The Cyprus government has formulated an investment programme aimed at high net worth individuals, investors and entrepreneurs. This allows the successful applicant and their family to hold a Cypriot passport and enjoy all the benefits of a Cypriot National, subject to making necessary investments and complying with specific conditions. Cyprus provides an ideal destination for non-EU individuals wishing to acquire Permanent Residence Permit in an EU country. The whole process is simple and fast. It primarily requires an investment of a minimum of €300,000 + VAT on immovable property in Cyprus. In order to be granted a life-long (permanent) residence permit in Cyprus, the applicant needs to purchase least a new property or two new properties from the same developer with a total price of 300,000 Euros, excluding VAT. The issuance of Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit takes about two months and covers all family members, including children under 25 years old.
