Cyprus’ citizenship-by-investment program offers a simple and efficient means of obtaining EU citizenship. Created to encourage development, stimulate growth of the tourism industry and attract investors, the scheme grants full Cypriot citizenship to those that invest more than €2 million in real estate and meet certain other requirements.

Crucially, there are no residency requirements and passports are issued within six months, meaning that successful applicants gain the right to live, work and study in all EU member countries as well as visa-free travel to 158 countries around the world. EU citizens can trade freely within the EU, gaining business access to over 500 million EU citizens. Stable and well-connected, with a pleasant climate and excellent infrastructure, Cyprus is a wonderful place to visit and live. It also currently has a highly favourable corporate tax structure, a comprehensive double tax treaty network and no inheritance tax.

Tax Consequences


Dual citizenship provides an effective tool for international tax planning as well as offering financial privacy for banking and investment. It improves personal security, enables freedom of movement and allows access to the best healthcare and education opportunities. All nationalities are eligible for Cyprus' citizenship by investment program, there is no physical residency requirement, no language assessment, medical test or interview, and passports can be issued to the investor, their spouse and dependent children up to age 28, provided they are in full-time education. Since citizenship is passed on by descent, you can offer a legacy to your future generations.


  • Applicants must hold a clean criminal record from the country of origin and country of residence (if different) and their name must not be on the list of persons whose property is ordered to be frozen within the EU.
  • As long as the investor always maintains/purchases a property with a value of at least €500,000, they can sell the main investment after three years.
  • Parents of the main investor can can be included in the application provided that they purchase a permanent residence property of at least €500,000.

Approved Minthis Investments

Minthis has a selection of real estate options that will qualify buyers for Cyprus' citizenship by investment program. From exclusive customisable Residences to contemporary two and three-bedroom Villas and two-bedroom Suites, all designed by world-renowned architects Woods Bagot, Minthis' properties have strong appreciation potential and high rental yield, making them intelligent qualifying purchases for citizenship.

Why Invest

Real estate at Minthis is an asset that bridges the gap between pragmatic and personal. Property options are diverse and the strategy is low density, guaranteeing exclusivity and long-term property and rental value. Alongside the world-class Residences, Minthis currently features an 18-hole championship golf course, outdoor fitness area and five-star dining. The next three years will see significant investment into a ground-breaking Wellness Centre, The Plateia, Equestrian Centre, and even more extended property options. Established enough to be a secure investment but new enough to ensure appreciation, Minthis has already seen over 80 properties been sold at an average price of €2 million. Just one year after launch, the sales value increased by 7% and it is predicted to rise by 5% annually due to continued forward investment. From a rental perspective, Minthis is expected to generate an excellent annual gross rental yield of 5%.


Known for its beauty, exceptional climate and strategic location as a 'gateway' to Europe, Cyprus represents an attractive resort investment opportunity with global appeal. With a stable economy driven by tourism, it boasts one of the highest growth rates in Europe, and since it has not seen the same levels of overbuilding as competing Mediterranean resorts, stock levels remain low and value high. The island’s property market is one of the continent's fastest growing with steadily increasing prices – particularly for high-end properties in Pafos and Limmasol – ensuring healthy capital growth for investors.
