Entry after visit to Northern Cyprus

I have just read in a guide book that entry to Republic of Cyprus is prohibited to those who have a passport stamp from the northern side of the island.

As I flew in to Ercan in 2007, and do have the stamp, is this going to cause me a problem?

No, Not at all, I have North Cyprus residency stamps and have no problems.

I live in Paphos and flew to Istanbul from Ercan and back again last April and so my passport was stamped. I had no problem on my return.

I wonder if it is an old guide book?

Thank you ttoli and Trisha. That is reassuring and I hope all will be well when I go on Sunday.

The guide book is a 2010 version of Dorling Kindersley's Cyprus.

Thanks again.

Just returned after a lovely (not the weather, though!) break. No problems with the passport, but they didn't seem too interested anyway. Thanks again for the responses.
