Cyprus Investment Programme

Dual citizenship offers an effective tool for international tax planning and provides financial privacy for banking and investment. It improves personal security, enhances the freedom of movement, and opens up significant opportunities. 

Some of the key benefits of the Cyprus Investment Programme are:

  • Ease of getting a 10-year multiple-entry American visa
  • Austrian multiple-entry visa can be obtained in a 10-minute online application
  • Easy to settle and work in any EU country, including Switzerland

The Cyprus Investment Programme is a very practical scheme as there is no need to relinquish current nationality, no language requirement, medical tests or interview, and there are no tax consequences.

Cyprus provides a unique combination of favourable participation exemption provisions on

income emanating from international activities and applies zero withholding taxes on any type of payment made anywhere in the world. 

  • An individual is tax resident in Cyprus if he/she is present in Cyprus for more than 183 days in a tax year
  • Double taxation treaties with 60 countries, including China
  • Exemption from tax on profits from shares, bonds and units
  • No withholding tax on the repatriation of income as dividends, interest or royalties
