Cyprus law has some advantageous differences from other EU countries when it comes to immigration. Only in Cyprus is it possible to receive permanent residence by buying real estate.
Foreigners who purchase property in Cyprus can receive the status of permanent resident through an accelerated procedure that takes just 2 months.
Permanent residency in an EU country-Permanent residency in Cyrus gives you the ability to live in Cyprus year-round, and after Cyprus joins the Schengen zone, you will be able to freely move around the entire Schengen space.
Permanent residency for your whole family-Together with the main applicant, also members of his/her family will receive permanent residency: his/her spouse, children including adult children under the age of 28 – and financially dependent parents.
There is no obligation to stay in the country or pay taxes –Holders of Cyprus permanent residency through real estate investment do not automatically become Cyprus tax residents and are under no obligation to stay in Cyprus.
An opportunity to receive EU citizenship-Gaining permanent residency in Cyprus through investment in real estate and then staying on the island allows you to receive Cyprus citizenship in the future.
An opportunity to become a Cyprus tax resident –By staying within Cyprus for only 60 days a year, a Cyprus resident can legally receive tax residency on the island and enjoy all the advantages of the country’s tax system.
Receiving permanent residency in this European Union country takes only 2 months.
