Sitting at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, Cyprus offers a stunning climate, beautiful landscape and a safe, stable social and political system.

As a member of the European Union, Cyprus provides high-net-worth individuals with the opportunity to gain an EU passport, opening up the door to a market of 500 million people.

With an investment of €2 million to €5 million into the Cyprus economy, you and your family can obtain an EU passport and all of the benefits associated with it.  In addition to being permitted to live, study and work anywhere in the EU, you can travel to over 120 countries visa-free.

The Cyprus Citizenship by Investment route is the fastest, easiest path to entry into the EU, with the opportunity to acquire citizenship within six months.
