Portugal: in 2024, the end of the 0% flat tax for foreign retirees
After ten years: retirees fleeing from Portugal
This year, Portugal has decided to end the 0% flat tax for foreign retirees, which had attracted approximately 100,000 pensioners over the last decade, contributing to supporting the country's economy and creating jobs. The end of the facilitated regime, along with increases in housing prices and the cost of living, is already having a significant impact on Portugal's attractiveness for foreign retirees, who might seek more convenient destinations where they don't have to pay taxes on pensions or can enjoy a significantly reduced tax regime.

For this purpose, Cyprus has now become one of the most sought-after destinations for Italian retirees. The island in the Eastern Mediterranean has been attracting many Italian pensioners for years, primarily due to its favorable climate, slower lifestyle, Caribbean-like beaches in the South-Eastern coast, safety, proximity to Italy, and more.

After Portugal, one of the most sought-after destinations is Cyprus
Advantages of Cyprus: climate, safety, and a slow lifestyle
On the island in the Eastern Mediterranean, where the sun shines for more than 300 days a year, foreign retirees benefit from a facilitated tax regime. After relocation and obtaining tax residency, Italian pensioners can receive their gross pension.

The 5% flat tax in Cyprus: an enticing option for pensions above 26,000 euros. The no-tax area: an advantageous choice for retirees with lower incomes.
Depending on the annual amount of gross pension, retirees (excluding former public employees from Italy) can choose one of the following tax treatments:
- a flat 5% tax on foreign pensions (recommended for those with a gross pension exceeding €26,000)
- a no-tax area of €19,500, with a 20% rate on the difference only (recommended for those with a gross pension below €26,000)
