About The Program

The Cyprus Citizenship Program is without a doubt the flagship and most sought after programme that Brookes & Partners offers. It is our most popular and chosen program as it is the quickest and easiest route to European Union Citizenship and aside from ¢75,000 Donation, the full amount is purely a property investment category.
The European Union has long established itself as the most sought-after region in terms of high net worth immigration, accounting for over half of the total number of global citizenship applications, with the Caribbean in second place, followed by North America in third. Also noteworthy are recent studies conducted by global immigration experts, ranking the Cyprus Citizenship by Investment Programme among the “very best in the world”.

Cyprus ranked highly because of its favorable tax regime for new residents, and high net worth individuals, in particular. Boasting at least 320 days of sunshine per year, Cyprus was also classified as the sunniest destination in Europe and one of the safest.
