legally to a foreign country for whatever purposes. The immigration at port of entry determines who enters the country, length of stay and other related stuffs.

OKTB is not a visa but just a service and comes in form of a code on the Ticket not as a sticker on passport and may allow the bearer to board the specific airline. The immigration will determine if such person enters or not.

After you have paid your fees, each university sends details of students that paid to Turkish embassy of their country. The students can check the embassy website and apply for the visa following the procedure stated on the website. Currently, the application for Turkish transit visa can only be submitted physically at the embassy in Abuja for those applying from Nigeria; although a pre-visa must be done online before submitting all the required documentation. Visit the embassy webpage for further directions and updates.

You can also decide based on your personal choice to travel by OKTB. Take note; OKTB is only allowed by Turkish Airline and the traveller that will use this service must adhere to some rules. Most importantly, a return-ticket is required considering the last policy before the pandemic. The traveller must have all the original document like WEAC or NECO for undergraduate while graduate student should have their bachelor degree/polytechnic diploma.

Why people used OKTB?:

some that were denied the Transit visa have made use of OKTB succesfully. Also, some applicant dont have the time and energy to spend at the embassy, hence, just go for OKTB.

So as a student you should decide yourself what you want. Take note, none (visa or OKTB) is 100% guranteed that the bearer will enter the country.

Best wishes as you make your decision.

Good day, Sir and well done.


Please, how is the medical field in North Cyprus, do they teach in English for Masters?

Also, what countries are easy to migrate to, from there, after studies?

Good day,

If you mean fields like nursing and pharmacy, medical biotechnology and other medical sciences then, then they are taught in English. Although few universities offer those at graduate level.

If you mean medicine, only two universities for now offer medicine related master program and quite expensive. for instance undergrad medicine per year cost nearly 20,000$ while no school offers master’s degree in medicine and surgery in TRNC for now. Except master in program like health care management that is relatively cheaper.

For medicine and graduate program in medicine I will encourage you to look towards southern America and Caribbean countries they often offer cheaper medical programs and some of these programs align with PLAB and USLME.

Regarding countries that are easy to migrate to after studies; I don’t know what the term easy means in this regard. However, various graduates have migrated to various countries (developed, developing and underdeveloped) after completing their education either immediately or after sometime. We have graduates that have migrated to Kenya, Botswana, Nigeria, China, UK, USA, Tanzania, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Sudan and Jamaica etc. I think migration depends on where you are migrating largely; if you meet the requirements there embassy to submit your application. One thing I notice is that visa processing seems faster from this region compare to some African countries.

Best wishes

Thanks, I actually meant fields like medical biotechnology and nursing. My challenge might be legalization at the ministries, went that route once and it was really stressful

If you don't mind me asking, what's the likely range of fees for masters in any of these fields?

You can come to Cyprus from First week of September just like any other students since university starts towards end of September...so no need coming in August by then we are still in summer period.

You may be able to do the OKTB anywhere but I have only done that for my students from Abuja, Dubai and UK for legal resident in those countries. I think it will depend if Turkish airline offer such service from there as you can only use OKTB with Turkish airline.

Wip7, please I have a question. A friend of mine who trades forex and earns not less than $1000 is planning to go to CIU for school by February and he plans on continuing his trade while there. My question is, is forex trading legal there? Will the banks become suspicious if he earns that amount per day into his bank account or is it fully legalized?

My question is, is forex trading legal there? Will the banks become suspicious if he earns that amount per day into his bank account or is it fully legalized?

First, anything like yahoo-yahoo and related scams are illegal in Cyprus. Meanwhile, there are numbers of fraudulent people that soil the names of their countries that are into those illegal things in Cyprus and many have been caught, jailed and deported; while some are still going to be caught real soon.


As far as the world is concerned, Forex is not illegal and anybody can trade that in Cyprus provided is the real FOREX. To be specific about your friend, for him to earn 1000$ from forex daily (considering my business experience and investment portfolio); the friend will have at least 40,000$ in his trading account. Also, why would the bank have issues with him? since earnings and trading money is not in the bank but its in the trading account......the trading accounts are not located in the banks so if he earns 30,000$ per month he can always leave it in his trading account or withdraw the ones he needs.

I own e-commerce websites (5 of them now) and sometime we generate sales of more than 30,000$ a month, my profits are all in my credit card processor account and I often withdraw anytime I want directly into my bank accounts, banks has never asked and if they do, I have verified websites and registered company documents and verified biz investment portfolio to show for earnings from my sales.

So the same applies to any legal business like FOREX.......so if your friend earns that much a day, even if bank ask, his real trading account balance and trading earnings will be a proof to his business.



Actually, in Cyprus there are Forex trading stores I have seen more than 10 located in Girne and some in lefkosia where CIU is located ...................

And again I love football very much and I will love to meet clubs over there speak to them and become an agent that can bring in African players for the clubs there.

From the list of universities you mentioned in your earlier post; those universities are located in south Cyprus.

You have no business with Turkish embassy unless you are heading to North Cyprus and OKTB does not work for south Cyprus.

After payment of tuition fee to the university and meet all the requirements in terms of documents; the university will submit your visa application to the migration department and when approved, you can fly. South Cyprus has mimimum cash amount student must have with them upon arrival which ranges 1500-2000 euros, Your university will inform you of exact amount.


The commonly used airline from Nigeria to south Cyprus is emirate airline and you will need to present your visa approval letter (sent by the Cyprus migration ministry after payment of tuition fee) to them before you can board.

Please I have few questions
I just got my unconditional acceptance letter some weeks back and I’m going to pay my tuition fee this week into near East university, my first question is.
When I get my unconditional acceptance letter , do I head to the embassy in Abuja to ask for the next steps or is the next step something you can tell me here.
Secondly how long is the appointment duration as to the date of your appointment like do you book it this week and your appointment is next week ?
Thirdly the national airport in Nigeria isn’t open yet, but the school would provide an online platform to have lectures will it be possible to come to Cyprus and continue classes in person despite the fact that you have started as an online student or would it be possible.
