If you are a UK citizen currently residing in Cyprus, you can apply for a new passport, which is actually taken care of in Madrid, Spain, rather than in Cyprus. How can you renew your UK passport if you reside in Cyprus?
Where to Submit UK Passport Applications from Cyprus
UK citizens who reside in Cyprus should submit their completed UK passport application to the following address for processing:
UK Regional Passport Processing Centre
Paseo de la Castellana 259D
In order to process your UK passport application, you must supply a mobile phone number so that the DHL courier service can contact you via SMS and give you a tracking number so that you can monitor when your passport will be delivered.
Adults and Children Passports
UK citizens who need to renew their UK passport should apply to the UK Regional Passport Processing Centre, where they will be issued full 10-year (adult) or 5-year (children) passports for the under 16s. Before you submit your application for a UK passport renewal, read the C1 form notes here as well as the C2 form notes here for guidance on how to complete your passport application.
Along with a completed CI or C2 form, you will need to provide the necessary supporting documentation such as 2 passport photos which have also been endorsed by the countersignatory, your current UK passport and a copy of both sides of your Cyprus ID card, if you have one. Do not forget to include your current address in Cyprus, so that your new UK passport is sent to the right address.
Check Applications Closely
Double check your application before submitting it to the UK regional passport processing centre so that your application is not delayed. If you have not provided all the necessary information, your application may be returned to you by courier, which will cost an additional €25.
According to the British Embassy in Madrid, it should take around four weeks to process your UK passport application from Cyprus. There is no fast track service available for passports, except in extreme circumstances such as death, accident or injury. If you require a fast track service, make sure you mark the date of intended travel on the front of your application form and make sure you remember to include evidence of your urgent travel arrangements.
