After the investment has been paid in full, the main applicant (the investor) and his/her spouse submit all the necessary documents to the Ministry of Interior.

The Ministry of Interior reviews the application and grants a ‘Citizenship Confirmation’ letter.

The main applicant and his/her spouse travel to Cyprus to provide Biometric data for a Permanent Residence permit.

5 days later, Permanent Residence cards are available to be sent to the main applicants

Month 3

3 months after the Date of Issue registered on the Citizenship Confirmation letter, the Citizenship is approved by the Ministry of Interior. The main applicant and his/her spouse are Citizens of the Republic of Cyprus.

Month 6

6 months after the Date of Issue registered on the Permanent Residence cards, the main applicant and his/her spouse are able to travel to Cyprus to swear the oath of allegiance, provide new biometrics and collect their Cyprus European passport.

Minor children are fast tracked and can expect to receive their Cyprus passports around 15 days after the main applicant.
