For many years Cyprus has been a popular destination for non-EU citizen investors who are seeking to pursue business opportunities and/or set up a second home for their families.
In addition to Cyprus’s competitive legal and tax framework, Cyprus Permanent Residency programs, allows non-EU citizens to legally reside in the Republic and provide their families with stability, safety and higher quality of life.
Applicants and their families can freely stay in Cyprus, gain access to higher education institutions and private schools established in Cyprus as well as to the free government school education. It is permanent and for life. They can have fast access to Europe and obtain a one-year Schengen visa in any European embassy in Cyprus. After 7 years of residency in Cyprus, the applicant will have the opportunity to become a Cypriot citizen and enjoy the full benefits of having a Cypriot passport, including the benefits of Cyprus being a member of the European Union.
