Cyprus Citizenship by Investment

One of the easiest and quickest ways to obtain EU citizenship is through the Cyprus citizenship by investment programme. In efforts to attract foreign direct investment, the Cyprus jurisdiction allows foreign investors to obtain full citizenship of the EU-member state through investment.

SIGTAX comprises of expert specialists with proven experience in providing citizenship and residency in Cyprus for individuals and their families. We take a proactive approach and have one of the most competitive rates in Cyprus. Over the years we have helped many different nationalities through this process.

There are two golden visa programs in Cyprus—permanent residency or citizenship. Both the two Cypriot immigration investment schemes are quick and effective in obtaining a residence permit or a second passport. We advise companies and individuals on residence planning and assist in obtaining a second citizenship or residence permit through the official state investment programs in Cyprus.

In order to qualify for the Cyprus citizenship by investment, you should invest at least €2 million in Cyprus for a minimum period of three years. Furthermore, a combined donation of €150,000 to the Research and Innovation Foundation and to the Land Development Agency is mandatory.  It will take at most just three months from the date of application to obtain citizenship. Ever since the enactment of this programme, Cyprus has seen over €3 billion of direct investment.

With one of the lowest tax rates(12.5%) and an extensive network of over 60 double tax treaties signed with other countries around the globe, Cyprus is the go-to destination for foreign investors. Cyprus not only offers a favorable business environment, but it also has high living standards, enabling the investors and their families to enjoy the best of both worlds. This small yet dynamic jurisdiction has advanced infrastructure, a modern, service-based, stable and free-market economy.
