The world is still in a state of suspension with Coronavirus: global travel restrictions are a reality and most countries are in some form of lockdown. The good news is that vaccine rollouts are taking place world-wide and hopefully there will be a grip on this pandemic to bring us back to some kind of normality.
The timing is perfect to take a breath, do some reflection and start working on putting a plan in place for your and you family’s future in Cyprus.
Cyprus is an English-speaking, ex-British colony and full EU member; and is an extremely popular European destination for investors. Not only has it been voted as having THE BEST permanent residency programme on offer, but also huge investment is pouring into the economy with all the infrastructural developments and the enormous natural gas fields.
There has never been a better time to explore investing in Cyprus.
The three main benefits of investing in Cyprus are to secure permanent residency through property investment thereby realising a Plan B, the fantastic lifestyle on offer and the country being a secure investment destination.
Your Plan B.
The permanent residency programme on offer in Cyprus has been voted as the best in Europe because it automatically qualifies 3 generations in the same family line, including dependent children up to age 25 as well as both the parents and the parents-in-law of the main investor. Not only is the application process very quick – it takes just four months for residency to be approved – but the permanent residency status for the whole family is for life, the permit never expires nor needs to be renewed. Another benefit is that you do not need to live in Cyprus to retain your residency status. However Cyprus permanent residents do have the right to apply for citizenship following their physical presence in the country for a number of years, so will in fact follow the naturalisation programme.
Another huge benefit of investing in Cyprus is the fabulous lifestyle on offer. Being an ex-British colony, there is no language barrier – everyone speaks English and all the documentation is in English. Cyprus has a relaxed, stress-free lifestyle offering an ideal family environment. Your children and grandchildren will benefit from excellent schools and tertiary education instructions (all Euro-accredited); and the healthcare facilities and medical care are world class. Cyprus is very similar to South Africa. The golf courses are world-class, the countryside is breathtakingly beautiful and Cyprus has 65 blue-flag status beaches, the cleanest seas in the Med and a mountain range where it snows for 3 months. This is a country for enjoying and exploring.
Safe investment destination
Cyprus offers a safe, solid environment in which to invest in real estate. Properties in Cyprus offer excellent value for money when compared to other European countries – especially homes right on or near to The Med. The lush and beautiful Western side of the country is similar to the Western Cape and enjoys the biggest demand and highest growth.
In Cyprus, unlike some other European countries, as an ex-pat you are not restricted to buying only in Special Designated Areas (SDAs), nor are you prescribed to stay in the country every year to retain your residency. Being able to rent your property out has the real benefit where you can earn a decent Euro-based income. There is a high demand for both long-term rentals and short-term holiday lets. Not only will your asset generate income for you, but also you have complete peace of mind that the property purchase is legitimate and your ownership is guaranteed.
