Why Immigrate to Cyprus
 

Cyprus is a very popular destination for foreign investors to seek citizenship in due to its stable economic environment and European Union member status. Incorporating a prominent political and legal infrastructure, and adopting a highly bespoke taxation system, Cyprus is strategically situated to facilitate strong business and trading relations between EU member states. The cost of living in Cyprus is relatively lower than in many other EU member states, such as the United Kingdom, while the country offers high standards of living, a good education system for all residents, an excellent value for money on real estate, and low taxation.

Main features of a citizenship:

Visa-free travel to 136 countries, including Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United Kingdom

Applicant can apply for residency for spouse and dependents

No personal income tax on worldwide income, net worth tax, gift tax, or estate duty tax

Dual citizenship is allowed

Fast application processing (6-10 months)

Physical residency in the country is not required

No requirement to be present during the application process or to attend an interview, unlike many other countries

Investment Options

St. Kitts and Nevis provides foreign investors with two options to apply for second citizenship: to either invest in the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF) by means of a cash investment, or make an investment in a real estate project.

Investments in the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF)

The SIDF is a non-profit organisation that was established by the government of St. Kitts and Nevis to support former sugar workers and the development of alternative industries.

Applicants are required to choose one of the four main categories of the SIDF program, as follows:

  1. Single Application: Requires a non-refundable contribution of USD 250,000

  2. Family Application (up to three dependents, e.g.: spouse and two children under 18): Requires a non-refundable contribution of USD 300,000

  3. Family Application (up to five dependents, e.g.: spouse and four children under 18): Requires a non-refundable contribution of USD 350,000

  4. Family Application (up to seven dependents, e.g.: spouse and six children under 18): Requires a non-refundable contribution of USD 450,000

 

Accounts of the SIDF are annually audited by the country’s largest audit firm and are publicly available.

Investment through the Real Estate Program

There are several conditions that apply to the real estate investment program for foreign investors. These include:

  • A minimum investment of USD 400,000 in a government-approved real estate project

  • The investment must be maintained for a period of no less than five (5) years

  • The applicant must pay the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis an amount of USD 50,047 plus USD 25,047 for their spouse, USD 25,047 for each dependent child under 18, and USD 50,047 for each dependent child over 18

  • The due diligence fee for the main applicant is USD 7,500 and USD 4,000 for any dependents over the age of 16 years

 

The investor is also liable to any other legal fees incurred throughout the process of purchasing real estate in the country.
