After the birth of the baby, the hospital or private clinic issues a form which documents the basic details of the infant such as birth date, baby’s name as well as the parents’ names. To register the birth, take this form to your local Citizen Service Center or any District Administration Office. You will be asked to present your own birth certificates, passports, Cyprus Yellow Resident Slip and marriage certificate (unmarried parents are required to sign a declaration of parentage at the local court to state that their child is theirs). The birth certificate is then issued with four to five additional copies against a small fee. To register the birth with your nation’s consular office you will need to obtain an ‘Apostille’ for the Cypriot birth certificate (this is a international certification that a government issued document is indeed authentic) which you can get at the Ministry of Justice and Public Order in Nicosia.
