Acquisition of Cyprus Citizenship by naturalisation happens where a foreign national has completed seven years of legal residence in Cyprus he is eligible to apply for Cyprus Citizenship. In the case where the foreign national is parent or child of Cypriot citizen the required time is reduced to five years of legal residence.

Alternatively, a third country national can acquire Cyprus Citizenship by investment through the scheme for the Naturalization of non – Cypriot Investors by exception, which was established by the Republic of Cyprus. The citizenship comes with specific incentives, terms, conditions and control procedures in order to prevent abuse. The applicant should have made the necessary investments during the three years preceding the date of the application and must retain the said investments for a period of at least three years as from the date of the naturalization.
