The High Commission of the Republic of Cyprus informs that visas will not be granted to applicants with itineraries including illegal entries from ports and airports situated to the part of the Republic of Cyprus which is occupied by the Turkish troops since 1974.

Staying in Greek Cypriot owned hotels in the occupied areas, which are being illegally exploited, would put you at great risk of possible legal action on the part of the owners.

Travelers entering the Republic of Cyprus via the illegal/closed airports and ports (i.e. all the airports and ports in the occupied areas), are in breach of the international law of the Republic of Cyprus. Therefore, you are urged to travel via the recognized ports of entry, so as to avoid any possible problems (provided that a visa has been granted to you). The legal ports of entry into the Republic of Cyprus are the airports of Larnaca and Paphos and the ports of Larnaca, Limassol, Latsi and Paphos, which are situated in the area under the effective control of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus. Any entry into the territory of the Republic of Cyprus via any other port or airport in the area of Cyprus in which the Government of the Republic does not exercise effective control (Turkish occupied area) is illegal”.

Passport issuance applications must be submitted by the applicant in person at the High Commission of the Republic of Cyprus. Only holders of Cypriot ID can submit a passport application. All minors are eligible to hold a Cypriot ID since June 2012. In person submission of applications is required for the collection of the applicant's biometric information (photo, signature and finger prints) by a consular officer.

If the applicant is a minor both parents, with the minor, must be present at the High Commission of the Republic of Cyprus for the submission of the application.

Please note that the Consular Section of the Cyprus High Commission only authenticates signatures on documents and it does not review or approve the content of the documents.

Authentication of Signature:
Verification of signatures is done in person at the High Commission before a Consular officer. 

Certification of a Cypriot document as a true copy:
Please note that only documents emanating from the Republic of Cyprus can be certified as a true copy of the original. Please present the original document for inspection and a copy of it.

Certification of documents verified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus:
The signature of the certifying Officer(s) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus may be certified by the Consular Section of the High Commission. Please note that if the seal/signature to be legalized appears on a copied document, this will first need to be certified as a true and authentic copy in Cyprus before being presented at the High Commission.
