There are many who buy second homes in Cyprus for the laid back and easy lifestyle here. English is widely spoken in Cyprus and the culture is very friendly to Brits, making them feel right at home. Aphrodite Hills has everything you can think of and buying property at a 5* resort could not be easier.The logistics for nonCypriots buying a property in Cyprus are relatively simple compared to many countriesCitizens of EU Members States Citizens of EU member states who are permanent residents of the Republic of Cyprus are permitted to acquire any amount of immovable property in Cyprus without receiving any permit and without submitting the application form COMM.145 to the Council of Ministers, as they are not aliens in terms of the law. The only requirement is for such persons to submit a Certificate of Permanent Residence. To obtain this certificate you need to apply to the Migration Office of the Republic of Cyprus.Citizens of EU member states who are not permanent residents of the Republic of Cyprus are permitted to acquire any amount of fields and plots of land without acquiring permission from the District Officer whereas they must obtain a permit for the acquisition of a secondary residence.
4 The government in Cyprus has done its bit to attract new investors from China, Russia & the Middle East by offering a Golden Visa scheme to nonEU nationals. This would get them residency permits in Cyprus for an investment of €300,000 or more in properties in Cyprus or a citizenship for an investment worth €2 million. The last few years were not easy for the property market in Cyprus but prices at Aphrodite Hills have remained stable, due to its five star facilities and exclusivity.The country has suffered a lot from the global housing crash of 2008 and property prices have declined by 50 to 60 percent since. Many large banks in Cyprus collapsed because of the credit crunch, largely because of their relaxed lending policies. Cyprus has recovered somewhat because of extensive help from the ECB and the IMF. But property prices continue to remain much lower than in the past, which means there are a plenty of great bargains to be had in Cyprus – you just have to look for them. Buying Property in Cyprus – How It Works It is very easy for Europeans to buy property in Cyprus; they can do so without any sort of restrictions. It is easy for nonEU nationals to buy property in Cyprus as well, as the government of Cyprus encourages foreign investment in properties in Cyprus actively, with schemes such as the Golden Visa, which we talked about earlier. Cyprus is a low tax country and popular for this reason. The only issue foreigner buyers had with buying properties here was that it often took 4 or 5 years to get the title deeds from the Local Council in Cyprus after the purchase of the property. This was largely because of bureaucratic inefficiency. Their ownership over the properties was never under risk – but it made it difficult for foreigner homeowners to dispose of the property on an immediate basis. Now, the Cyprus government has cleaned up its laws and streamlined the bureaucracy. Home buyers can now get their title deeds in a matter of weeks. So, this problem has been solved permanently. The property transfer tax is currently being waived Capital gains tax on the sale of property is fixed at 20%, but does not apply to property bought after 17th December 2015 and is still applicable but we don’t know for how long, It does apply to property bought before 17th December 2015.
There is one for permanent residency (visa) and one for Citizenship (passport), you have to have permanent residency first and then apply for Citizenship.. The two Cypriot immigration investment schemes are fast and efficient at granting a residency permit and second passport. Cyprus is a full member of the European Union and English is widely spoken on the island. Permanent Residency Cyprus Applicants can secure permanent residency in Cyprus through investment in real estate. The programme is one of the fastest and simplest investor visa programmes in Europe. It requires investment of just €300,000 into property to gain the Cyprus residency permit. The residency visa is granted within two months and covers the whole family. It includes parents of both the main applicant and spouse plus dependent children up to the age of 25. It is valid for life and can be passed down to dependents and spouse. The permanent residency programme offers ease of travel throughout the European Union and requires just one visit to Cyprus by all family members once every two years. The investment may be made by a company for which the main applicant and spouse are beneficial owners. The investment can be in to a maximum of two properties provided they reach the €300,000 permanent residency limit. The properties purchased must be brand new.
