Cyprus allows investors to include parents-in-law in citizenship application


Cyprus' Ruling Party proposed a long-awaited amendment to the Citizen through investment programme, which allows investors to include their parents-in-law in citizenship application. It is expected that this amendment will be voted in the Parliament in late July and will come in power as soon as possible. 


Under the new proposal, parents-in-law of applicants can obtain Cyprus citizenship for additional investment of €500,000. It is still unknown how exactly this new rule will work and whether this extra investment will be enough for one parent-in-law or for both.  


Citizenship through investment programme proved itself as a reliable source of support for Cyprus economy and real estate sector. The Government of Cyprus amid coronavirus pandemic  decided to fast-track citizenship applications and introduced changes to the investment programme with the aim to make it more secure and appealing to foreign investors. One of these changes is the decision to stop real estate agents from processing citizenship applications in future: only certified law firms, like Astons with its own office in Limassol and professional lawyers will be able to process applications.
