National Identity Cards

The Dutch national ID-cards are considered by the Republic of Cyprus to be valid travelling documents for the purpose of entry into the Republic of Cyprus, provided that they carry the nationality and photograph of the holder, as well as an expiry date.

However, Dutch authorities consider the Dutch national ID cards only to be valid for travelling in the Schengen area, of which Cyprus is not a member.

The Embassy of Cyprus therefore recommends that Dutch nationals use their passport when travelling to Cyprus.
