Process in a nutshell
Cyprus Investment Program
The new criteria require a €75.000 donation to the Research and Innovation Foundation plus a donation of €75.000 to the Cyprus Land Development Corporation (to support housing for the less fortunate). The €75.000 donation to the Research and Innovation Foundation can be avoided if the investment includes either €75.000 investment in a certified innovative enterprise or €400.000 investment in (a) company whose operations fall within the primary or secondary sectors of the economy excluding constructions or (b) a company in the sectors of research and development, education, health and renewable energy sources.
Cyprus allows both the spouse and dependent children (under 18 or up to 28 who are studying or have a health issue) and the parents of the applicant to obtain a passport. If the parents of the applicants will get a passport, they also need to have a residence of €500.000 (or have together with the applicant a residence of €1.000.000). The €500.000 value is added on the applicant’s investment. (For example if an applicant invests €2.000.000 in residential properties he/she needs to add €500.000 for the parents, making the total investment €2.500.000)
