You are also required to make a real estate purchase and provide proof of a secure annual income for yourself and all dependants.

Guaranteed by law

If requirements are met, this residency program can lead to Cypriot citizenship.

Program process

The expected timeframe for the application process is 6 months. The first stage of the document collection can differ in length depending on the applicant’s ability to gather the documents. Our team guides this process with samples and best practice advice. The reviewal stage is subject to the respective Government schedule and can be impacted by factors which we, as authorised agents have no control over. Savory and Partners collaborates with the Government throughout the entire process, and we aim to provide the quickest and smoothest experience for the applicant.

Legal basis

Based on the Citizenship Act [CAP 112], the Vanuatu Citizenship Commission grants Honorary Citizenship to individuals under Vanuatu Development Support Program. Cyprus grants Non-EU nationals the right to permanently reside in Cyprus with no renewal requirements. The Permanent Residency is granted to third-country nationals, who apply under Regulation 6(2) of the Aliens and Immigration Regulations, provided that they fulfil the Financial Criteria.
