    2. Third-country nationals who are going to apply to live in Cyprus without work, and can confirm a stable income from abroad, sufficient to live on the island (application form MVIS2).

    3. Third country nationals who plan to marry a citizen of Cyprus or the EU (form MVIS2).

    Thus, the Visitor category in Cyprus belongs to the residence permit for financially independent foreigners.

    Foreigners with this status cannot work in Cyprus, but can conduct business as the owner of the company.

    1. Copy of passport (international and domestic);

    2. Proof of income and financial independence:

    6. Marriage certificate (duly translated with an apostille);

    7. Birth certificate (duly translated with apostille).

    Taking into account the practice of considering such applications, it is recommended that a monthly income from abroad in the amount of at least 1000 euros per applicant.

    The law does not establish a minimum amount in an account with a Cypriot bank, but in our experience, a deposit of EUR 15–20 thousand significantly increases the applicant’s chances. These funds can be used in the future without any restrictions.
