BREAKING! Cyprus to call for fast track processing: Your EU Citizenship in less than 6 months

3 17.03.32

Yesterday, the Cypriot Government announced the fast-track processing of citizenship applications through the Cyprus Investment Program (CIP), to boost the economy. This decision was part of several taken by the Government to combat the financial impact of the coronavirus’ outbreak. The Government has asked for the faster processing of CIP applications, relating to exceptional naturalization.


Despite the Government arguing that its economy is not dependent upon this investment scheme, this decision shows that the state is willing to invest in a sector contributing to development.


If the Government proceeds with the remote application process going ahead, it is probable that you will be able to acquire an EU passport without having to leave your home.
