Living in Cyprus

Cyprus, with its warm and stable climate and convenient geographical position, is considered an attractive place for both business and residence. The investment landscape in Cyprus is beneficial due to the island’s well-qualified labour force and a reliable transport and telecommunications system.

Cyprus has a modern, free-market, service-based economy, where in conjunction with its effective and transparent regulatory and legal framework, it offers international investors and businesses the confidence to invest, grow, and prosper. Cyprus was ranked number 54 out of 190 countries on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index 2020. A number of new measures have been put into place to reboot the economy in the wake of the massive and difficult restructuring of the country’s banking sector. These measures are aimed, among other things, at helping to stimulate economic growth.

Residence in Cyprus

In line with the Cypriot government’s intention to increase foreign investment and to help its economic development, Regulation 6(2) of the Aliens and Immigration Regulations has recently been simplified by the Ministry of Interior in order to issue residence permits to applicants from non-European countries who intend to invest in the republic, provided that the following requirements are met:

A minimum investment of EUR 300,000 into one of the following:

Residential or other property purchased in Cyprus (including VAT)
Share capital of a physical company registered and operating in Cyprus, which employs at least five people
Units of the Cyprus Investment Funds Association’s collective investments (AIF, AIFLNP, RAIF)
Secured annual income of a minimum of EUR 30,000 from abroad and from sources other than employment in Cyprus
The residence permit holder must visit Cyprus at least once every two years to maintain their residence status.
