Real estate investments. One of the most popular routes to obtain permanent residence is through property investment.
Types of eligible properties:
residential properties: apartments, villas, or houses;
retail spaces: shops and offices can also be part of your portfolio;
hospitality sector: hotels or similar developments catered towards tourists.
You’ll need to invest at least €300,000 in one or more qualifying properties. Consider investing in a residential property with potential rental income. This way, not only do you secure your residency but also generate passive income from it.
Company investments. You can invest at least €300,000 into a company registered in Cyprus. Cyprus' strategic location, favorable tax system, and business-friendly policies make it an ideal destination for investors like you.
Cyprus has business-friendly policies that encourage investment from non-EU citizens. The Mediterranean island is positioned at the intersection of Europe, Africa, and Asia, granting access to European markets.
To qualify under this route, you need to choose a company conducting commercial activities and having 5 or more employees.
You can invest in stocks of local companies or investment funds. The program requirements are met by AIF, AIFLNP, and RAIF.
