GOLDEN VISA IN GREECE

The Golden Visa program in Greece is the investors’ means to become European residents, travel freely within the Schengen area, start a new life in Greece if they wish and most importantly earn income from their return on investment.

In 2014, the Greek Government introduced a law that allows non-EU citizens from around the world to acquire a Greek residency by investment. The Greek Golden Visa is the cheapest golden visa in Europe giving the opportunity to third countries citizens to get a residency permit with a minimum investment of €250.000. Thus, as Greece is part of the European Union, the prospect investor obtains automatically the European citizenship by investment.

As experienced residential real estate developers, we would be more than happy to cater for your needs, find the best property that suits you and guide you along the whole process of your Golden Visa program journey.

The advantages of the Greek Golden Visa?

  • No residence requirement
  • Visa free travel within EU and Schengen Area
  • Unlimited expiry date of residence permit
  • Opportunity to rent out the investment property
  • Residence applies to the whole family (spouse, children under 21 years old, and parents)
  • Eligibility to apply for citizenship after 7 years of residence
