Can I submitted an incomplete Cypriot CBI application to secure my spot?

I understand that Cyprus will suspend its CBI program on November 1 and I want to launch my application before then. However, due to COVID-19 I am having trouble obtaining some civil documents required by the program. In case I cannot obtain all of them in time, can I submit whatever I have before November 1 to secure my spot, then submit supplementary materials?

    The CBI program is officially suspended as of Nov. 1, 2020. Having said that, no incomplete application can be submitted to the authorities.

    Yes, given that the application is duly completed and filed with all necessary documentation before November 1 and only supplementary material is filed afterward.

    You cannot do this. You have to submit a fully completed application.

    The CBI program has been suspended by the Cyprus Government on Oct. 13, 2020. The Cyprus government announced that a new CBI program will be offered soon but no further details were given. However, the Permanent Residence program is available and you might like to consider this alternative route for achieving long-term residency in Cyprus for you and your family.

    Unfortunately not. The Ministry of Interior has stated that only completed applications will be accepted by the end of October 2020. Therefore, no grace period will be given, neither incompleted applications will be accepted to be submitted. As the current situation is quite dynamic, I am not rejecting a possible new announcement in the upcoming days that will change the current status.
