Citizenship in Cyprus

The government of Cyprus has developed various incentives in order to attract foreign direct investment into Cyprus. Citizenship by investment program can be considered as one of them and grants full citizenship and second passport to investors and their family members along with full benefits of living, working and studying in European Union. The program was developed by Cyprus Developers Alliance together with an internationally known audit company KPMG and has already attracted more than 3 billion EUR of foreign direct investment.

In September 2016, positive changes were introduced to the Citizenship by investment program by reducing the minimum investment amount from 2,5 million EUR to 2 million EUR and a possibility to include parents of the investor provided that an additional property will be purchased at the minimum amount of 500 000 EUR + VAT.
