The Golden Visa Program in Greece

This program was introduced by the Greek government in 2013 with the aim of encouraging investment into Greece.  This Golden Visa Program offers an affordable real estate investment route to obtaining permanent residency in Europe.  The program has the lowest investment level requirement of all real estate residency visa schemes in Europe at 250 000 Euros.  The qualifying property can be either residential or commercial and can be located anywhere on either the Greek mainland or Greek islands.  Another advantage is that the spouse and all dependents can be included, as well as the parents of both investor and spouse provided certain conditions are met.

Through the Golden Visa Program in Greece, applicants gain the right to live in Greece, but not to work.  The applicant may however set up a business in Greece.  Applicants can enjoy freedom of travel throughout the EU Schengen zone and those who live in Greece can apply for citizenship and a passport after seven years at which time they can dispose of their investment purchase as further visa renewals are not required.
