    Country Overview

    The Republic of Cyprus is an Island country near the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. It is known for its stable climate, sunshine for over 300 days, and excellent beaches, and it is a fantastic place to invest and reside in Europe. Cyprus became a vital member of the British Commonwealth in 1961 and joined the European Union in 2004.

    The country is an advanced, high-income economy adopting the euro currency in 2008. It has a very high score on the Human Development Index and is currently ranked 29th globally.

    Cyprus has a well-established offshore banking sector that offers the lowest corporation taxes in the EU, making it an attractive option for international tax planning. In addition, free trade is allowed within the European Union, and the island has signed double taxation treaties with many countries. Its location at the crossroads of Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East makes it an ideal destination for free travel and business expansion. English is widely spoken and understood for both business and everyday life.

    About Cyprus Residency by Investment

    The Cyprus Residency by Investment is a fast-track program for investors from Non-European Union countries to process permanent residency applications in a minimum of two months. If you purchase property in Cyprus with a value of at least EUR 300,000, you may be eligible for certain benefits or privileges. The residency program can lead to Cyprus Citizenship by Investment. The country’s citizens and residents get excellent opportunities for business and investment, with a wide range of options for investors. Real estate yields and prices have bounced back strongly since hitting their lowest points during the global financial crisis. You can get eligible to apply for citizenship after 5 years which is an excellent way to secure a second passport from a European country. Cyprus has paused its direct citizenship by investment program since November 1, 2020.
