The right to live and study in Cyprus
In line with the Cypriot government’s intention to increase foreign investment and to help its economic development, Regulation 6(2) of the Aliens and Immigration Regulations has recently been simplified by the Ministry of Interior in order to issue residence permits to applicants from non-European countries who intend to invest in the republic, provided that the following requirements are met:
A fee of EUR 500 is payable with the submission of the application and EUR 50 extra for biometric capturing. The application will then be examined by the Civil Registry and Migration Department and will be submitted to a permanent secretary of the Ministry of Interior, who will make a decision within two months. Once approval has been granted, the applicant and all the members of the family must visit Cyprus within one year to obtain the actual permit.
When in Cyprus, a visit is organized to the migration office in Nicosia in order to capture the biometric data for all members of the family applying. The biometric data can be submitted either with the submission of the application for residence, during the application process, or immediately after approval.
