Message for U.S. Citizens: Important information regarding appointments at the U.S. Embassy Nicosia
May 7, 2021

Location:Nicosia, Cyprus

Important information regarding appointments at the U.S. Embassy: 

  • Embassy Nicosia is no longer able to provide routine passport, CRBA, and federal benefit document pickup at the Embassy.  We will be returning all documents via Cyprus Post in a self-addressed registered envelope provided by the applicant.
  • U.S. citizens attending passport and CRBA appointments at the U.S. Embassy must bring a stamped (2.50 euro), self-addressed registered envelope.  One envelope should be provided per applicant.  If you are applying for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA), you should bring an A4 size envelope.
  • Adult passports can now be renewed without a visit to the U.S. Embassy by following instructions on our website.  We strongly recommend this as the most convenient option to renew your U.S. passport.
  • The U.S. Embassy does not require proof of a COVID test or vaccination to attend appointments.  
  • All visitors to the U.S. Embassy are required to wear face coverings and maintain proper social distancing to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  
  • Notarial appointments are only available on an urgent, case-by-case basis.  Please email ACSNicosia@state.gov to request an urgent appointment. 
  • Routine consular operations at the U.S. Embassy’s north office remain suspended.
