Cyprus Investment Programme and Permanent Residency

Attracting foreign direct investment is at the heart of Cyprus’ development strategy. In line with this policy, the Cyprus government has introduced the Cyprus Investment Programme to enable foreign investors to obtain full Cypriot citizenship (EU-member state).

Cyprus has been a full member of the European Union since 2004 and adopted the euro as its currency in 2008. The small but dynamic country of Cyprus has a modern, free-market, service-based economy with an effective and transparent regulatory and legal framework, a highly competitive tax system bolstered by an extensive network of over 60 double tax treaties in force worldwide.

A business friendly environment and advanced infrastructure, combined with a high quality of life, allows investors and their families to enjoy the best of both worlds. Ease of doing business, safety, stability, year-round sunshine, beautiful beaches and mountain scenery, as well as an array of historical and cultural attractions, all combine to make Cyprus one of the most attractive destinations in the EU for both living and doing business.

This section provides information for nationals of countries that are not members of the EU. The programme requires the amount of €2 million to be invested in Cyprus for a minimum period of three years. The citizenship is granted within just three months. This programme has already attracted over €3 billion of direct investments into the economy of Cyprus.
