What our Services Entail

Registration of a Company at Migration Department

A company of foreign interests, which is registered in Cyprus and has third country national Company Shareholders as a majority- including Corporate Shareholders-, can register at CRMD (Civil Registry and Migration Department), providing that it delivers the following, amongst others:

  • Bank documents to demonstrate that a direct investment of €171,000 or above, was made from abroad by the foreign Company Shareholders, into a Cyprus bank account.
  • Cyprus bank account with minimum balance of €41,006.
  • Cyprus Company Incorporation documents.
  • List of Cyprus Company’s personnel.
  • Description of the Cyprus company’s business activities.
  • KYC (Know Your Client) documents (e.g. international passports, proof of addresses) of company’s initial Company Shareholders.
  • Rental/sales agreement of Cyprus Company operating offices.
  • Affidavit from Cyprus Company’s Director(s) confirming the Company’s Shareholders.
  • Cyprus Company’s audited accounts for the fiscal years requested by the Migration Department.


Registration of Employee following successful Company Registration at CRMD

Following successful registration of the company at the BCS (part of the Migration department), employee registration can begin. The first third country national to be employed can  be registered for a maximum of one year, and the following employee for a maximum of two years, depending on their Contract of Employment with the said company.

If the employee currently resides in their own country, then an Entry Permit must be issued first.

If the employee has recently entered Cyprus, for example with a Provisa which is valid, then the registration can be completed with the prospective employee in Cyprus.
