Are you a Dutch national, do you live in Cyprus and do you need a declaration of residence? You can apply for the statement in person at the Dutch embassy in Nicosia.
To apply for a certificate of residence by email, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Gather the documents that you need
To apply for a certificate of residence you will need:
- a valid Dutch passport or Dutch ID card.
- proof of address. This can be proof of registration with your municipality or, if this is not available in your country, a bank statement or utility bill from the past month bearing your name and address, or a rental contract bearing your name and address.
- proof that you are legally resident in the country in question, for example a residence permit, work permit or student visa.
When you have gathered all the documents, make a PDF of each document. Please note: photos of documents will not be accepted.
Step 2: Make an appointment
You must make an appointment at the embassy. Make an appointment online.
Step 3: Pay the fee
The fee for a consular certificate is €30. You pay the fee when you submit your application.
Step 4: Receive the certificate
In most cases, you’ll receive the certificate on the same day as your appointment. If this is not possible, inform the staff member during your appointment whether you wish to collect the certificate or have it posted to you.
