Citizenship of Cyprus can be obtained expedited: what are the conditions
Citizenship of Cyprus will be available through an express procedure. This applies to talented foreigners.
Thus, on June 8, 2023, a draft law on granting Cypriot citizenship under an expedited procedure was submitted to the Committee on Internal Affairs of the Parliament of the Republic of Cyprus, InternationalWealth reports.
This procedure will be available to highly qualified third-country nationals who have lived in Cyprus for only 3 or 4 years, rather than 7 years as required for the standard naturalisation procedure, and who have an A2 or B1 level of Greek.
According to the authors of the document, the new naturalisation model has nothing to do with investment immigration and golden passports.
The goal is to attract talented foreigners, which Cyprus needs today.
