CYPRUS INVESTMENT PROGRAM
Most European countries allow investors to receive temporary residency or, in rare cases, permanent residency. Cyprus is the only EU country that offers foreign investors the opportunity to receive citizenship through investment in approximately 6 months.
In accordance with the changes in legislation on Cyprus citizenship of September 13, 2016, the right to receive citizenship extends to investors and members of their family who own real estate in Cyprus in an amount of €500,000, provided that the investor makes an additional investment of at least €1.5 million for a period of at least 3 years.
