Cypriot Passport / EU Citizenship
Scheme for the acquisition of Cypriot (EU) Passports / Citizenship to non-EU citizens
What’s new for the EU Citizenship Program?
| The new options are as follows:
There is no requirement to make a donation to the local government, in contrast to many other citizenship programs worldwide.
Cyprus does not require applicants to live in the country prior, during or after the application process, unlike all other EU countries with citizenship programs that impose some form of residency requirements.
Applicants are able to receive a Cypriot passport within 3 months of filing an application, being by far the fastest route to EU Citizenship.
The previous investment options, including unlimited investment in securities and cash asset transfers into the country, will remain available only during a short grace period that expires on October 31, 2016.
Dual citizenship is allowed and you do not have to give up your current nationality.
- You do not need to reside in Cyprus prior to applying for citizenship
- Favorable tax system.
You can travel without a visa to at least 176 countries including the 28 EU countries.
