Our Management Services division specializes in offering a complete range of services that include offering high quality properties together with all necessary administrative services required by non-EU citizens who may be interested in obtaining:

• A Permanent Residence Permit in Cyprus or Greece

• A Cypriot Citizenship (Passport)

During the past year the Governments of Cyprus and Greece have introduced a number of new regulations and incentives, with the intention of attracting non–EU residents to invest through various options including buying property. In return, investors acquire either a Permanent Residency or Citizenship/Passport. Acquiring a citizenship by investment is an easy Foreign Citizenship method.

Cyprus Citizenship By Investment

The Island of Cyprus (a member of the European Union since 2004) has managed to attract many foreign property buyers, especially from the Middle East, Asia and CIS countries. Over 1.000 non-EU residents have chosen Cyprus during the past year for investing in an overseas property and have also been issued a Permanent Residency, thus gaining access to Europe. The reasons that many non-EU residents chose Cyprus for a holiday home, business investment or a permanent/retirement home are many. The most important reasons seem to be the fact that Cyprus is a gateway to Europe, has an exceptional standard for education on all levels, but is also a beautiful holiday/retirement destination.

The main criteria required to apply for an Immigration Permit in Cyprus are:

• Acquisition of property of a minimum of € 300.000

• Clean criminal record

The main criteria required to apply for a Citizenship/Passport in Cyprus are:

• Direct investment of € 5.000.000 ( soon to be € 2.500.000 subject to requirements )

Greece Citizenship By Investment

Greece (a member of the European Union since 1981), home to one of the world’s most ancient civilizations, has become an extremely popular destination for Middle East, Asian and CIS investors in recent months. Besides its geographical location, excellent climate and low prices on properties, Greece gives any Immigration Permit holder immediate access to Europe due to its membership in the Schengen agreement.
