Enhancement of the Cyprus Investment Programme

According to the Cyprus Investment Programme, a non-Cypriot citizen who meets certain economic and other criteria may file an application with the Minister of Interior for the acquisition of the Cypriot Citizenship.

The Cyprus Investment Programme is becoming more and more popular through the advantages which it offers. Aiming at further improving the Cyprus Investment Programme, the Council of Ministers through a Decision has established the Committee of Supervision and Control for the Cyprus Investment Programme, consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Interior and Invest Cyprus.

As of July 31st, 2018, any applications for the Cyprus Investment Programme can only be submitted on behalf of the applicants by natural / legal persons registered with the Registry of Service Providers (Registry) of the Cyprus Investment Programme.
