While the political status of a destination, non-recognition, and tourists’ decision making research has turned considerable attention to the tourism economy in North Cyprus (N. Cyprus), there is no previous research that excludes the effect of the sequences related to the political status on the tourists’ visitation decision. Thus this paper attempts to study how the tourists’ visitation decision was being affected by the political non-recognition. In order to achieve this purpose, appropriate quantitative methods have been underpinned by the perspective of European tourists. The main findings revealed that although the political status of N. Cyprus has not been considered in the visitation decision, other agents such as; indirect flights, image of conflict and lack of diplomatic representative may discourage of such decision and subject to test the competitive advantages of such political non-recognition by eliminating the effect of these restricts.
