Cyprus Citizenship – Access to EU

An applicant can be granted access to EU citizenship through the successful completion of the Cyprus citizenship-by-exemption program.

Through its endeavors to promote foreign investment in Cyprus and to simplify the process relating to the entry of foreign nationals wanting to invest here, the Cyprus government has amended its immigration laws and adopted a number of policies that grant third country or non-EU individuals either a residence permit in Cyprus or a Cyprus (EU) passport.

Our team of immigration specialists at Chryssafinis & Polyviou Law firm have extensively reviewed and taken into consideration the recent legislative amendmentsand are equipped with the critical know-how needed to deal with all relevant immigration matters in Cyprus.

We can provide you with assistance in the preparation and submission of all immigration applications for Cyprus passports, purchase of property and also in obtaining any required visas, working and/or residence permits.

Because we understand the challenges that come with adhering to every regulatory requirement, we will remove the stress of getting ready the paperwork to be filed with the relevant immigration authorities.

We will also represent you in liaising with the necessary immigration departments so as to ensure that your application is dealt with and processed as effortlessly as possible, and with a positive result.

Our immigration service may include assisting you in the purchase of property in Cyprus, drawing up of any type of required contract, for example, rental, purchase, and so forth and/or financial assessments to minimize the amount of actual investment required for passports (e.g. back to back loans arrangements) and introducing you to local banks.
