SERVICES TO CYPRIOT NATIONALS
Apart from the services listed above, the following services are offered specifically to Cypriot nationals residing in Denmark or Iceland:
♦Issuing of a Passport and Identity Card
Following the introduction recently of new, biometric type passports and identity cards of the Republic, this service is currently available only from select Missions of Cyprus abroad, with the closest being the Embassies of the Republic of Cyprus in Berlin, Germany and Stockholm, Sweden. Therefore, Cypriot nationals wishing to apply for a new-replacement passport/identity card need to contact the Embassies above or one of the District Administration Offices in Cyprus (http://www.moi.gov.cy/moi/da/dadmin.nsf/) to make the necessary arrangements.
♦Issuing of a temporary Travel Document
This service is available to individuals who are not in possession of a valid passport and need to travel abroad urgently.
Procedure: An application is submitted to the Embassy on form M.9 (along with supporting documentation) and the Travel Document is issued locally, by the Embassy.
Fee: 150 DKK – payable upon submittal of the application.
Time needed: Issued during one working day.
♦Registering a child as a citizen of the Republic of Cyprus (Issuing of a Consular Birth Certificate)
This service is available in cases where a child is born either in Denmark or in Iceland to at least one Cypriot parent (both parents' consent is required).
Procedure: An application needs to be submitted on form M.121, along with the necessary documentation in support. This will then be forwarded by the Embassy to the competent department of the Ministry of Interior, in order for the child to be registered as a Cypriot citizen and for the Birth Certificate to be issued accordingly. This will then be sent to the Embassy for delivery to the applicant.
Fee: 213 DKK – payable upon submittal of the application.
Time needed: Anything between three and four months (from submittal of the application until the Birth Certificate is delivered)
In cases of emergency, Cypriots finding themselves in Denmark or Iceland may apply to receive a sum of money from the Embassy to cover their urgent needs, provided that a family member or friend of theirs in Cyprus visits the Accounts Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nicosia and deposits the equivalent amount to their credit.
