With a glorious climate, a relaxed pace of life, and a wealth of golden sand beaches, a move to a beautiful Mediterranean country such as Cyprus is certainly inviting, but how do you get to live that dream? With the Cyprus Permanent Residency Programme, relocating to Cyprus is actually much easier than you may think.
There’s a minimum investment requirement of just €300,000 + VAT which must be made in property in Cyprus. The applicant must show an income from abroad of at least €30,000/year. This income increases by €5,000 per dependant (spouse and children) and €8,000 for each parent/parent in law. Every permit holder must also visit Cyprus at least once every two years. The only additional requirement, besides the financial ones, is a clean criminal record.
There are many benefits of being a resident of Cyprus that go beyond the 300 days of sunshine every year. When applying for the Cyprus Permanent Residency Programme, you can include your spouse, children up to the age of 25, and your parents, all on the one application. With the lowest crime rates in Europe and a very high standard of education and healthcare, Cyprus is perfect for families. Low rates of tax give a high standard of living, and as a Cypriot citizen, you have ease of access throughout Europe. For business owners, low corporate tax, and easy connections to three continents make Cyprus even more appealing.
Open the door to amazing places to visit
With permanent residency in Cyprus, you have all the time in the world to explore all that Cyprus has to offer. There really is something for everyone, so here’s just a small selection of the island’s top attractions that we think you really must visit…
Kato Pafos Archaeology Park - History buffs will love to step back in time with a trip to the Kato Pafos Archaeology Park. With ruined villas, detailed Roman mosaics, and the Tomb of the Kings, an underground burial complex, you can spend all day here.
Pafos Medieval Castle – After a stroll around the harbour, step into the Pafos Medieval Castle for a welcome break from the midday heat and some glorious sea views. This fascinating building has a very interesting history, and once served as a prison.
The Troodos Mountains – Clean, fresh air and magnificent panoramic views are your rewards for heading off the beaten track and taking a trip into the Troodos Mountains. Discover quaint villages, vineyards, and forests. In the winter months, you can even go skiing!
Coral Bay – Everyone has their own favourite beach in Pafos, and there are plenty to choose from, but Coral Bay is perfect if you’re visiting with young children as the water is calm and the beach gently slopes into the sea. With lifeguards and a wide range of amenities, it’s a wonderful place to relax and have fun.
