Obtain Cypriot Permanent Residency By Investment In 2024

Boasting stunning scenery, spectacular beaches, excellent affordability and high-quality living, Cyprus ticks a lot of boxes – both as a Plan B and Plan A destination.

In addition,  the Cyprus Golden Visa is one of only four European residency by investment programs offering permanent residency (PR) status right from the start.

(Malta (MPRP), Gibraltar (Category 2 HNWI Residency) and Russia (Russian Golden Visa) are the only other countries to offer immediate PR by investment.)

In addition, with eligible property investments priced from only €300,000, the Cypriot Golden Visa is also Europe’s most affordable permanent residency by investment program in 2024.

In addition, Cyprus’ Parliament is currently debating reducing the minimum investment amount to just €250,000 for applicants earning an income of €40,000 or more per year. (We’ll publish any official program updates as and when they become available.)

Find out more about the program below, or contact us now to discuss your options.

And if you’re here because you were looking for the now-defunct Cyprus Citizenship By Investment Program, be sure to get in touch – there are other options

Benefits Of  The Cyprus Golden Visa Program


Eligible real estate investments priced from only €300,000 – and you can mix and match commercial resale and new/off-plan residential properties.


You only need to visit Cyprus once in every two-year period in order to renew your permanent residency permit(s).


Your spouse, children under 18 and financially dependent adult children are also eligible to be included in your Cypriot Golden Visa application.


Unlike as in Portugal – where family reunification can take years – you and your family can travel to and live in Cyprus from the get-go.


Unlike in Portugal, Greece, Spain and Italy, your Cypriot residency status is immediately permanent – NOT temporary first.


Obtain Cypriot permanent residency in as little as 60 days with one of the fastest Golden Visa programs in Europe.

Buy a new (first-time / non resale) residential property – or up to two properties from the same developer – worth at least €300,000 (plus 19% VAT).

Option 2: €300,000 

New OR Resale Commercial Property (Category B)

Buy a new OR resale commercial property – or up to two properties – worth €300,000+ in total (i.e. hotels, retail spaces, offices, or a combination).

Option 3: €300,000

Share Capital Investment (Category C)

Invest €300,000+ in the share capital of a Cypriot company with at least five employees and a proven physical presence (i.e. economic substance).

Option 4: €300,000

Cypriot Fund Investment (Category D)

The investment must be held (or replaced with another eligible investment) for as long as the permanent residency status is active. Failure to comply with this program requirement will lead to your residency permit being cancelled.
