Residency Criteria

The Ministry of Interior of Cyprus offers an efficient route to obtain the Cyprus Permanent Residency Permit. Namely, the Fast Track Route, which we outline below in further details. This is not to be confused with the Standard Route (Category F) that is also available.

  1. The applicant must have income streams from abroad of a minimum of EUR 30,000;
  2. Hold a three-year fixed deposit account with a Cyprus bank for an amount at least EUR 30,000; the funds deposited must emanate from sources outside Cyprus;
