Order no. 12 Travelling to the North Side of the Island


Following the coup in Turkey, it was identified that the current ‘Cyprus Cascade’ system still falls short of accounting for people who elect to travel to the North side of the island where Cypriot mobile phones do not receive a signal.

It was previously agreed that there was a requirement to develop a baseline system that could accurately record details for all military and civilian personnel which would ensure that in the event of a future incident, all personnel could be reached and given up to date advice on how to best safe guard themselves and their families.

As such, personnel at RAF Akrotiri intending to take leave (even over weekend periods) outside of the Republic of Cyprus  ( To the North side of the Island)  are to ensure they complete one of the following 2 options:

Option 1 Personnel are to submit leave on JPA to allow a trawl to easily identify who is where (if the visit is over a weekend, JPA will not deduct from your ILA).

If the individual does not have a mobile phone that is serviceable in the North, contact details for their hotel are to be annotated along with details of their room number.  The booking details should also be left with an appointed colleague in their section who would be able to offer the Duty Clk additional information if required.

In order to allow a subsequent manning trawl to effectively identify who is in the North, personnel should populate JPA as follows:

Option 2 In the event of an ad hoc visit where an individual will not be able to populate JPA, personnel are to email the PSF Duty Clerk on giving their Service Number, Rank, Name, dates and location of their visit as well as working contact details (phone and email address).

Failure to complete one of these 2 options could potentially put personnel and their dependants at risk, and disciplinary action will be taken against those personnel who fail to comply with the above.
