PERMANENT RESIDENCY PERMIT PROGRAMME CYPRUS

The Cyprus Government, in its continuous effort to attract foreign investments, has adopted a range of policies that allow third country individuals (non-EU citizens) to obtain Permanent Residence Permit in Cyprus (PRP).

Permanent Residence Permit (PRP) is easily obtained for people who purchase property. The advantage is that, unlike temporary permits for third country nationals, PRPs are permanent and they do not have to be renewed. Hence, the obtaining of a PRP by a third country national could be very useful for various reasons.

MAIN CONDITIONS

  • Non-European citizens
  • Property of value of €300,000 + VAT or more

DEPENDENT PERSONS

  • The obtained PRP applies to spouse and financially dependent children under the age of 18.
  • Unmarried children between the age of 18 and 25, who prove that they are students and financially dependent on the applicant, they can submit a separate application to obtain an Immigration Permit which they will keep for a lifetime.
  • The Permanent Residence Permit (PR) may also be granted to the parents and parents-in-law of the applicant/holder with the submission of an application.
