Invest In Cyprus

Cyprus Investment Programme

The Real Return on Investment
Cyprus is a modern, cosmopolitan, transparent business centre offering opportunities for investment across a wide range of sectors.

One of the main objectives of the economic policy of the Republic of Cyprus is to further encourage Foreign Direct Investment and to attract high net worth individuals to settle and do business in Cyprus. Key factors that make Cyprus an attractive destination for investment, is the highly specialized human capital, the reliable legislative and regulatory framework, the attractive and transparent tax regime, and the high quality life prevailing in the island country. Within this framework and taking into account the strong investor interest, the Government of Cyprus has established the “Cyprus Investment Programme”. On the basis of the Programme, a non-Cypriot citizen, who meets specific economic criteria may apply for the acquisition of the Cyprus citizenship through naturalization by exception. Before he can obtain the Cyprus Passport, he must hold a valid Residence Permit of the Republic of Cyprus for a minimum period of six months.
