ID card

I’ve got my Cyprus ID card. Brand new and shiny. Made of plastic. I am a proud Cypriot now.

P.S.: I’m still missing the proper driving license, but I’ll get it first thing after my trip to Russia next month.

  1. wondering how you’re planning to cross the border. you will be leaving from country as a cypriot, entering Russia with russian pasport, and the leaving with cyprus/russian pasport? huh… you’ll drive custom officers crazy :)


  2. 1) Do they have passports too in Cyprus or just shiny plastic ID cards?
    2) Do they have a russian-like “ethnic nationality” field in their passports? Like for example I can be British but I will never be English.


  3. Alexey,

    I have both plastic ID card and a regular passport. In both of them, there are two fields related to nationality. One is “Nationality”, which actually means citizenship. I have “Cypriot” in there. Another field is “Place of birth”. I have “Russia” in that one.
