To get a permanent residence permit in Cyprus, it is necessary to buy property in Cyprus in the amount of 300 thousand euros. In this case, not only the owner of the house, but also their family receive a permanent residence permit on the island, and without collecting piles of papers and exams in Greek.
Cyprus Permanent Residence Program (category F)
As already mentioned, not only the buyer of real estate in Cyprus, but also their family has the right to obtain a visa of category F.
The family includes:
- spouse's parents(s)
- children under 25 years old.
To do this, you need to buy a property for at least 300 thousand euros, while 200 thousand need to be paid immediately. Also, the applicant must deposit at least 30 thousand euros to a Cyprus bank and prove income from abroad: for them and for each of their family members.
All category F visa recipients should not have criminal records and illegal income. Also, you cannot get a job in Cyprus.
If the owner continues to own the purchased property, their permanent residence is extended automatically, then it is only necessary to confirm the fact of ownership. Keep in mind that permanent residence will be canceled if you have been absent from the island for more than 2 years.
The program implies that you can buy not one property, but several. The main thing is that the total amount should be at least 300 thousand euros. This is a convenient option for those who want to move their parents or adult children to Cyprus.
You can also buy a property in Cyprus online. DOM Real estate agency provides services for remote display of housing and online transaction processing.
