With its Decision of October 15, 2021, the Council of Ministers approved the introduction of the
The “Cyprus Digital Nomad Visa” Scheme allows nationals from non-EU and non-EEA countries, who can perform their work location-independently using telecommunications technology, to reside temporarily in Cyprus and work for an employer registered abroad or perform work through telecommunications technology for companies or clients located abroad.
The Scheme’s goal is to strengthen Cyprus as a center for the provision of electronic services, where in combination with the other advantages offered by Cyprus, the attraction of digital nomads will contribute to the development of the business ecosystem and consequently to the economic development of the country. The introduction of the “Cyprus Digital Nomad Visa Scheme” is included in the Strategy for Attracting Businesses for Activities or/and Expansion of their Activities in Cyprus.
People who wish to live in Cyprus and who are freelancers, employed or self-employed and working remotely in companies operating abroad, can obtain permits issued for one year with the option to renew for another two years. Holders of the Digital Nomad Visa must earn at least €3,500 per month, have medical insurance, and have a clean criminal record form the country of residence or origin.
For any family dependents, the income amount is increased by 20% if there is a spouse/civil partner and by 15% for each child.
Digital Nomad’s family members can reside in Cyprus for the same period as the Digital Nomad, without the right to be employed or perform any economic activity in Cyprus.
The examination period of the application from the date of submission will be approximately five (5) to seven (7) weeks.
