Cypriot Citizenship

Cyprus – the island where you can enjoy the weather, the beautiful beaches, short distances between towns and places of interests and the benefits of a safe, cosmopolitan lifestyle.
In addition to the quality lifestyle as a Cypriot citizen, you immediately become a European member state which offers you the possibility of traveling, working and doing business in EU without any legalities and lengthy bureaucracy and procedures.
