New, more secure ID cards for Cypriots are available from Monday, the interior ministry announced.

All existing IDs remain valid until they expire and do not need to be replaced, the ministry added.

At the end of July, the ministry announced a delay with the issuance of the documents due to technical problems, but these have now been resolved.

“The identity cards are biometric, meet all the standards set by international and European law and therefore have increased levels of security against forgery and impersonation,” the ministry explained.
