Buying Property in Cyprus
The logistics for non-Cypriots buying a property in Cyprus are relatively simple compared to many countries.
Citizens 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.
Citizens of Non-EU Member States
Citizens of non-EU member states who are residents of the Republic of Cyprus are allowed to acquire only one property and have to apply for permission via the District Office in which the property is located. The acquisition of one residence is permitted per married couple. However, according to the practice followed, in exceptional circumstances they may be permitted to acquire a second property. Reasons must be given as to why a second property is requested e.g. a holiday home.
Citizens of non-EU member states who are NOT residents in the Republic of Cyprus, the same as the above applies with the exception that they are not allowed to acquire a second property.
