An annual circulation tax (road tax) is payable for vehicles in Cyprus. This is calculated based on engine capacity and charged per calendar year (1 January to 31 December). Tax is paid online and records are kept electronically.

Documents Required to Obtain Road Tax

  • A valid Department of Road Transport Vehicle Test Certificate
  • Auto insurance
  • The registration document (log book)

After the initial road tax payment on a newly purchased vehicle is paid at a DoRT office or Citizen's Service Centre (CSC), the road tax can be paid online and a task disk with bar code can be printed on a home printer and placed in the vehicle.

  • Pay road tax online at the Ministry of Communication and Works, Road Transport Department website
  • Payment can also be made at the Co-Operative Bank (site in Greek) regardless of whether an account is held at the bank. Take the Vehicle Registration Document

Paying in instalments

From September 2014 it became possible for motorists to pay their road tax in arrears in 12 monthly instalments. To arrange an instalment plan it is necessary to contact the Road Transport Department directly.

Late payments

The deadline for payment of road tax in Cyprus is in February, however this may be officially extended by the government depending on the year. Any payments made after the deadline incur a €30 fee + 10 per cent of the payable road tax. The fine does not apply to instalment plans arranged prior to the deadline.
