What is Cyprus Gold Passport and how do I get it?

The Cypriot government, seeking to support the economy of the republic, invites foreigners to obtain European citizenship by investment. This is called the "golden passport". This method of obtaining citizenship is a common practice in several other countries in the EU and around the world. In terms of the number of rights and freedoms granted, the Cyprus passport does not differ from a passport issued by France, Germany or other European states. Therefore, this opportunity is actively used by foreign investors, heads of various international companies and celebrities.

Pecularities of obtaining a "golden passport" of Cyprus

The current legislation and the migration policy of the republic make it possible to obtain local citizenship in a short time if a non-resident of the country makes investments in the economy in the amount of 2 million euros or more. You can receive a passport of a citizen of Cyprus with the following investments:


1. Starting a business and hiring local workers.

2. Purchase of residential or commercial real estate.

3. Acquisition of shares, bonds, and other securities.


The Cyprus Golden Passport Law does not oblige to live in the republic itself at the time of obtaining citizenship or after the completion of this procedure. At the same time, after 5 years, you can return your investment by selling the purchased real estate, securities, or the established business. It is possible to obtain a "golden passport" of Cyprus in an expedited manner. The entire procedure for obtaining citizenship will take no more than 4-6 months and for its successful completion your knowledge of language and history would not be tested – this is not a requirement.

What can the "golden passport" of Cyprus offer?

If earlier you did not know about the "golden passport" of Cyprus, what it is or how to get it, then the list of the advantages that this document provides is probably also unclear. It should be noted right away that, according to the current laws of the republic, dual citizenship is permitted. Therefore, when obtaining a Cyprus passport, you can remain a resident of another country while the information about your current status will be disclosed.


Obtaining citizenship offers very attractive opportunities - taking into account the fact that Cyprus is part of the European Union, Cyprus passport gives the corresponding rights and freedoms. By becoming a citizen of the republic, you can live, work and study in any EU country without a visa. At the same time, the Cyprus passport is offered not only to individual investors but also to their family members, which becomes a very weighty argument if you are thinking about moving permanently.

If you just dream of moving to the EU and have not yet decided on a suitable country, we recommend that you pay attention to Cyprus. It is the third largest island in the Mediterranean by area and population. The republic is distinguished by a high standard of living, mild and sunny climate, natural wealth and diversity. Those make Cyprus especially attractive to tourists. At the same time, the Cyprus government pursues a favorable taxation policy that contributes to the growth of businesses. The republic has a high safety index and a low cost-of-living ratio. The population itself is friendly towards migrants. In large cities, there are many schools in English and Russian, while the health care system is also well developed and is represented by both public and private medical institutions.
