The process to acquire Cyprus (EU) Citizenship

Step by step guide how to get Cyprus (European) Citizenship by investment for you and your family.
The procedure of obtaining Cyprus Citizenship (Passport) by investment is simple. Here is a step-by-step summary of how you can get your Cyprus Passport:

1) You will get in touch with a BuySell expert and we will advise on the process for acquiring citizenship, given your specific circumstances

2) You must make an investment of €2 million euros in residential properties. You can either buy one home for the amount of €2 million or multiple residential units for the total amount of €2 million. In case you buy multiple residential units, at least one of them must be minimum €500,000. For example, you can buy a Villa for €500,000 and 15 apartments for €100,000 each, total €2,000,000. Our experts will prepare and advise you on the right investment package based on your preferences.

3) You will be required to provide our legal team with the following documents: (1) Copy of passport, (2) Copy of Birth Certificate, (3) Copy of Marriage Certificate, (4) Certificate of criminal record, (5) Two passport size photographs, (6) Curriculum Vitae of applicant 
5) Once the investment has been made and all documents are collected then your application is submitted to the ministry of Interior. Simultaneously, a fee of €2.000 is paid to the Ministry of Interior. 
6) If your application satisfies all the criteria, the Minister of Interior presents the application to the Council of Ministers for final approval
7) Once the Council of Ministers approves the application, then our legal team submits the approval to the Civil Registry and Migration Department and they issue the Certificate of Naturalization, following payment of an additional €5.000 that constitutes the Naturalization Certificate issuing fee
8) From that date onwards, you may come at any time in order to appear at the Civil Registry and Migration Department and get the passport
The time frame from the date of submission to the date of the completion of the process is approximately 3 months. Your spouse and your children up to 28 years are also granted Cyprus Passport with no additional investment.
