Acquiring Cyprus citizenship entitles a person to reside and work in Cyprus without any restriction as well as travel without any formalities within the EU. There are three ways in which Aliens can acquire the Cyprus Citizenship: (a) by naturalization, (b) by exemption, and (c) through marriage to a Cyprus citizen.
Obtaining Cyprus Citizenship by Naturalisation
To be entitled to apply for Cyprus citizenship through naturalization, an EU citizen or third country national must have resided in Cyprus for a minimum 7 years (2555 days), of which the year preceding the date of application should be full and uninterrupted.
Obtaining Cyprus Citizenship by Exemption
The government of Cyprus has implemented a new procedure for exceptional naturalization of investors (Non-EU) which aims at facilitating investment in Cyprus by migrant entrepreneurs and investors who, in return for obtaining Cyprus citizenship, are prepared to invest in Cyprus.  For more information, please check out our relevant publication on
