Immigration, Residency and Citizenship

Cyprus has aligned its Immigration Law and Regulations with the EU's acquis communautaire on matters such as entry and stay of third country nationals for self- employment and study purposes as well as for long-term residence.

Nationals of non-European Union countries who have been residing in Cyprus for at least five years are entitled to long-term residence permits which are limitless.

Third country nationals’ concern is a requirement which is imposed on all EU countries. Visa obligations for foreign nationals are in line with EU obligations. Cyprus is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement and is currently going through the pre-implementation evaluation procedure. However, the Ministry of Interior, offers accelerated programs for the obtainment of such Cyprus permits.

ConnectedSky, can assist each and every foreign national investor that would like to obtain a permanent residence visa, in order to enjoy the privileges of Cyprus, which can take the form of privileges in their country or regarding their stay in Cyprus or their movement within EU counties. ConnectedSky, can undertake the entire immigration process, which was implemented by the Ministry of Interior.
