How to get started?
Simple 6 step process
Step 1: Review and select real estate investment
Select property/ies (through visit to Cyprus or via correspondence). Sign purchase agreement and transfer funds to a secure account. Receipt issued by Pafilia, which is required for application.
Step 2: Preparation of citizenship application – the client will receive a detailed application package and document checklist.
Applicant must gather all necessary papers required for application. The documents must be officially translated into Greek or English and certified with apostille (if in a country which has signed the Hague Convention of 1961) or stamped by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and relevant Cyprus Embassy.
Step 3: Pre-clearance check
The appointed lawyer completes a pre-clearance check.
Step 4: Submit applications (PR & Citizenship) - Issuance of Permanent Residency Card
The applicant/s must visit Cyprus in order to submit the PR and citizenship applications and to give their biometric data required for the issuance of the permanent residency card. The Permanent Residency card issued in 5 days. The payment of the government submission fee of €2.000 per adult applicant for the purpose of the citizenship application, is required at this stage. The citizenship application is lodged, together with the property purchase agreement and all required documents, at the Ministry of Interior. Also, PR application fee €500 per family & €70 per person required.
Step 5: Completion of naturalization and issuance of Cypriot passport and ID cards
The Ministry of Interior will approve the citizenship application within a period of six months from submission. Payment of the government approval fee €5,000 per adult applicant is required at this stage. Once the applicant has held a Cyprus PR card for a period of six months, he is able to complete the naturalization process. The Naturalization Certificate must be signed by the applicant either in front of a Registrar of a Cypriot Court or a Consular at any Cypriot Consulate abroad within 3 months of receiving approval. In Cyprus the process, including collection of biometric ID cards, takes 1 day, while through a Cyprus embassy abroad the process takes up to 2 weeks.
Step 6: Naturalisation of children and grandparents
Submit the applications of children/parents to be naturalised. Applications of minor children are processed within 3 weeks; they can visit Cyprus anytime to collect their papers. Adult children/parents applications are processed within six months and are subject to a submission fee of €2,000 and approval fee of €5,000per person. Once approved passports and ID cards must be collected within three months.
