Help with obtaining a copy of our marriage certificate

Post Posted: Tue Mar 07, 2017 2:47 pm

I hope a resident of Cyprus can guide me in the right direction on this problem. We married in Larnaca Registry Office in July 1982, having almost completed a sailing trip round the world. We are now long time residents of Portugal. Because of Brexit I am applying for Portuguese citizenship, and for this need a certified copy of our marriage certificate, with an apostille affixed. I have established that I need to contact the Ministry of the Interior in Nicosia, I have emailed but no response, tried to phone on numerous occasions, never get through but ONCE spoke to someone who didn't speak English. Could someone familiar with Cypriot bureaucracy please suggest how I can make progress on this? Luckily I have plenty of time as I have to do a language exam in May, and only after that do I need the various documents. Thanks in advance
Mary

Thanks KathyD, I will explore those web pages. I have been in touch with a law company who offered to do the job for the modest fee of £415, which considering I have now discovered the certificate costs €13.65, seems rather a lot. Any more input, recommendation of a local agent most welcome.
