My personal effects/goods arrived in Famagusta by road two weeks ago this Wednesday, I am desperate for them as you can imagine, I have nothing much and am living on sunbeds in the lounge, no TV and hardly any cooking equipment. I keep phoning Dolphin but they say "maybe today maybe tomorrow,", I know I have some new goods and more than happy to pay the tax for them, can anyone tell me does It usually take this long to clear your goods by the customs, it is really getting to me now

I'm baffled how they arrived by road, didn't they come on a ship?

I take it that your goods aren't in a container, because they would then bring it to your home and do the checks as it is opened up.

Why not go to the customs house and ask them? We had stuff sent from Turkey by kargo and we just went to the customs house in Lefkoşa to retrieve it. They were very helpful and even stored it for us for three weeks at no charge.
