Effective as of 1 January, 2017, the so-called “60 day rule” for the purposes of establishing Cyprus tax residency for individuals is of importance to those seeking Cypriot residency.

• Reside in Cyprus for a period of 60 days
• Do not reside in any other single country for a period exceeding 183 days in total
• Are not tax resident in any other country
