As expected, the US EB-5 investor program is the most commonly offered residency program to Chinese customers. The programs has always been on the top of the customers’ list, mainly due to opportunities it provides at attending US universities.
Cyprus CIP follows closely behind the US with its investment programs. More precisely, 57% of Chinese RCBI firms provide services related to Cyprus’ CIP program, making it the most popular program among Chinese investors. As an EU member state, Cyprus allows investors as well as their families to the opportunity to obtain citizenship.
