How to obtain a residence permit?

You can get a residence permit in Northern Cyprus if you buy any property regardless of its value, unlike in South Cyprus and Spain, where you can apply for residency only in case if you purchase propety above a particular value . Our company, as part of our after-sales service, can help you solve any related problems.

Residence permit allows you to stay in North Cyprus for up to 1 year. Afterwards you will need to extend it for another year. If it is extended for seven years, you can get the TRNC citizenship which will make it easier for you to open your own business.
