    FAQ ( Frequently Asked Questions )

    What are some of the reasons the Cyprus citizenship by investment program is attracting so many international investors?

    International business executives, investors, and important persons who are active worldwide consider an alternative citizenship and passport a powerful tool for international tax planning and a safety net should the living conditions at home become unbearable.

    -Visa-free travel to 159 countries, including the UK, Canada, and Europe  

    -A better education for the applicant’s children

    -Children and grandchildren gain visa-free travel and the right to live, work, or study anywhere in Europe and Switzerland.

    -Personal security   

    -Tax advantages

    What tax burdens are imposed on an investor after obtaining Cypriot citizenship? Will the investor be required to pay taxes on income obtained from sources located abroad?

    Upon obtaining citizenship of the Republic of Cyprus no new or additional tax liabilities arise for the investor unless the investor opts to become a Cyprus tax resident, i.e. to spend 183 days in Cyprus (or more days than in any other jurisdiction). Cyprus tax residents who are NOT DOMICILED in Cyprus, that means they have not been Cyprus tax residents for 17 years out of last 20, by the July 16, 2015 tax legislation will now NOT BE SUBJECT to taxes on dividends, rental income and bank deposit interest on a worldwide income and income generated in Cyprus. This is indeed revolutionary!

    Can I include my family in my application?

    Yes. All investment options to citizenship allow for dependents. ‘Dependent’ refers to: (1) children under the age of 18, (2) children between the age of 18 and 25 who are full-time students and financially dependent on the main applicant, and (3) parents or grandparents over the age of 65 years old, if they are living with or fully supported by the main applicant. Neither the spouse nor the children are required to make any additional financial investments.

    What is the period for immigration authorities of Cyprus to consider an application for granting citizenship to investors?

    The period for consideration of applications comprises three months at the most from submission of an application. Thus you obtain a passport of a citizen (national) of the Republic of Cyprus within about three months time.

    Do new citizens have to pay taxes to the national treasury? Is there a tax on the income received from the sources outside Cyprus?

    After fulfilling the program requirements and getting citizenship, the investor does not get burdened with any tax liabilities. One can obtain a tax resident status if he/she wants to. The jurisdiction taxpayers must live in Cyprus more than 2 months per year.

    Which rights do foreign investors receive after obtaining the passport of Cyprus?

    Cypriot passport holders get all the rights of EU citizens. One can reside, work and study in European countries without any limitations, travel visa-free to the Schengen and EU countries, change tax residence. One can also vote in the Cyprus elections.       

    Should a person reject their current citizenship?

    The law of the Republic of Cyprus provides for dual citizenship in relations to the citizens of the countries having a specific agreement or arrangement with Cyprus.

    Even if the country of your current citizenship doesn’t allow dual citizenship, it’s not always necessary to renounce the first/main citizenship. The information about the passport issuance is strictly confidential and is not transferred to the country of your current citizenship. Thus, you can use both passports.
