Digital Nomad Visa

In light of the rapid rise of "remote working" policies implemented by a number of businesses worldwide, this is a brand – new type of residence permit for individuals who wish to live solely in Cyprus but work for companies operating abroad.


The digital nomad visa is for people from third countries who are not citizens of the EU or the EEA who:

  • Are self – employed and their customers are located outside of the Republic of Cyprus and can demonstrate that they have sufficient and adequate monthly income to support their living in Cyprus, of at least €3.500 after the deductions for contributions and taxes
  • Work remotely using information and communications technology
  • Are employed and work remotely by their own company or another company that is located outside of the Republic of Cyprus


  • The right to remain in the country for up to one year, which can be extended for an additional two years
  • Their family members can stay in Cyprus for the same amount of time and receive a residence permit that runs out at the same time as the individual’s own
  • The family members, on the other hand, are not permitted to participate in any kind of economic activity in Cyprus during their time there.

They will be considered tax residents of Cyprus and eligible for a number of tax benefits if they send more than 183 days in the country in the same calendar year. If they meet the additional requirements outlined in this section, individuals who spend more than 60 days in Cyprus but less than 184 days there can still be considered tax residents of Cyprus.


The applicant is required to submit an application and all required documents to the Civil Registry and Migration Department within three months of their arrival in Cyprus. The digital nomad visa can be obtained by submitting an application to the Civil Registry and Migration Department if the necessary prerequisites are met by the applicant who is residing in Cyprus under a different status.
