Just 10 years ago, Cyprus was considered one of the offshore jurisdictions, and many countries considered transactions with banks from this country risky. However, the situation has changed. For now, opening an account in Cyprus allows you to receive banking services in one of the most reliable jurisdictions.
A bank account in this country may be needed for individuals (for immigration, residence permit, or citizenship registration, as well as for real estate purchases) and for legal entities (settlement accounts to maintain business in the Eurozone, investments directly in Cyprus, taxes payment, etc.).
