Europe has long established itself as the most sought-after region in terms of high number of immigrants and accounting for over half of the total number of global citizenship applications.
Also, with BREXIT fast approaching, many clients are seeking to secure their settled status in the UK by obtaining EU (Cyprus) citizenship first and arriving in the UK before BREXIT as EU nationals.
The Cypriot immigration policy and legal framework now enable Non-EU applicants to obtain Cypriot citizenship on an expedited basis through investment.
The Cyprus Citizenship by Investment Program allows you to obtain EU citizenship within 6 months through investment. Investors making a minimum investment of €2.0M in real estate situated in Cyprus (or €2.5M in combination of real estate and other investment options), and who satisfy the good standing criteria set by the Cyprus government, receive a Cypriot passport within only 6 months. After 3 years the investor can liquidate their investment and simply own a residential property or properties in Cyprus to the value of €500,000. The main advantages of the program are:
- Cyprus does not require applicants to live on the island prior, during or after the application process, unlike all other EU countries with citizenship programs that impose some form of residency requirements.
- Application process takes 6 months, with approval granted within approximately 4 months.
- Simple and straightforward application process with no requirements to disclose source of wealth or funds, no medical testing, and no language requirements.
- Approved by the EU (being one of only two CBI programs in Europe with official EU approval).
- The program is available for the whole family, including spouse, minor children, financially dependent adult children and parents
- Visa free access to travel freely within over 159 counties worldwide, including all
EU countries and Canada
- It gives the right to live, work and study without restriction within the 28 countries of the EU, as well as Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
- The Cyprus Non-domicile individuals can enjoy zero taxation of worldwide dividends, royalty and interest income for a period of 17 years, as well as on proceed from fale of securities
- Dual citizenship is permitted
The above services are provided by our partner firm, C. Savva & Associates Ltd. Our Cyprus immigration partners will be happy to provide free consultations and answer any questions that you may have by phone, or email or meeting in person in London, Cyprus, or another convenient location.
The services include preparation of application, assistance to Cypriot Citizenship by Investment applicants with finding the right investment, including investments into residential and commercial property and other eligible (non property related) investment in Cyprus, which in most cases guarantee a return on investment and/or a contract exit within 3-5 years. Some of the options include buy back guarantee after 3 or 5 years, backed up by bank guarantee or corporate guarantee by the developer.
