General Information

Based on the provisions of the Civil Registry Law, the Civil Registry and Migration Department (CRMD) is responsible for the issuance of passports to Cypriot citizens.

Hide details for Application for replacement of a passport due to loss or theft or wearApplication for replacement of a passport due to loss or theft or wear
For the replacement of passport due to loss or theft or wear, the citizen has to submit the relevant application which can be found at the bottom of this page. Applications are submitted at the District Administrations, the Citizens Service Centers and Service Centers (Post Offices).

In case where you lost your passport or it has been stolen, you should report it immediately at any Police station and then make a Affidavit at the Court therefore. Both documents have to be submitted along with the application for the issuance of a new passport.

During the application procedure, a duly trained and authorized officer captures the biometrics (photograph and fingerprints) as well as the signature from the citizen.

In addition, for the submission of the application the citizen should pay the fees foreseen under the relevant law, which are double the fees in place for the issuance or renewal of a passport. Hence the fees for the first-time replacement are €140 for adults and €90 for minors.

Please note that in case of a loss or theft for second or more times, the fees payable are double the previous time.
