All ways to obtain Cyprus citizenship

There used to be four ways a foreigner could become a Cypriot citizen: descent, marriage, naturalisation, and investment. However, Cyprus citizenship by investment is no longer available as a direct path to the country’s passport: the CBI program was closed in 2020.Naturalisation based on legal residing is the most common way to get a Cyprus passport. To qualify, a foreigner must accumulate a total stay of 7 years, or 2556 days. But some options cut the term to 5 years, including obtaining permanent residence by investment.
