If you are a citizen of an EU member state, your driving license is valid until it expires.

Driving licenses from the countries listed below are valid for visitors for a maximum of 90 days, or if resident 6 months (one hundred and eighty-five days). Then they must be exchanged for a Cyprus driving license:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Georgia
  • Iceland
  • Japan
  • Liechtenstein
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Russia
  • Serbia
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Switzerland
  • UK
  • Ukraine
  • United Arab Emirates
  • USA
  • Zimbabwe

If you are from any other country we suggest obtaining an International Driving Permit (IDP) together with a current valid domestic driving licence. Those are usually valid until the IDP expires, giving you enough time to get a new one in Cyprus.
