Citizenship By Investment

GREECE Overview

The Greece Golden Visa is, in fact, the Greece Residency by Investment Program that was introduced by the Greek government in 2013 to enable genuine investors to acquire residency in Greece by investing in real estate.

The five-year residence permit may be renewed every five years thereafter provided the applicant still owns the property. Greece offers a straightforward residency route, with no minimum stay requirement. The application process is quick with further opportunities to apply for citizenship after a set period.

Important Golden Visa GREECE Updates 

Greece will double the minimum investment required for the Golden Visa for some regions From May 1st, 2023, some regions of Greece, including municipalities of Athens, will require a minimum of €500,000 instead of €250,000. Other areas affected by these changes are Thessaloniki municipalities and the Mykonos and Santorini islands. Investors who purchase real estate in the areas listed above and have already paid 10% of the property value as a deposit by April 31st, 2023, will be able to conclude their contracts until December 31st, 2023, and apply under the scheme that requires the €250,000 investment. Investors who have already paid their deposit will have the option to replace the initial property with another one and still apply under the €250,000 threshold, provided they conclude the transaction before the end of the transition period. Under the new rules, you must purchase a single property to qualify for a Golden Visa. In cases of joint property ownership, the minimum value of the ownership share must be €500,000 and must again affect a single property.
