Benefits of investing to the Cyprus economics to obtain the citizenship

"A safety net" in Europe

Cyprus citizenship enables you to permanently reside in the country, as well as to enable you to relocate to any other country of the Europe. In this case, you will possess a travel document. Also, you will be able to open bank accounts and register companies and real estate using your second citizenship.

Tax optimization

Cyprus has the lowest corporate tax rate (10%) among the EU countries. It also has treaties eliminating double taxation with 50 countries. However, you do not automatically become a Cypriot taxpayer, but have the right to choose the jurisdiction you wish to pay taxes to.

A stable income

Every year, more than three million tourists visit Cyprus and this creates a great demand for rental properties. Having signed a cooperation agreement with us, you will receive an ROI of 4% per annum and more. We will take care of property maintenance, searching for tenants and the tax arrangements.
