Permanent Residency


Cyprus continues to be a favoured choice for foreign residents due to its convenient and accessible geographical location in the eastern Mediterranean, its warm climate with over 300 days of sunshine each year, friendly hospitality, widely spoken English, coupled with a low cost health system, access to high standard education and the lowest tax rate in Europe.

In an effort to encourage foreign investment and to assist economic development the Cyprus government has recently simplified the Permanent Residency Scheme so that Non EU Citizens who purchase property in Cyprus can obtain a Residence Permit within 2 months.

We use an experienced legal team who specialise in immigration and will help you with the financial and application requirements. They will assist you in obtaining the relevant paperwork and will provide step-by-step guidance through the application process.


Applicant Requirements:

  • Purchase a property of a minimum value of €300,000 plus VAT from funds transferred from abroad. €200,000 must be paid prior to the application.
  • Deposit a minimum of €30,000 from abroad into a Cyprus bank account locked in for 3 years.
