Golden Visa Program
Residency by Investment
Greece is a typical Mediterranean country in the center of Europe with a history dating back to the 5th century B.C. With its warm and stable climate and convenient geographical position Greece is considered an attractive place for residence. Greece has a modern, free-market, service – based economy, with an effective and transparent regulatory and legal framework, giving international investors and businesses confidence to invest, grow and prosper. As part of the European Union since 1981, the Schengen area since 2000, and a Euro-adoptee since 2001, Greece is a country that’s safe, accessible, under a dependable rule of law, and has a relatively low cost of living.
The Greek Residency (also known as the “Greek Golden Visa”) provides a visa-free travel to the 26 member countries of the Schengen zone. Greece Golden Visa Program offers a pathway to secure permanent residency in Europe through an affordable real estate in Greece. Residency allows the applicant to live in Greece as long as desired. You are not required to live in Greece prior or during the Golden Visa application. The Golden Visa allows you to obtain absolute ownership of your property and get your own title deed. The residency is permanent with renewal after 5 years and as long as you keep the property under your ownership. You and your company will have free access to the Greek health system and also your children will be free to attend the Greek educational institutions (schools, universities etc). New residents may not be employed in Greece but new residents may set up their own business and register a company in Greece.
