Cyprus Citizenship

In an effort to promote Cyprus as a center for investment the Council of Ministers of the republic of Cyprus has enforced the scheme for naturalization of investors in Cyprus by exception. This scheme is practically aiming in inviting foreign direct investment in return, of which the investor is privileged to obtain European citizenship.

The main characteristics- prerequisites are as follows

  • Total investment of €2M to €2,5M out of which €0,5M must be invested in a residence.
  • The investor and the dependent members of his family will participate and enjoy the citizenship advantage.
  • An additional € 0.5M residence will extend the privilege to the parents of the investor. The above procedure follows a permanent residence permit that must be secured in advance.
