Fast Track Residence Permit in Cyprus Through Investment

To obtain permanent residency in Cyprus, the applicant must invest a minimum of €300,000 in one of the following investment categories:

1: New Residential Property: The applicant can purchase up to two (2) residential units (apartments or houses), provided that the total market value is €300,000 + VAT – new construction/first time sales only.

The funds must be transferred to Cyprus from abroad and deposited into the real estate seller’s bank account.

The property purchase can be made by a legal entity in which the applicant and/or their spouse are the sole shareholders.

2: Commercial real estate, new or resale. Qualifying properties include offices, shops, hotels or similar properties, or a combination thereof with a minimum total value of €300,000.

3: A Cypriot company employing at least five people in Cyprus. Proof of physical presence and business activity of the company on the island must be provided.

4 Units of a Cypriot Collective Investment Organization (such as AIF, AIFLNP, RAIF).

Note: Property must be held permanent to maintain residency status. However, an investor can replace the property with another of equal or greater value. The new property must fully meet the program’s conditions.

Cyprus Golden Visa through Real Estate – Advantages

  • Real Estate-based Investment: You can apply for permanent residency through real estate purchase remotely or through a representative.
  • Unlimited length of stay or absence from Cyprus. You don’t need to relocate to Cyprus. Visiting Cyprus once every two years is all that is required. 
  • Stable real estate market: Most residential properties are owned, not mortgaged; real estate values are considerably less vulnerable to economic fluctuations. 
  • EU citizenship after 8 years of physical residency: Golden Visa holders are eligible to apply for Cypriot citizenship.
