Immigration Law

In an ever changing world people have the opportunity to freely move from country to country without restrictions. Issues of permanent residence and of a country’s citizenship are raised when our circumstances change. The island of Cyprus, ideally located at the crossroads between East and West and forming part of the European Union, constitutes an attractive place for business people but also for those in search of a good quality of life.

Our Immigration & Citizenship team have worked hard over the years to provide to our clientele the best options available for obtaining permanent residence in Cyprus. Working closely with the government authorities we have been able to assist many people in settling down on the island, helping them at every step of the procedure.

In recent years Cyprus’ Citizenship Programme, as well as The Permanent Residence Permit Programme, have attracted much interest from people around the world who want to obtain an EU passport and travel freely in the European Union. Cyprus offers a secure environment for families, excellent schooling and a quality of life which is second to none.

As Cypriot based immigration lawyers we aim to assist our clients in dealing with the immigration authorities of the island without causing inconvenience and taking seriously into consideration the anxiety such processes create.

We strive to offer our corporate clients the required knowledge and expertise in bringing to Cyprus their personnel from abroad, ensuring at all times their conformity with the legal framework pertaining to immigration of foreign corporate personnel.

Our international approach and our network of colleagues around the world allows us to offer the option of obtaining citizenship in other countries that offer similar to Cyprus programmes.
