Don't forget, if you need to renew a child's uk passport in Nicosia you will be asked for a school certificate. Something we did'nt know before till we got there!!!!!!!!

If you want to renew a UK passport in Cyprus before the deadline, simply download the forms, complete them and send them with photos/old passport or any other documentation required by registered post to the High Commission in Lefkosia.

There is no need to drive to Lefkosia and join a queue, or to pay any office to process it for you.

To send the package registered, with proof of receipt, will cost you 3 euros. Same amount for it to be sent back the same way.

You can also download a credit card payment slip; they then phone you for the authorisation code.

you just have to have a european id card it doesn't matter where you come from. I know this by police offices. they do not check you citizenship as you have a european certificate in your hands therefore you can pass through

I think only if you are a Cypriot you can travel with your ID card. If you have British on it you cannot. But best to check.

A ten year Cypriot passport just cost me 42.72 euros. Applied for and received within a week via the Larnaca citizens advice centre.

yes that's true, you can travel anywhere in the Europe with a european id card. but of course you have to have one. I know that most British people do not have an id card.

There is a lady in Paphos that can arrange your passport renewal. Her name is Gweny. Email me for her number if you want.

Its not cheap but its all done for you. Also its best you get it renewed before June too.
