Application Timeline

There are 4 main steps which prospective applicants need to follow in order to attain a Cyprus Passport.

  • Prior to submitting a citizenship application, the main applicant must engage a law firm and carry out the needed investments (investment minimum of €2.5 million + Purchase of residence).
  • Following a 2 week preparation period when the Citizenship Application File and all supporting documents are prepared, an application is submitted to the Council of Ministers which is responsible for approving/rejecting the applications.
  • Fast-track processing time of the application takes 3 months. During this time, the Ministry of Finance reviews the documents and the Ministry of Interior carries out the required due diligence.
  • Within the next ten days, an Oath of Allegiance Naturalisation Certificate and a passport will be granted to successful applicants.
