For the issuance or renewal of passport to a minor, the relevant application, which can be found at the bottom of this page, has to be submitted at the District Administrations, the Citizens Service Centers and Service Centers (Post Offices). A fee of €45 must be paid upon the submission of the application.

The application must be signed by both parents, father and mother of the minor, before the authorized officer. In case one of the two parents is overseas, the application has to be submitted and signed by the parent who is present accompanied with a written consent of the parent who is absent, which explicitly mentions that the consent is provided for the purpose of the issuance of a passport to his minor child. This consent has to be certified from the Consular Authority of the Republic. If the parents are divorced, then the application has to be submitted from the parent that has the guardianship and the parental responsibility of the minor, with the submission of the competent Court Order that confirms guardianship and parental responsibility.

During the application procedure, a duly trained and authorized officer captures the biometrics (photograph and fingerprints) as well the signature of the minor. In case the minor is below the age of twelve (12) during the submission of the application, the only biometric taken is his/her photograph.

In case the application has been submitted from a person who acquired the Cypriot Citizenship through naturalization or by registration and has not yet acquired an ID card, she/ he has to submit the following documents, together with the passport application:
  • The original birth certificate
  • The original naturalization certificate or registration
