    If you are an E.U citzen you only need a passport valid for your stay. Non E.U citizens must have a passport valid for a period of 3 months after their stay.

  • We are travelling to Cyrpus in July and my sons passport expires in October 2011, can he still travel on that passport?
  • my family and me are travelling to Corfu 8/7/11. our passport expire Aug/ Sep 11. do i need to renew before we go?

    Urgent reply required.

    Thanks
  • @Anna - in all likelihood, yes. Depends on your passport though - for example, European passports are good for travel within the EU up to the date of their expiry.
  • Thanks DavidF, should have made it clear but all passports are Full English Passports.

    Thanks
  • @Anna - looks like you will be fine then. From the UK Foreign Office site: "Non-EEA (European Economic Area) nationals travelling to Greece must have a passport valid for at least three months after the period of their intended stay or expiry date of their visa. Nationals of the EEA are exempt from the above regulation but must have a passport valid for the period of their intended stay."
  • Thanks, just saved me over £300.00
  • Hello...
    I have read all of the comments but need to ask to check before I try and apply for a passport renewal.
    I am due to travel to Greece (Crete) for 1 week from 14th - 21st July and my passport expires on 18th Oct 2011. Will I need to renew my passport in order to travel?
    I am a british citizen!
    Cheers!

  • I am Canadian, I will be visiting North and Southern Cyprus, I have had mixed answers on whether or not I can get into Greece if I have an entry stamp on my passport from North Cyprus, does anyone know for sure if it will be a problem to enter Greece if there is an entry stamp to North Cyprus from a previous trip???
  • We have Canadian passports that expire 4 months after our holiday to Crete - would this be considered valid? I was told by one travel agent 6 months and another 3 months.

  • hi, im travelling to greece on the 29th of may until the 5th of june. my passport expires on the 18th of June. I am aware that because I am travelling within the EU, my passport only has to be valid for the duration of the stay but because I only have 13 days left on it when im back would this affect it? or will i get away with not getting another one? answers as soon as possible please if can, thank youuuuu :) x
  • l Have a Zimbabwean passport am currently staying in north cyprus&have a student visa l would like to know the requirements for the visa to travel to south cyprus
  • Here is the information regarding visas for Cyprus. http://www.cyprusvisa.eu/cyprus-short-stay-visa-requirements.html 
    You could try calling the Consular department , last number when you scroll down to the bottom of the page.
    Or you could be a little bold and go to the border checkpoint and ask the immigration officer what you need to enter Cyprus . If you are at the Eastern Med University then Famagusta is your nearest border crossing.

    North Cyprus Border Crossings

    Since 2004, when the Republic of Cyprus joined the EU, it has become much easier to cross the border between Northern Cyprus and the south. The locals cross the Cyprus border daily to shop, do business or just visit either half of Nicosia. If you are a tourist visiting North Cyprus, all you need to do is present your passport (and visa, if you need one for South Cyprus) at the Turkish Cypriot passport control, who will give you a white slip to fill out with your name, passport number and nationality. It is this white visa form that will be stamped by the Northern Cyprus border authorities, NOT your passport. Once over the North Cyprus border, your passport will be checked again by the Greek Cypriot authorities. You can cross the Northern Cyprus border as many times as you like, and stay as long as you want. The border crossings are open 24 hours a day. You cannot take a North Cyprus hire care south of the border.

  • I had same issue, I think it needs to be valid for unleast 3 monthes if you are from europe you can get away with it.
