Frequently Asked Questions

Why Cyprus?

Permanent residence in Cyprus is a profitable investment with the opportunity to increase your capital by renting real estate, as well as entering a new market. In addition, it is a status that gives you the right to live freely on the territory of the state, enjoying a mild climate, beautiful landscapes, beaches, and more than 300 days of sunshine a year! Cyprus is an opportunity for relatively inexpensive accommodation. Here you will be able to provide yourself with a great standard of living with the opportunity to save for the future. Especially when compared to Central European countries and the UK.

All these and many other advantages can be obtained by having a residence permit of this country. To obtain a residence permit, it is enough, for example, to invest in real estate, provided that the minimum investment amount is not less than €300,000. A Cyprus residence permit can also be obtained for investments in business or commercial funds.

It is important to remember that the applicant's proven annual income from abroad must be at least €30,000 per year.

Permanent residence in Cyprus for investment

Residency in Cyprus for investment is a popular program for immigration or “reserve airfield" among businessmen, entrepreneurs and investors. Doing business in Cyprus is easy and inexpensive, and the residence permit of this country from €300 000 will allow you to do it legally and be exempt from paying a lot of taxes. Judge for yourself, registration of a company takes only 2-3 days, and bureaucracy is minimized. Corporate tax in Cyprus is the lowest in Europe - only 12.5%. The normal VAT rate is 19%, but there is a possibility of reduction to 5% (when buying real estate and fulfillment of certain conditions) and 0% (when buying secondary real estate in Cyprus).

In what cases do clients choose the program of residence in Cyprus for investment?

According to The Financial Times, Cyprus ranks 7th out of 12 among countries that offer citizenship for investment. Cyprus is ahead of Malta, Bulgaria, Austria and other European countries. According to Henley & Partners passport rankings, Cyprus is ranked 14th (out of 100) for freedom of movement. Thus, Cyprus may be the choice of residents of countries that offer few opportunities to travel visa-free. Given that it is currently impossible to acquire Cypriot citizenship for investment, those people who are interested in this country should consider acquiring a permanent residence in Cyprus.

The process of applying for a residence permit is relatively simple. In addition, permanent residence in Cyprus is a direct opportunity to obtain citizenship of this country. Even the minimum amount of investment (from €300,000) will give access to the consideration of citizenship when living in Cyprus for 5 years. It should be understood that citizenship for investment in Cyprus can not be bought. The program is suspended. However, the residence permit gives the opportunity to obtain the desired passport in the future without the need to reside in Cyprus (only a visit once in two years).

The Permanent Residence Card is issued for a period of 10 years and then automatically renewed every 10 years from the date of issue at the request of the person concerned and upon payment of a fee of €20.

The maximum period for granting a residence permit is 2 months. The 2-month period starts on the day the Ministry of Interior issues a confirmation of the application for a residence permit. The guarantee of the residence permit depends on the fulfillment of all conditions by the applicant. A 2-week grace period for administrative costs is allowed. It is also worth considering that in order to obtain a residence permit in Cyprus, it is necessary to visit the country for processing. However, this is a very small period of time and further residence in Cyprus is not necessary to maintain this status. The applicant must visit the state once every two years, and that's it. The status of tax resident is assigned to those who are in the country for more than half a year. If an investor is interested in obtaining tax resident status in Cyprus, he will need to prove that he is in the country for at least 183 days a year.

Cyprus is the best choice for living, vacationing and investing

Officially, Cyprus has almost the lowest crime rate in the world. Here they do not put bars on the windows, and the height of fences is legally limited to just above one meter. There are also no guards in hotels, banks, or stores. The likelihood of theft is minimized here.

Most Cypriots speak fluent English. The country was a British colony for almost a hundred years, so it is not difficult to adapt. English is also the second official language of the country in the southern part of Cyprus. Here the main religion is Christianity. For the most part in Cyprus also understand Russian. In this sense, the island is compared to Georgia or Poland. In many cafes menus are translated into Russian.

The education received here allows you to grow and develop in an international cultural environment and in the future to continue studying in the best higher educational institutions in America, Europe, or Asia. Another advantage is the presence of Russian-speaking and English-speaking kindergartens.

In addition, there is almost no heavy industry in Cyprus. This indicates that this country has a low level of pollution.
