New requirements for obtaining The Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit

Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit

At the end of April 2023, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Cyprus approved amendments to the rules for issuing immigration permits to investors from third countries. The amount of investment for The Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit (CPRP) has remained unchanged – minimum €300,000 + VAT. However, the authorities decided to tighten the checks in the process and after the granting of Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit. And also increase the annual minimum amount of income for main applicant and dependents.

Here are the main requirements for obtaining The Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit announced:
  1. The holder of Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit must certify every year that he still owns real estate or shares in companies in which at least €300,000 + VAT have been invested.
  2. The amount of the minimum annual income should be €50,000 (not €30,000, as it was before). For a spouse – €15,000, for each minor child – €10,000 per year. Previously, for spouses and children it was €5,000 per year. Financially dependent parents and children (under 25) may obtain permit together with investor. Note that children must not be married.

“If the main applicant fails to provide supporting documents, then the immigration permits for him and his family members will be canceled,”– said Mr. Constantinos Ioannou, Head of the Cypriot Ministry of Interior.

Cyprus is a member of the European Union since 2004, and a Eurozone member since 2008. Nevertheless, Cyprus is not in the Schengen agreement. Accordingly, Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit holders may live on Cyprus. But they don’t have a right to travel visa-free to European countries. Balanced against the fact that investor may reside on Cyprus with three generations of family members. So, this residency can cover the whole family and does not expire.

Note that there is no list of accredited real estate projects to obtain a Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit. The choice is very wide.

Official statistics say that in 2022, a total of 220 properties in the luxury segment were sold in Cyprus for more than 1.5 million euros. 

However, to participate in the Cyprus Fast Track Permanent Residence Permit program, you can select projects whose real estate value will be close to the investment threshold. However, these properties sell out quickly. Especially if they have not yet been completed, but the commissioning of the object is not far off.  

Let’s take a look at a few properties from the Apex Capital Partners selection. All of them are eligible for the program “Cyprus Permanent Residence by Investment”.
